Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has appointed three partners to deliver part of its £1.5Bn AMP6 capital investment programme.

 

The AMP6 programme will be delivered under a new Capital Delivery Alliance framework that places increased emphasis on firm’s collaborative abilities.

 

The successful bidders are Skanska Construction UK working with Hyder Consulting (UK), Mott Macdonald Bentley, and Morgan Sindall working with Arup. Contracts will run for an initial five year period from 2015 – 2020 with the option of a further five year extension. Galliford Try and Aecom have combined to secure a contract as a Reserve Capital Partner.

 

The level of capital investment across the AMP6 period will enable Welsh Water to support more than 6,000 jobs across Wales.

 

The successful contractors and consultants will work collaboratively with the supplier in a Capital Delivery Alliance that aims to facilitate collaboration and innovation, drive value in the planning and pre-construction phase and a safe and efficient delivery with sustainable outcomes.

 

Having recently received the ‘draft determination’ for its AMP6 business plan from Ofwat, Welsh Water and its partners will be able to start construction work on the AMP6 programme early to help smooth the transition from the current AMP5 period.

 

Welsh Water chief executive Chris Jones said: “We went through an extensive procurement process to ensure that we selected capital partners that share our vision and values and are committed to delivering the customer service, environmental and financial outcomes that our customers want and deserve.”

 

Bill Hocking, executive vice president of contractor Skanska UK said: “We are delighted to be named as a delivery partner on this important contract. As a team, we provide collaboration skills and aligned values, which create the foundation for a successful working alliance. This is combined with our experience in the water sector and wider industries, from which we can transfer best practice.

 

“Our focus now is on delivering innovative and sustainable solutions that make a positive and lasting difference to Welsh Water customers.”
