Farrans bags £100 million brace of water jobs


Northumbrian Water has handed Farrans two jobs worth in the region of £100m to improve clean water supplies to customers.


In County Durham and Tees Valley, Farrans will construct a 24km, 800mm diameter clean water replacement pipeline between Lartington Water Treatment Works and Shildon via Whorley Hill.


The pipeline will cross underneath the River Tees and Alwent Beck to a depth of 50m.


It is the first phase of a two-stage project to replace two of the big, main pipes in the water supply system with one.


Phase 2 will take place in 2025 – 2028 on installing a new water pipe between Gainford and Longnewton Service Reservoir to the east of Darlington.


In a separate project, Farrans will also design, supply and install a new bores treatment stream at Barsham Water Treatment Works in Suffolk, where the company operates as Essex & Suffolk Water.


The job includes an interstage pumping station, a contact tank for the existing river works flow, a storage reservoir and a high lift pumping station. The project aims to provide a process plant capable of treating the full licence of the main abstraction bores and the emergency chalk bore.


Neil Barnes, Regional Director at Farrans Construction, said: “We are looking forward to growing our presence in the north of England having recently opened a new office in Leeds to support our work in this area.”


Both projects are expected to complete in 2025.
