Anglian Water has signed contracts with Tier 1 framework partners worth a potential £1.5Bn, part of a 15 year, £9Bn investment programme.


The latest contracts are worth around £450 million during the five year AMP6 period starting in 2015, but could be extended by a further ten years to a possible £1.5Bn. The winning contractors are Barhale, Clancy Docwra, Kier MG and Morrison Utility Services.


Clancy Docwra and Kier MG will deliver Anglian’s Integrated Metering and Developer Services programme which will be worth some £200 million during AMP6. They will deliver the entire domestic and business metering programme including water efficiency audits designed to help customers lower water bills by using less water. The contract includes laying new water mains and existing pipework diversions as well as installing new connections to housing developments.


Barhale, Kier MG and Morrison Utility Services have been awarded the Integrated Operational Solutions programme worth an estimated £250 million. This framework involves small replacement and refurbishment projects like work on filter screens at existing treatment works. It also includes programmes of small scale new installations like pumping stations and control kiosks.


Anglian Water Head of Capital Delivery and Supply Chain Management Jason Tucker 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.”


These are the latest two of four alliances developed by Anglian Water to deliver between £6 and £9 billion of investment over 15 years. Anglian has already confirmed Balfour Beatty, Barhale, Grontmij, MMB (a joint venture of Mott MacDonald and JN Bentley), MWH and Skanska as partners to deliver its Integrated Main Works Capital (IMWC) programme, representing roughly half of the total investment programme. Black and Veatch has also signed as a reserve partner. The final tier 1 framework announcements are due to be announced later this year.
