Capula manages Severn Trent's telemetry outstations
Severn Trent Water has selected Capula to centrally manage its telemetry outstations. As part of its role as strategic ICA partner, Capula will provide a centralised procurement and stock management hub for telemetry outstations across Severn Trent Water's estate for its Capital Replacement and Replace on Fail programmes.
These will be purchased and managed on behalf of Severn Trent Water and its existing Lot 1 Framework suppliers for AMP6.
The ongoing agreement, which started last month, runs to the end of AMP6 in 2020 and offers Severn Trent Water the benefit of reducing its overall delivery risk in terms of equipment availability. Having stock readily available will improve delivery programmes.
Capula will also provide assistance to Severn Trent Water in assessing, identifying, trialling and selecting alternative telemetry solutions moving forward.
Simon Coombs, business development director at Capula, said: “Better planning of volume requirements will enable improved efficiencies in factory assembly and distribution. This in turn allows cost savings to be passed on to the end client. Capula’s expertise with telemetry systems allows us to add genuine value as Severn Trent Water’s strategic ICA partner.”
