AECOM nabs $285M contract to rebuild U.K. sewage plant
The upgrades will increase capacity and significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of odor on site
LONDON, U.K.—An AECOM Technology Corp. joint venture was awarded a US$285.8-million contract by Thames Water to rebuild Deephams Sewage Treatment Works, one of London’s largest sewage works facilities.
The upgrades will meet new environment agency sewage treatment standards without disrupting the facility’s current operation. The project will improve the water quality of London’s River Lee, increase capacity to allow for future rises in population and significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of odor on site.
Work on the project is set to begin immediately by preparing for the planning application, which is expected to be submitted during summer 2014.
AECOM is a global provider of professional technical and management support services to a broad range of markets with about 45,000 employees and revenue of $8.2 billion.
