SciDev (SDV) has signed a services agreement with the CYP Design and Construction Joint Venture (CYP D&C).
CYP D&C is a joint venture between Lendlease Engineering, John Holland, and Bouygues Construction.
This joint venture is responsible for the design and construction of the Metro Tunnel Project's two nine-kilometre rail tunnels and five new underground stations in Melbourne.
This partnership between SciDev and CYP D&C will focus on clay and water management associated with digging tunnels underground.
During this process, SciDev will use its water treatment capabilities to treat the slurry that comes from the digging.
"The agreement with CYP D&C follows on from the work SciDev executed within the NSW infrastructure sector and deepens the company's exposure in this industry," Managing Director and CEO Lewis Utting commented.
"The presence of SciDev experts on a major infrastructure project like Metro Tunnel is a positive reflection of the quality of our staff and the professional services we offer," he said.
"The infrastructure sector represents a globally significant opportunity for the company, where our coordinated solutions can support both processing, water and waste management requirements," he added.
