20 years ago, a small group of people had a dream: build the exact replica of Hermione, the majestic vessel that allowed General Lafayette to join American revolutionaries in their struggle for independence in 1780.
As a French-American company, we have a particular fondness for this project. This 185 ft tall boat is full of history and is an important symbol for us: it demonstrates the strong collaboration that has existed between USA and France for centuries. Our company is a great example of the existing bond between the 2 countries.
The ship’s construction took several years because they wanted to build it as it would have been done in the 18th century. In April 2015, the boat set sail for the USA. Hermione arrives this week (7/1) in New York City and will stay until July 5th. What better way to celebrate Independence Day than to watch Hermione pass in front of the Statue of Liberty and welcome the boat that helped us fight for our independence more than 200 years ago?

On January 2, 2015 SUEZ began a 20-year partnership with Nassau County in the Long Island suburbs of New York City.  Together with the County, SUEZ will operate and manage three sewage treatment plants and collection system for 1.2 million people.  It is our responsibility to promote a sustainable community in Nassau County and return clean, treated water to surrounding bays and estuaries.
Since we care about the protection of our shared natural resources, this is not the first time we took action to improve the wastewater quality. In 2013, the Massachusetts Water Pollution Control Association recognized the Town of Cohasset—whose operations are managed by SUEZ—as the best small wastewater treatment facility in the state. Our partnership with West Basin Municipal Water District in California is also an excellent example of our commitment to water quality: in partnership, we have been able to recycle and reuse wastewater to create five different streams of water.
The partnership between SUEZ and Nassau County, called a “reason for hope” by County officials, was awarded yesterday by the National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP) through its awards program at the annual P3 Connect 2015 Conference in Boston. The NCPPP is a non-profit organization which has been encouraging public-private partnership for over 20 years now.
According to its president Art Smith, “NCPPP recognizes those organizations and individuals going above and beyond to advance the concept and implementation of public-private partnerships across the country.”
Our partnership with the County was recognized because it illustrates a commitment to improving the quality of life of every Nassau County resident and a way of saving $230 million for the County and its taxpayers over the term of the agreement.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said “This contract is a milestone for Nassau County (…) Working with Suez Environnement we can look forward to a day when health is restored to our bays and our way of life in Nassau County, which has all but disappeared, makes a dramatic comeback.”
