Water in the environment

Water covers around two thirds of the planet’s surface. Almost 97% of water is contained in the ocean, leaving only 3% for freshwater. Freshwater is distributed in various ecosystems across lakes, rivers, glaciers, ice and the atmosphere. By combining multiple disciplines across the entire water cycle, we help create a sustainable environment for people and natural ecosystems.

Balancing the demands of water use and environmental protection in a rapidly developing world requires an understanding of the interaction between surface, soil and groundwater systems and ecology. Amec Foster Wheeler believes that finding this balance requires a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach of hydro-ecology and ecosystems management. 

We specialise in all areas of hydro-ecology, including hydrology, hydrogeology, ecology, economics, geomorphology and water quality, supported by water operations and engineering design.

Our customers rely on oceanographic and marine services to enable them to improve the safety and efficiency of their operations. Our Met-Ocean team assesses and finds risks associated with weather and the oceans that impact facilities and operations. 

In order to make highly informed decisions about environmentally sensitive operations during offshore and coastal engineering projects, our customers need high-resolution meteorological and oceanographic forecasts. By integrating customer data with public weather data into custom models, we deliver meteorological forecasting excellence.

Government, business and industry customers around the world require risk, response and recovery services to become more resilient. Our experience defining, displaying and communicating risk and mitigation solutions provides our customers a path for improved asset protection. Once a risk is identified, communicated and mitigated to the maximum extent practical, our staff assist our customers to prepare for the risk that remains. Our own trained response teams are also available to respond after an event to speed recovery. Our full service planning, environmental assessment, engineering design, permitting and construction management services provide our customers a navigable path to recovery. Improved resilience is built into all recovery services we provide our customers.
