Severn Trent retains existing contractors for AMP6
Severn Trent Water (STW) has extended contracts with all its seven design and build engineering partners for a further five years. The new deals will see all companies working together in collaboration to deliver essential investment in the region's clean and wastewater network.
Contracts were initially set up in 2009 and were for five years, with the potential to extend further if both parties agreed. The contract partners are:
- Laing O'Rourke Construction
- Imtech Process
- Morgan Sindall
- Mott MacDonald Bentley
- MWH Treatment
- North Midland Construction
Simon Cocks, Waste Water Services director for Severn Trent Water, commented: “To deliver our future investment programme on behalf of our customers we need to work collaboratively as One Severn Trent − and that means right the way across our supply chain. We’ve developed successful long-term relationships with all of our supply chain partners, and we’re pleased that we can continue to work together as one team to maximise the benefits of these arrangements.
"The vision for the next five years is all about investing efficiently so that we continue to deliver the lowest bills in England and Wales for our customers and leave a legacy to be proud of.”
The contract is worth £250M to Costain and its chief executive, Andrew Wylie, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed by Severn Trent to deliver this major AMP6 contract, in a continuation of the work we are undertaking on AMP5.
“This is a consequence of our strategic focus on building long-term relationships with major blue chip customers who are committing significant investment to meet urgent national needs, like the securing of the UK’s water supply. The long-term visibility of our order book, which comprises over 90% repeat orders, is the direct result of this strategy.”
