Mouchel was appointed to Welsh Water’s AMP6 framework in September 2015. Through the framework Mouchel is supporting Welsh Water deliver their vision for sustainable drainage plans, utilising best practice approaches within the investment planning sector. Overall, the framework covers 30,000 km of sewers, 1,912 sewage pumping stations and 838 wastewater treatment works.
Andrew Power, Mouchel technical manager for water, said: “This appointment is testament to our previous efforts and our strong working relationship with Welsh Water. This win will provide significant opportunities for the water team in Sutton Coldfield over the next 18 months, which will allow us to develop staff in key technical skills in the water sector and provide an excellent ongoing service for Wales.”
