AMEC in Town

Multi-national engineering company AMEC Foster Wheeler is presently in the Cayman Islands conducting environmental testing work, for Governmentís ongoing integrated solid waste management systems (ISWMS) project.

Over the course of a two week visit, from 6-20 April 2015, AMEC Foster Wheeler representatives will visit existing landfills on all three Cayman Islands. Installation of new monitoring wells and groundwater sampling are planned at the George Town and Cayman Brac locations.

The group will also look at sediment samples from the north canal in George Town and out into the North Sound. Other plans include water and biological sampling, as well as landfill gas, hydrogen sulfide and dust sampling.

Leading the investigative work is Associate Director, AMEC Foster Wheeler Environment & Infrastructure UK Limited, Julian Bromhead. Mr Bromhead is the environmental lead on the local ISWMS project. Other team members include Environmental Engineer Simon Howard and Environmental Technician Matthew Corcoran.

Governmentís ISWMS Project Manager Jim Schubert says that the visiting teamís findings will be compiled into a Landfill Site Environmental Review Report, which will be made available to the public when the Report is completed.

In late 2014 AMEC won the consultancy to prepare a national solid waste management strategy that will determine the direction of solid waste management in the Cayman Islands for the next 50 years. The company will also prepare an outline business case (OBC) and provide procurement support for the solid waste management project as determined by the strategy.
