Successful smart infrastructure projects require a blend of leading-edge technologies and the deep institutional knowledge of established critical infrastructure design and construction experts.
As infrastructure experts staying ahead of the digital technology curve Black & Veatch recently hosted world-class tech vendors - including IBM and Capgemini - at its Vendor Expo 2019. “One of our strengths is that Black & Veatch is technology agnostic. We cherry pick the technologies best suited to meet the needs of our clients, and integrate them into our infrastructure projects,” according to Rajiv Menon, Managing Director, Black & Veatch India. “The vendor expo is one of the ways we make certain our teams understand what’s out there that may be of benefit to clients.”
As well as companies serving projects in Black & Veatch’s core markets of water, power and oil & gas, Vendor Expo 2019 included data centre specialist Vertiv Energy for the first time. Building upon successful growth in the USA, Black & Veatch’s data centre business is now expanding its support for India’s data centre investors, owners and operators.
“In many ways data centres provide a microcosm of what Black & Veatch is about: integrating reliable power supplies, a water supply of consistent quality and quantity, and fast, stable telecoms connectivity,” Menon added.
To promote homegrown talent, and support Make in India, the expo included numerous Indian companies – alongside global players. The Indian business supported and showcased by Black & Veatch at the Vendor Expo included: UL Engineering Services, Earth Analytic and Hexagon.
