Amey bags £100 million Yorkshire Water contract

Global infrastructure services company Amey has won a three-year contract extension with Yorkshire Water worth £100m.


The contract will see Amey deliver reactive and proactive maintenance work across Yorkshire Water’s sewer network. This will include sewer repairs, iron work replacement, preventative intervention cleansing, and repairs related to flooding and pollution. 


The contract represents an extension of an existing Waste Water Services Agreement between Yorkshire Water and Amey which began in 2015 and will be effective from this month (April 2020).


Commenting on the contract win, which will require Amey to support Yorkshire in meeting stretching AMP7 performance targets, Neil Cooney, Yorkshire Water account mnager at Amey said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our relationship with Yorkshire Water and look forward to supporting them to meet the significant challenges that the regulator has set for AMP 7.


Amey brings a wealth of innovative operational solutions and collaborative working practices, which will help us deliver against the client’s ambitious targets. This will result in a successful contract for both Yorkshire Water and the end user.” 


Nicola Shirley, Yorkshire Water Operational Contract Manager, added: “We have some challenging performance targets for AMP7 and, working with Amey, we will positively contribute to the Performance Commitments we have for sewage flooding and pollution.”
