AECOM, the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, announced that Sunwater has appointed an AECOM joint venture as Engineering and Professional Services Partner for the Queensland, Australia bulk water service provider. Sunwater’s dams and pipeline delivers around 40 percent of the water used commercially in Queensland — more than 1.3 million megaliters a year.

As part of the Prosperity joint venture with Jacobs, AECOM will support Sunwater in achieving its strategic goals and operational objectives through a long-term sole partner arrangement that will enable meaningful collaboration and expand Sunwater’s capacity and capability to meet current and future demand for engineering and professional services.

“Sunwater has a proud legacy of delivering bulk water infrastructure for Queensland’s agricultural, urban, and industrial customers for over 80 years, and we are honored to expand our partnership to help develop and deliver its pipeline of major infrastructure projects,” said Mark McManamny, chief executive of AECOM’s Australia and New Zealand region. “AECOM has a rich history of collaboration with Sunwater and, as the joint venture named as the sole Engineering and Professional Services Provider, our technical specialists will draw on our deep experience in delivering complex programs to unlock the benefits of a longer-term program management approach.”

It lays the foundation for capacity growth, bringing together recognized industry leaders to support Sunwater to safely deliver high quality projects that deliver water for prosperity for future generations.”
