Thames Water has started a procurement process for contractors to carry out a potential £900 million programme of repairs and connections to its fresh and waste water pipelines.

 

Contractors have been invited to register for a bidders day by 16 July, and selected water contractors will be invited to a procurement launch event with a provisional date of 28 July. Prequalification responses have to be with Thames by 18 August.

 

Winning firms will deliver projects as part of AMP 6, with work estimated at between £600 million and £900 million, and contracts could be extended into later AMP periods. Successful contractors will also be called upon to carry out network and developer services as part of the ‘FA1230 Infrastructure Alliance’, such as leak detection and water main extensions as well as sewer repairs.

 

It is thought that the works programme will include installing water meters and new clean and waste connections for developers.

 

Successful contractors on this civil engineering framework will be available for subcontracts from Thames’ two Alliance joint ventures who are undertaking some £2.5Bn of work for Thames.
