Continuous growth and performance
In Pudong, Veolia serves over 4.2 million people under a public-private partnership covering the management of the entire drinking water service. This partnership, which is unprecedented in China and has been running since 2002, handles a volume of 1.6 million m3 of water every day. Today, the results can be seen. The joint venture has boosted productivity by increasing plant production capacity, extending the network (+134%), using the most effective treatment technologies, and monitoring 4,600 km of pipelines in real time. Innovation is ongoing. As well as creating a state-of-the-art Water Movement Control Center, Veolia and its partners have established a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) Center to ensure efficient network operations and exemplary water quality monitoring provided by a cuttingedge laboratory. All the more impressive given that the population served grew by 1 million at the same time.
