Working with companies to tackle leaks, we can cut operating costs and safeguard water supplies, as well as controlling the risks – for health and the environment, and those associated with industry regulation and public reputation. Companies face a series of challenges in managing and reducing leakage, not least the impact of ageing infrastructure. From outer space to inside pipes, SUEZ is exploiting advanced technologies to transform leak detection, and on the ground, we provide support with consulting and maintenance services for water company networks and industrial plants.

UK utilities face an increasing challenge in the fight to reduce water leakage and achieve the agreed 50% reduction by 2050

SUEZ has the solutions to cover most elements required to reduce leakage from a network. Start with the most urgent requirement and gradually increase the number of services as needed.

We help our customers to:

  • Anticipate leakage risk: The first step is to map your network system. This enables us to identify risk areas and plan preventive maintenance work, replacement operations and new investment.
  • Implement the right leak detection system: We advise you on the process best adapted to your needs and the characteristics of your networks, depending on the geographic location of your plant, pipe length, diameter and materials, and the type of equipment you have.
  • Repair leaks quickly: To ensure your operational continuity, we offer quick response times for on-site maintenance work.
