This is supported by services including; operational support, repair, maintenance and emergency services which optimise plant performance, enhance reliability and reduce operational cost delivering a high level of resilience.
Experience from Veolia’s service offerings in the industrial market has demonstrated benefits that are transferable to the municipal water market sector, including the provision of capital solutions to solve technological problems, improving resilience and providing ongoing process and technology based services.
