Northumbrian Water has awarded four firms AMP6 contracts – potentially worth £333M over nine years – to maintain high quality drinking water across its service area.

 

Activity will include network improvements, water mains installation and renewals, new service and meter connections, repair and maintenance, enabling works and reinstatement. The winning firms will carry out works in the North East of England and in Northumbrian Water’s southern region where it operates as Essex & Suffolk Water.

 

Fastflow Pipeline Services, based in Washington, Tyne & Wear, has won the major share of the work with an annual value of £20.5M in the North East and £9.5M in Essex.

 

Other contracts have been awarded to Crossglade from Chelmsford, Essex with an annual value of £5M; Lowman from Southend, Essex with an annual value of £1M and T4 Survey from Ipswich for work in Suffolk with an annual value of £1M.

 

These framework partnerships will run for an initial three years with the option to further extend them for six more years. In total the contracts are expected to be worth around £37M per year.

 

Northumbrian Water’s water director John Devall said: “We are determined to maintain and improve the extremely high water quality and levels of services we currently deliver, and these contracts will help us achieve our leading targets.

 

“This is great news for customers and also great news for the people who work for the chosen companies and their sub contactors.

 

“Selecting a special group of companies to help us deliver our investment programme allows us to guarantee work and quality standards at competitive prices and means we can develop mutually beneficial relationships.

 

“The work is of a specialised nature and the selected companies have a strong presence in the regions we operate in.”

 

Northumbrian Water said further framework contract announcements will follow next year, when it names its chosen partners to deliver investment for water treatment and sewerage assets.
