Scottish Water appoints actuator supplier

Rotork has become a supplier of new actuators to Scottish Water and its business partners, valvemakers and appointed contractors for the utility's SR15 2015-2021 investment programme.

The new framework complements an existing agreement that provides servicing and spares for the several thousand Rotork actuators installed throughout the Scottish mainland and islands, encompassing onsite and workshop support as well as mechanical and electrical capabilities for system integration into client infrastructure.  

Strategic to both frameworks’ success is Rotork UK’s recently opened Glasgow office, which offers Scottish Water a local centre for enhanced, faster and more economical support. Comprehensive workshop facilities provide repair and overhaul services, stocks of spare parts and a valve automation centre for manual valve automation, actuator replacement and the provision of new actuated valves.

Scottish Water manages more than £58bn of assets to provide 2.5 million customers with water and effluent treatment services. Around £10bn of these assets are treatment works and pumping stations, of which about 50% have been built in the past 20 years. Many of the processes in these facilities utilise Rotork IQ intelligent multi-turn and part-turn valve actuators and Profibus control networks to assist with high levels of automation and provide diagnostic and preventative maintenance functions.
