Southern Water unveils three AMP6 delivery partners
Southern Water has announced three partners it will work with to deliver AMP6 improvements under its business plan for 2015-2020.
The contractors named are CMDP, a joint venture between Costain and MWH; GTM, a joint venture between Galliford Try and Imtech, supported by strategic design partner Atkins; and MGjv, a joint venture between Morrison Utility Services and Galliford Try, supported by strategic design partner AECOM.
The three will work alongside MWH, which was separately announced as Southern Water’s strategic solutions partner last month, on the £3 billion plan to upgrade services for the 4.5 million people served by Southern Water in Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
CMDP will work on maintenance and improvements to water supply and wastewater treatment works in the eastern half of Southern Water’s region – Kent and East Sussex – while GTM will do the same for the western half, covering West Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. MGjv will work on expanding and maintaining Southern Water’s network of mains and sewers, which are more than 53,000 kilometres in length.
The new contracts begin this month and will run to the end of March 2020, with an option to extend them for another five years.
Later this year, Southern Water will make a further announcement on which companies will support day-to-day repair and maintenance at its 94 water supply works, 368 wastewater treatment works, and its network of water mains and sewers during 2015 to 2020.
Matthew Wright, Southern Water’s chief executive, said: “We look forward to working with CMDP, GTM and MGjv, together with MWH, as part of our new Southern Water Partnership to plan and implement innovative ways of improving the water and wastewater services we provide. This, in turn, will make us more efficient and able to provide better value to our customers.”
