Atkins, Black and Veatch and RPS awarded Anglian contract
Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, working collaboratively with Black & Veatch and RPS, has been awarded a contract to deliver a strategic modelling study for Anglian Water.
The study will see the expertise of the three organisations combined to explore the early development of a number of proposed strategic pipeline schemes, which have the potential to transform water supplies across the east of England.
Atkins, RPS and Black & Veatch have a strong track record of collaborative framework delivery in the water industry, having worked together on the likes of Thames Water’s eight2o alliance and as part of a joint venture for Scottish Water.
The strategic modelling study for Anglian Water will see the organisations:
- Undertake a feasibility workstream to deliver a conceptual base for the Strategic Pipeline Alliance, which will be used to enable the asset delivery process
- Demonstrate a hydraulic model of existing and new assets to Anglian Water stakeholders
The work is due to be completed by December 2019.
Richard Whale, water market director for SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business, said: “Our work with Anglian Water will showcase our expertise in early feasibility assessment, as we begin the journey to transform the region’s forecasted long-term water resource needs into physical assets.
“Drawing on technical expertise we’ve demonstrated on a series of major UK water projects, combined with the latest innovations in digital asset management, our collaboration will deliver a faster, smarter and more reliable outcome for Anglian Water and their customers, while also providing a robust foundation for future design and construction.”
Mark Kaney, director of asset management at Black & Veatch, said: “This is an exciting collaboration that will deliver a key strategic component of Anglian Water’s AMP7 business plan. In providing our innovative digital services, and expertise in asset optimisation and planning to the team, Black & Veatch can play a major role in helping Anglian Water develop new and even more efficient ways of working."
Steve Hogg, water consultancy director (Services UK & NL) at RPS, added: “RPS is proud to be bringing its industry leading expertise in clean water hydraulic modelling and network feasibility to this transformational project for Anglian Water.
"The collaborative approach being adopted in delivery of the project will enable the team to deliver a high quality and high confidence model to enable certainty in investment decisions as the project progresses."
Atkins supports the water, wastewater and water-related environmental sectors with services from water strategy planning and flood management to infrastructure investment planning, design and asset optimisation.
This project builds on Atkins’ design development and initial business case preparation for Wessex Water’s £225 million Optimiser project.
