Public services provider Amey has obtained a three-year contract extension worth £100 million to carry out reactive and proactive maintenance work across Yorkshire Water’s sewer network.
The contract, which begins in April 2020, forms part of Yorkshire Water’s Waste Water Services Agreement. Works, which first started in September 2015, involve reactive sewer repairs, ironwork replacement, preventative intervention cleansing, and repairs related to flooding and pollution.
Yorkshire Water manages clean and wastewater collection and distribution for more than five million people. This contract falls within the AMP 7 spending period, which presents new performance measures for the water provider.
Neil Cooney, Amey Utilities – Yorkshire Water account director, said: “Amey brings a wealth of innovative operational solutions and collaborative working practices, which will help us deliver against the client’s ambitious targets. This will result in a successful contract for both Yorkshire Water and the end user.”
Nicola Shirley, Yorkshire Water operational contract manager, said: “We have some challenging performance targets for AMP7 and, working with Amey, we will positively contribute to the performance commitments we have for sewage flooding and pollution.”
