We are a leading investor in waste water in the U.K., with an interest in the £4.2bn Thames Tideway Tunnel Project, a significant U.K. infrastructure investment opportunity.

Up to 39m tonnes of untreated sewage are currently discharged into the tidal River Thames in a typical year and the project will significantly reduce this.

Tideway is a new part of the sewer network to carry sewage and storm water discharges from the broader London sewerage system. The tunnel will be approximately 25km long, 7.2m in diameter and will run up to 65 metres below the River Thames. Starting in West London, the main tunnel will follow the route of the Thames to connect with the existing Lee Tunnel, with sewage transferred to the Beckton Sewage Treatment Works in East London.
