Design, Build, Operate & Maintain - When Veolia's experts design, build, operate and maintain your new facility's processes, we also take on the expense of assets, overhead and labor. The operations and maintenance of the plant is included in a long-term service agreement with an extended warranty on assets, lifetime guarantee on the facility and performance guarantees on operations.
