Wannon Water makes first visit as part of Twinning Program

Posted 1 May, 2017

The Australian Water Association’s Twinning Program pairs Australian water utilities with Vietnamese water utilities to enable the sharing of Australian expertise in achieving Vietnam’s water reform objectives. 

Gary McLay, Branch Manager Asset Systems at Wannon Water has made his first visit to Binh Duong Water Supply & Environment Company (BiWASE) to deliver a course to BiWASE's senior managers on understanding the concepts and practices of asset management as undertaken in Australia.

The objective of the course was to provide an overview of the basics of asset management to illustrate the breadth of asset management, both technical and non-technical, and to briefly touch on key concepts in asset management and typical asset management practices in the Australian water sector.

"This first of 6 reciprocal visits between Wannon Water and BiWASE is considered to be a resounding success and sets the scene for a successful twinning and sharing of information between our two organisations," Gary has said.

Four BiWASE staff will visit Wannon Water in May and also attend Ozwater'17 in Sydney for the official signing of the Twinning Agreement as part of the Ozwater'17 International Program, which you can view in full here.
