At Veolia we are always striving to deliver innovative ways to turn waste into a resource for our customers throughout the UK. Click below for some examples of our great work in action.

BP Chemicals


Saltend Chemical Park is home to some of BP’s most innovative operations including manufacturing acetic acid for a variety of products such as paints, adhesives and solvents. With more and more devices connected to the Internet, the company were looking to access critical facility data in real time to drive operational efficiencies.

The Challenge

Operators need to visually assess the status of BP’s resources, equipment, facilities and personnel in real time, across multiple locations. BP wanted to improve the visibility of large teams of personnel during projects and turnarounds (TAR) to improve safety and operational efficiency.

The Solution

Veolia uses cutting-edge management solutions to deliver cost savings through resource efficiency and optimisation of systems and processes.

We designed and installed a cloud-based online system for BP’s permit offices and Veolia TAR offices. It was fitted in eight hours pre TAR and programmed and tested prior to going live.

The cost-effective system provides real- time planning and visibility of operations. It also improves productivity, planning and communications with ability to foresee any excess or shortage of resources.

The Results

Veolia partnered with specialist suppliers to develop a customised programme for BP in just 8 weeks, significantly enhancing turnaround and improving operator safety.

“The Veolia Operations Board has been implemented during recent BP TAR events and has improved BP visibility of activities, particularly around confined space entry for our permit teams. This allows our permit and safety teams to work more efficiently when receiving live activity and resource updates via the system.”
