Sydney Water’s Infrastructure and Supply Chain Expo showcased the city’s future major water projects with almost 1200 people from across the water sector.

The expo theme was ‘Infrastructure for a 22nd Century City. Let’s build it together.’ It draws on the significant infrastructure delivery program forecast by Sydney Water’s Long-Term Capital and Operational Plan (LTCOP).

Paul Plowman, General Manager, Asset Lifecycle at Sydney Water, said the conference was an opportunity to connect with the supply chain to find and secure partners to help us deliver our large Infrastructure Investment Program

 “Sydney Water is looking to invest more than $30 billion over the next 10 years,” he said. “We need to be well connected with infrastructure delivery players, large and small, so that we can deliver the best outcomes for our customers. The event was a huge success. Alongside keynotes from industry leaders and sessions from Sydney Water on future major projects, we sold out the exhibitor space with 100 suppliers showcasing capabilities and latest technologies.”

“Events like these are critical to giving the industry a chance to come together and talk about water infrastructure in a time where growing populations, climate change, and cost of living pressures are changing ‘the old way’ of doing things,” Plowman said.

The Long Term Capital and Operational Plan is Sydney Water’s optimal investment pathway, capturing our key infrastructure and operational decisions to 2050. Its initial focus is on the next 10 years, with more information on proposed projects available here: LTCOP FAQs (sydneywater.com.au)
