Veolia was delighted to host the 2022 Institute of Water (IOW) Rising Stars last week at North Down Ards Wastewater Treatment Works and Duncrue Street Incinerator.
The 2022 cohort spent two days in Northern Ireland, firstly visiting Northern Ireland Water and then joining Veolia to learn about what we do, the OMEGA PFI contract and take a guided tour of the two plants. It was an excellent opportunity for the cohort to experience different site processes and knowledge share!
The group joined Emma Webster, the Northern Ireland Area Rising Star. Emma works for Veolia on the OMEGA Project as a Process Engineer and said

‘I really enjoyed hosting this trip with Veolia for my fellow Rising Stars! It was an excellent two-day visit to Northern Ireland Water and Veolia with some interesting presentations and site tours. I was delighted to secure the 2022 Northern Ireland Area Rising Star position with the Institute of Water and represent Veolia! It has been great getting Veolia involved in this programme and I am very thankful for their support and encouragement to my personal development! Through the programme so far I have had many opportunities such as visiting Severn Trent, Ofwat, CCW and Scottish Water Horizons as well as networking with people from different water sectors, companies and career levels. It has been a fantastic learning opportunity!’
