ESD, a joint venture of Black & Veatch, Galliford Try and MWH Global, has been appointed preferred bidder for the framework to provide water and wastewater treatment services throughout Scotland. The contract is estimated to be worth £560 million, and will be delivered in collaborative alliance with Scottish Water.

ESD will start work in spring 2015 and be responsible for programme management, design, stakeholder engagement, construction and commissioning for water and wastewater treatment projects across all of Scotland. Service for Scottish Water’s customers will be enhanced through both new-build and capital upgrade projects. Scottish Water’s non-infrastructure Quality and Standards IV (Q&S) framework will run for six years.

Under an alliance agreement Black & Veatch, Galliford Try and MWH Global will operate as equal joint venture partners working in collaboration with Scottish Water. This programme forms part of a wider investment by Scottish Water to improve treatment works serving its five million customers.

Douglas Millican, Chief Executive of Scottish Water, said: “As well as being good for the economy, our investment programme will enable us to build on improvements to customer service around Scotland, while protecting and enhancing the environment. Appointing ESD to the programme will help ensure our customers continue to receive fresh drinking water and have their wastewater treated to the highest standard, while benefitting from one of the best value water utilities in the UK.”

Tony Collins, ESD’s Chief Operating Officer said: “ESD stands for efficient service delivery, which is what this joint venture is all about. Through collaborative working ESD will make a significant contribution to the environment and wellbeing of communities across Scotland whilst also delivering a capital programme for Scottish water which provides significant financial efficiencies.”
