Suez wins Chinese contract

French water and waste utility Suez has been awarded the contract for the performance optimisation of sewer and stormwater systems in the new eco-district of Yuelai, in Chongqing.

The Group will deploy AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage, a digital solution allowing local authorities to monitor their sewer and stormwater networks in real time to mitigate the risk of flooding and control the quality of discharges into the natural environment.

This solution, which is being deployed in China for the first time, is part of the Sponge City programme launched by the Chinese government to increase cities’ resilience to the risk of floods.
