At its meeting on November 6, 2017, Veolia’s Board of Directors, taking note of increasing requirements of hard law as well as soft law regarding independence of board members, decided that henceforth, all the independence criteria of the AFEP-MEDEF Code, and in particular the criterion relating to length of service on the board, would be strictly applied.
One and half months after the passage of Hurricane Irma, drinking water production and distribution has made huge progress on the island of Saint Martin. First, in terms of production, because the desalination plant is now producing more than five million liters a day, the island’s entire usual consumption. Then, in terms of distribution, more than 80% of households now have access to continuous water supply. Veolia’s teams are still working tirelessly to normalize the situation for the population.
Veolia announced today that it has been selected by Antero Resources, through its subsidiary Veolia Water North America Operating Services L.L.C, to manage the sophisticated process of loading, packaging, transporting and proper disposal of water treatment sludge generated at its Clearwater Facility near Pennsboro, West Virginia. Antero, a leading independent natural gas and oil company, selected Veolia through its subsidiary Veolia North America, which will be supported by the expertise of Veolia’s Nuclear Solutions entity.
Veolia, à travers sa filiale OTV, a été retenu par le Syndicat Intercommunal pour l’Aménagement Hydraulique (SIAH) des vallées du Croult et du Petit Rosne (Val d’Oise) pour le marché d’extension et de mise aux normes de la station de dépollution des eaux usées de Bonneuil-en-France. D’un montant total de 199,4 millions d’euros HT, dont 112 millions pour la part OTV, ce contrat, d’une durée de 10 ans, va notamment permettre de porter la capacité de traitement de la station de 350 000 à 500 000 Equivalent Habitant (EH).
Following a call for tenders, Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia Japan, and together with its partners, has been selected by the city of Hamamatsu to manage part of its wastewater and sewage scheme including the operation and maintenance of its main facilities of Seien, Hamana and Akura. This 20-year contract is the first long-term concession contract for municipal sewage management in Japan, the nation's biggest infrastructure asset class. It has been signed today and operations will begin in April 2018.
Veolia, through its subsidiary CFSP, has been selected by Le Mans Métropole for the contract for its La Chauvinière wastewater treatment plant. Worth a total of approximately €60 million, or €16.38 million for the construction of the new facilities by OTV-Veolia and €43.5 million for nine years’ operation, this contract reflects the aim to build a truly circular economy around wastewater with the installation of an anaerobic digester and the introduction of various innovative processes.
Following a call for tenders, Métropole Européenne de Lille (MEL) granted Veolia, through its subsidiary OTV Exploitation, the five-year public contract to operate Ovilléo, Marquette-lez-Lille wastewater treatment plant, (France), for around €40 million. With a treatment capacity of 620,000 population equivalent, Ovilléo is the largest new-generation wastewater treatment plant in Northern France.
A reduced water production and distribution service is gradually being reestablished in Saint Martin, where the sustained mobilization of Veolia’s teams has made it possible to exceed initial targets several days ahead of schedule. Since the end of last week, the desalination plant has been operating at over 30% of its production capacity before hurricane IRMA struck, supplying over 1.5 million liters of water per day. This is a decisive step in meeting the fundamental needs of local populations.
