Black & Veatch Corporation Key Developments
Black & Veatch Wins Desalination Projects in Hong Kong and Singapore
Jan 13 16
Black & Veatch has won desalination projects in Hong Kong and Singapore. Both central to each city's water resiliency planning, the two plants are set to establish new design and energy-use benchmarks for future water treatment plants. The Water Supplies Department of the Government of the Hong Kong SAR has appointed Black & Veatch as the owner's engineer to develop the first stage of Tseung Kwan O desalination plant. With an initial capacity of 36 MGD (million gallons per day), the plant will meet about 5% of Hong Kong's water demand. Black & Veatch recently completed the plant's feasibility study. The study identifies opportunities to harness green energy that could reduce electricity costs. Black & Veatch will design and provide construction supervision across the first phase of the desalination plant. A further 36 MGD, phase two, is also planned. PUB, Singapore's national water agency, has appointed Black & Veatch to provide consultancy services for the country's fourth desalination plant. Planned with a capacity of 36 MGD, the plant will help meet future water demand in the city area and strengthen Singapore's drought resilience. The plant in Marina East will be designed to treat two different sources of water: seawater from the Singapore Straits or raw water from the Marina Reservoir. Initially, Black & Veatch's role will include the preliminary design for the development of the plant under a Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO) arrangement. Black & Veatch will continue to provide services to PUB throughout the plant's development.

Tennessee Valley Authority Selects Black & Veatch as Engineer of Record for Boone Dam Remediation
Dec 14 15
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is remediating the Boone Dam to repair seepage through the dam’s foundation. TVA has selected Black & Veatch as engineer of record responsible for the design and quality assurance of the fast-track project. TVA’s top priority at Boone Dam is the safety of its employees and the general public. TVA has lowered water elevation at the reservoir while seepage mitigation measures are designed and implemented. The dam and surrounding structures are continuously monitored so that any potential issues or changes in their condition can be identified in their earliest stages. Due to the impact on the region due to lower water elevation, TVA expedited the project and construction work has already begun. TVA is committed to repairing Boone Dam as quickly, effectively and safely as possible. The reservoir is expected to return to normal operation in five to seven years.
