Major gas renewal in Wales

Major gas renewal in Wales

Amey has been awarded an eight-year £144 million framework for delivery of a 3,800 kilometre gas main replacement programme by Northern Gas Networks.

 

The contract includes maintenance of more than 37,000 kilometres of gas pipeline, delivering service and meter connections and emergency repairs.

 

Howard Forster, Customer Operations Director at Northern Gas Networks said: “As the most efficient gas distribution network in the country, we are committed to ensuring that we deliver high service standards to all of our customers. Over the next eight years we shall be working with Amey, as well as a number of locally based engineering businesses, to replace more than 3,800km of old metal gas pipes with modern plastic equivalents.

 

“It's a hugely important undertaking and shall ensure that our customers and their future generations continue to benefit from a safe and reliable gas supply.”

 

Mel Ewell, Chief Executive of Amey, said: “Securing this contract is great news for the business and testament to our collaborative partnership with Northern Gas Networks. We look forward to continuing to work closely together, to deliver a service that the communities in the North of England can fully rely on.”

 

Amey starts on another major utility contract this month with Welsh Water, for services in South Wales, worth more than £18 million a year for six years. Under this contract Amey takes responsibility for repairing and maintaining about 20,000 kilometres of clean water pipes as well as meter installation and new connections.

 

The successes come following a dramatic expansion of the company's utilities capability thanks to the acquisition, by parent company Ferrovial, of utilities support service provider Enterprise in April, which was merged with Amey.
