Black & Veatch Corporation Key Developments

Black & Veatch Secures Contract for Licensing Technology and Related Services

Black & Veatch has secured a contract for the licensing technology and related services for sulphur recovery units (SRU) and Acid Gas Removal Units (AGRU) to support natural gas processing on the Jurassic field, a project central to Kuwait Oil Company's (KOC) strategy to increase gas production. Kuwait has a very aggressive gas production target for 2030. Developing the Jurassic field is key to attain this goal. Black & Veatch's contribution centres on acid gas removal and sulphur recovery at Jurassic Gas Facility 1, which will produce about half of the Jurassic field's potential.

Black & Veatch Wins Wastewater Treatment Plant Contract

Civmec Limited in joint venture with Black & Veatch (BCJV), has been awarded an EPC alliance model contract with the Water Corporation of Western Australia for the design and construction of the Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade to 180ml/day. The plant is located 22km south-east of Perth, Western Australia. The upgrade to the Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant comprises: New grit removal facility; New flow distribution channel; Expansion of existing odour collection and treatment systems; New sedimentation tanks; and Conversion of the existing batch reactor to a permanent aeration facility. The contract awarded to BCJV will commence in December 2016 with approximately 200 personnel employed on the project at its peak and with construction on site scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

Black & Veatch Wins Water Management Role in Expansion of HKIA

Black & Veatch has won a water management role in the expansion of Hong Kong International Airport, or HKIA. The Black & Veatch team will design the hydraulic and water treatment systems for the new Three-runway System (3RS) to be completed by 2024. The HKIA expansion will meet future air traffic growth and maintain its competitiveness as an international aviation hub while improving the facilities' operational resilience. The company's design will save on future costs, reduce demand for potable water supply and increase the lifespan of the infrastructure. The design will also incorporate smart network systems and asset management principles that will enable short and long term decision making that optimizes water resources as well as operational and capital costs. The sewerage system will be protected against severe corrosive attacks given its coastal location and potentially septic environment through a composite of physical, chemical and biological solutions. An advanced grey water system will first collect then recycle grey water along with other treated water for reuse. The treated grey water will be reused for irrigation. This will reduce demand for potable water for irrigation and reduce the loading to the sewerage system. Compact technologies will be used to limit the footprint required for sewage treatment without sacrificing treatment efficiency. Seawater will also be used as an alternative source to cool water for air conditioning and flushing purposes, further reducing demand for potable water. A smart drinking water supply system will provide real-time monitoring, automatic supply control, intelligent data analysis and a decision-making tool to take cost-effective actions.
