Hydro International wins five-year contract with Anglian Water
Hydro International has been awarded Anglian Water's Framework to maintain Inlet Screens and Screenings handling equipment.
The five-year agreement, with the potential to extend for a further three years, started 1 January 2021 and is being delivered by Hydro International’s UK wastewater services team, M&N Electrical Services.
The M&N team first began working with Anglian Water in 2005 to maintain a few key screen assets. The new award sees the M&N team act as Anglian Water’s Primary Supplier, providing a planned preventive maintenance (PPM) programme to Anglian Water’s selected critical fleet of Water and Water Recycling assets with further remit to inspect, report, service, repair and refurbish screens and associated equipment across their region.
As part of the PPM programme the M&N team expect to undertake over 3,700 site visits a year, servicing circa 850 assets within the Anglian Water region. The team also provide a 365/24/7 call-out facility to ensure emergency breakdowns are attended, actioned and assets returned to service as soon as possible.
Anglian Water service contracts manager Anthony Brittain said: “I have the highest regard for the professionalism and delivery culture that exists within M&N. We have a long-standing relationship with the team and they have repeatedly demonstrated their reliability to the continued success of our operations. They have been instrumental in assisting us with implementing strong cost avoidance strategies and ensuring our asset maintenance programme keeps assets available and working at optimum capacity.”
Stuart Spinney, director of UK wastewater services for Hydro International, said: “We are proud to have won our third framework with Anglian Water to drive the effective, efficient, compliant, and affordable operability of the Screens and associated equipment. This is testament to the work and dedication of our team, and the fantastic operational and cost benefits we have delivered over our 20+ year partnership. We look forward to further developing our relationship over the next five years and beyond.”
Anglian Water supplies water and water recycling services to more than six million customers in the East of England and Hartlepool across an area of 11,000 square miles, making it the largest provider (geographically) in England and Wales.
Hydro International has over four decades of experience in delivering products and services, helping regulators, water companies, developers and contractors to deliver effective wastewater, industrial and stormwater management projects.
To date, the company has provided solutions for projects ranging from bespoke inlet works packages and specialist grit removal on WwTWs to screening & treatment at combined sewer overflows (CSOs).
