Mott MacDonald wins projects in Singapore and Albania

mott-macdonald-advertUK-headquartered consultancy Mott MacDonald has announced two major international environmental contract wins.

Firstly, it has been appointed to investigate the impacts of climate change on Singapore’s energy and telecommunication infrastructure. The appointment by the country’s National Environment Agency falls within the second phase of the Singapore Government’s Second National Climate Change Study, which in the first phase has already looked at climate projections for the country and the wider region up to 2100.

During the second phase, Mott MacDonald will be helping the country understand the impacts of climate change in a range of areas, including water resources and drainage, biodiversity and greenery, network infrastructure and building infrastructure, whilst recommending adaptation measures and strategies for energy and telecommunication network infrastructure and operations.

Mott MacDonald project director, Chris Preston, commented: “Singapore has been hit by several cases of extreme weather in recent years, including floods in 2013 and a dry spell in 2014. Our research will contribute towards efforts to protect the country from future extreme weather events. Mott MacDonald was appointed on this project on the basis of the team’s technical quality of methodology and their careful consideration of the challenges involved in the project, particularly surrounding model uncertainty.”

The consultancy is also set to provide technical advisory services to improve the efficiency of water resources management in the Drini-Buna and Seman rivers in Albania.

Appointed by the Albanian Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Water Administration, Mott MacDonald will be assessing availability and demand of water resources, surface and groundwater quality, and the status of the current infrastructure as part of the the river basin management plans project which is being funded by the World Bank. The findings will be used to compile priority water resources management plans and development interventions.
