The Koch fertilizer production plant in Enid, Oklahoma, had a water problem—there wasn't enough, prices were too high, and it needed more. After performing technical evaluations and developing preliminary process designs, Black & Veatch recommended a water treatment system that would receive tertiary wastewater from the city's wastewater treatment plant, treating it for reuse within the fertilizer plant.
Arnold Air Force Base is home to the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC), the largest and most advanced complex of flight simulation test facilities in the world. Like many military installations, on-site facilities are aging and require Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization (SRM) services.
As all-electric cars increase in popularity, a critical issue for drivers is having sufficient charging resources to stay on the road during longer trips, not to mention paying for the power. Volta Charging aims to help alleviate range anxiety by rapidly scaling its portfolio of free public electric car charging stations.
In 1985, the Hastings Groundwater Contaminated Site was placed on the National Priorities List. Because of Black & Veatch’s trusted performance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 7, the agency requested that Black & Veatch assist in the remediation of various contaminants of concern.
Among the many projects Black & Veatch delivered to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, our role in the design of a reconstitutable deckhouse, which houses the Aegis Weapon System and other electrical and mechanical components, provided a unique and unmatched solution for the Missile Defense Agency’s most stringent requirements.
There are five small cities in Rockwall County, with the population spread out over a largely rural area about 30 miles east of Dallas, Texas. The county's aging first-responder radio system urgently needed to be replaced. As part of the consulting engagement, Black & Veatch developed system alternatives to help the county and participating cities better understand potential system replacement alternatives.
