Yorkshire Water hands Sweco UK telemetry commission
Engineering, environment and design consultancy Sweco UK has secured a three-year commission with Yorkshire Water to manage the installation of telemetry assets at 1,200 wastewater sites.
Sweco’s asset management team will specify and install or upgrade monitoring devices across the water company’s sewer network.
The devices will provide accurate data every 15 minutes, allowing Yorkshire Water to monitor and manage the performance of its assets.
Leeds-headquartered Sweco’s team of engineers will manage the full delivery of the project from desktop and site surveys, to specifying the devices and managing installation contractors.
Jacqui Briggs, portfolio lead at Sweco, said: “Accurately monitoring and reporting the performance of wastewater assets will provide Yorkshire Water with vital intelligence as it continues to push on with its investment programme.
"We have worked with the utility provider for more than twelve years and welcome this opportunity to continue to assist them in meeting the needs of their customers while improving their infrastructure and data capture and analytics capabilities.”
Sweco is currently contracted on AMP6 frameworks with seven of the 12 UK water and sewerage companies, providing services across the full asset lifecycle.
