SUEZ's Water Division has been in Australia since the early 1970s, initially as Degrémont Australia. In 1991, we changed our name to Australian Water Services, and then in 2007 reverted back to Degrémont Australia. In March 2015, together with 40 other brands around the world, Degrémont Australia rebranded to SUEZ providing water, waste solutions and Oil & Gas systems to our clients in Australia and New Zealand.   

Drawing on more than 70 years international experience, SUEZ has established a reputation for excellence and superior customer service, and is one of the longest-serving water treatment specialists in the country. Whenever there has been a major breakthrough in water innovation and management services in Australia over the past 40 years, we have been at the forefront:

  • The first large-scale drinking water filtration plant for a capital city (and still the largest in Australia) – Sydney’s Prospect Water Filtration Plant (1996)

  • The first drinking water desalination plant for a capital city – the Perth Seawater Desalination Plant (2006)

  • One of the world’s most advanced wastewater treatment and water reuse plants, essential to a region-wide integrated water management system – the Pimpama Recycled Water Treatment Plant in south-east Queensland (2006)

  • The first water alliance contract for the management of a capital city’s entire water and wastewater infrastructure assets and network – Adelaide’s Services Alliance (Allwater) (2011)

  • The first ecologically integrated industrial water infrastructure facility in a sensitive area – the Victorian Desalination Plant on the pristine Bass Coast at Wonthaggi (2012)

  • Ready for the resource revolution – SITA Australia, Degrémont Australia, Process Group, and their subsidiaries joined together under one brand SUEZ to provide water and waste management solutions, and oil & gas systems across Australia and New Zealand. (2015)
