Works to be delivered by the alliance include clean water network repair, rehabilitation and maintenance, and leak detection, along with constructing new water mains. The will also carry out logistics management, scheduling of programmes and development of customer and stakeholder services.

 

The contract also allows scope to add further work strands in the future, including metering and waste water network activity.

 

The alliance will begin in April 2015 and includes the option for an extension into the AMP7 and AMP8 periods, meaning the contract could run for up to 15 years.

 

Naming of the preferred bidders follows a rigorous procurement process.

Thames Water managing director of wholesale water Bob Collington said: “We strongly believe these two alliances will create aligned goals and objectives throughout the supply chain, standing us in the best possible position to deliver our customer and stakeholder promises.”

Targets for AMP6 include reducing leakage and enhancing the service Thames Water offers its 9 million water customers across London and the Thames Valley.

 

Agility Alliance director Drew Ritchie said: “Agility is delighted to have been awarded this long term strategic relationship with Thames Water, together with our new alliance partner KCD. This is a fantastic opportunity to partner with Thames Water to drive up standards in safety, further improve customer service and deliver efficiencies through innovation, sustainability and best practice.”

 

KCD director Paul Fletcher added: “The alliance should provide an innovative and forward-thinking way to deliver comprehensive asset management services; enabling Thames Water to maximise the performance of its network, so we are very much looking forward to starting work with them.”
