Anglian Water has announced contracts worth around £450m over the next five years to deliver upgrades aimed at helping customers save money.
The firm today signed contracts with Barhale, Clancy Docwra, Kier MG and Morrison Utility Services.
Clancy Docwra and EDP Top100 firm Kier MG will deliver Anglian Water’s Integrated Metering and Developer Services (IMDS) programme in a partnership worth about £200m.
Working with Anglian Water employees, the two firms will deliver the entire domestic and business metering programme including water efficiency audits to help customers save water, and save money. They will also lay new mains and divert existing pipework, and install new water connections to housing developments.
Barhale, Kier MG and Morrison Utility Services will deliver the Integrated Operational Solutions (IOS) programme, worth in the region of £250m. They will deliver the majority of small replacement and refurbishment projects, such as work on filter screens at our existing operational sites and treatment works. As well as programmes of small scale new installations, such as pumping stations and control kiosks across the entire Anglian Water region.
Jason Tucker, Head of Capital Delivery and Supply Chain Management for Anglian Water, said: “Confirming our partners for these two vitally important alliances is another significant step forward in our AMP6 procurement process.
“We are determined to deliver maximum efficiency and satisfaction for our customers by working closely with these carefully selected organisations to drive innovation.”
Contractors have committed to support the delivery of the 10 outcomes Anglian Water has promised as part of its business planning for the next five years. Contracts may also run for 15 years, with a review after each five-year period which means these could deliver around £1.5bn of investment over 15 years.
One of East Anglia’s largest crane hire companies, Quinto Crane & Plant Ltd, has been bought out in a multi-million pound deal, with the new owner promising to safeguard the jobs for its 125 employees and guaranteeing future investment.
