In 1985, Macao Water is owned by a joint venture named SUEZ NWS Limited (formerly known as Sino-French Holdings (Hong Kong) Limited) formed by French-based SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT (formerly known as Lyonnaise des Eaux) and NWS Holdings Limited from Hong Kong. The joint venture became the major shareholder by holding an 85% of equity in Macao Water and has signed a 25-year concession contract of public water supply service with the then Macao-Portuguese Government in the same year.
