Binnies strengthens its leakage service offering with new hire Akua Adu-Gyamfi

February 26, 2021

Akua Adu-Gyamfi joins Binnies (formerly Black & Veatch) from Jacobs, where she served as a consultant to water utility companies, and will specialise in leakage assurance services to support clients in developing improved regulatory water-balance processes and strategic leakage-management solutions.

Akua began her career as a graduate engineer at Bristol Water, where she developed skills in optimising water networks through advanced pressure management and active leakage control. She has continued to specialise in leakage management and has gained extensive experience in smart metering and demand management. Akua’s previous work included a secondment with Thames Water where she led the delivery of the water infrastructure network study (WINS) and the bulk metering project. Akua’s most recent work included a role as a technical auditor for shadow reporting for leakage against the new United Kingdom water industry research (UKWIR) reporting methodology during the June 2020 assurance period. Prior to Jacobs, she worked for a technology company that developed monitoring, analytics and decision-making tools to drive operational efficiency in the water sector.

Akua joins Binnies at an exciting time in the organisation’s 100-year history. Binnies is the new trading name for the Black & Veatch water and environment businesses in Europe and Asia since they joined leading integrated environmental, engineering and technical services firm RSK group in January 2021. Binnies specialises in water utility, infrastructure, engineering and environmental projects.

Akua will join Binnies’ rapidly growing Leakage Services Team, which offers a suite of industry-leading digital solutions that combine cutting-edge technology with engineering expertise and analytics to ensure speed-to-value is realised for clients.

“Regulatory leakage targets in asset management plan period seven (AMP7) and beyond present a significant challenge for our sector,” said Binnies Head of Leakage Services, Stuart White. “Water companies will have to embed new ways of working at scale quickly and efficiently to be successful. The adoption of new technologies driven by digital transformation, combined with a strategic leakage approach that considers the business processes required to implement new approaches, is a critical blend. Akua brings experience of delivering these types of solutions and a wealth of technical leakage expertise.”

To help water companies to develop resilient water networks and to reduce losses, Binnies has developed innovative solutions with strategic partners. Its digital performance intelligence ecosystem ECO-X enables the company to work collaboratively with technology partners to provide a connected suite of products and services designed to meet all its clients’ needs.
