We are proud to announce that SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT NORTH AMERICA rose sharply up the ranks of the largest environmental services companies operating in North America in the annual industry listing complied by Engineering News Record.
Our rise in the rankings, which are based on revenues, is due in part to United Water, SENA Waste Services, Degremont Technologies and Utility Service Group reporting jointly.
What make this news even more exciting for us is that is clear that our ambition to excel all industries in which we operate achievable. Currently we rank:
- Second in serving municipal clients in the country
- Third for water treatment and supply services
- Third in companies specializing in only environmental services (versus heavy construction)
We could not have achieved this significant business growth within our companies without the dedication of our employees. It takes innovation and dedication to achieve this success. Here are some of the amazing projects that have recently contributed to our growth within the environmental services industry:
- SENA Waste Services won two operation and maintenance contracts with a total value of $120 million, with the City of Edmonton, Alberta. Operating in tandem, the Edmonton Composting Facility and the Materials Recovery Facility at the Edmonton Waste Management Center enable the city to divert 60% of household waste from landfill through recycling and composting.
- United Water, in February, announced the signing of a new five-year agreement worth approximately $50 million with the West Basin Municipal Water District to operate and maintain the District’s Edward C. Little Water Recycling Plant and four satellite plants. Together the facilities comprise one of the most unique water recycling operations of its kind, having recycled more than 140 billion gallons in drought-stricken California since 1995.
- Infilco Degremont, in September 2013, won the contract to supply seventeen of its Climber® Screens to the US Army Corps of Engineers for channel debris removal to provide critical frontline protection and safeguard the integrity of its Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps facilities near Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans and handle an aggregate flow of 15.7 billion gallons per day.
