About Michaelridger

Civil engineer in the water industry interested in cllaboration and WASH in developping countries.


I am a civil engineer with 15 years’ experience in the water industry. I started my career as a client’s designer with Severn Trent Water (UK), and moved to consulting design (MWH UK), construction (4D Brighton and Hove), planning (MWH Australia) and project engineering (Atlas Engineering), before returning to a client organisation as senior reliability engineer with Sydney Water.
Currently I manage the interface between projects and the production team. I have the pleasure of working near Sydney’s’ iconic Bondi beach, but share in the responsibility for looking after the plant that keeps it clean.
I am involved at a site level in a broad range of asset management activities. From asset condition monitoring to root cause analysis, preventive maintenance planning, infrastructure investment and capital project delivery.
I am interested in BIM / Digital engineering for asset management, operation and maintenance and IIoT condition monitoring.
I was born and brought up in Italy, studied and worked in the UK and have called Australia home since 2011. I live in Sydney with a wife and 2 boys.
