How did the company name come about?
The name Biwater – or two waters – was adopted because of the company’s involvement in the provision of clean water and the treatment of wastewater.
Why does the Biwater logo incorporate a fish?
We often get asked this question – the choice of the fish for the Biwater logo was far from accidental. It was chosen for its ability to convey life, health and clean water, which are paramount to Biwater’s business activities. Also, the fish was considered to be a universally acceptable symbol that would resonate with people from all corners of the globe.

CHUB (scientific name: Squalius cephalus)

The chub is strong and solidly built. At home in most waters, its tastes are wide-ranging and it is known for tackling very large bait. Biwater like the chub, has the strength and capability to take on the challenges of major water infrastructure contracts, in any environment, on a worldwide basis. It is no accident that Biwater is now a company with substantial resources, which are brought together in a unique combination.
