Scottish Water has announced the appointment of the Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA), a joint venture formed by Morrison Utility Services and AECOM, as its preferred bidder to support the delivery of the water infrastructure element of its future Quality & Standards IV (Q&S IV) Capital Investment Programme for the regulatory period 2015 to 2021.
This six year contract is valued at approximately £360m. It is intended that an early start contract will be in place to assist the transition from the current programme into the next regulatory period and there is a potential extension for an additional six years from 2021.
The CWA’s scope of work will include programme management, together with the design and construction of works associated with the water network across the whole of Scotland. This includes new assets, renewals, modifications, maintenance and refurbishment of water networks and pumping stations.
It has been recognised that CWA’s strong customer focus, asset optimisation skills and efficient delivery model will support Scottish Water in achieving high levels of customer satisfaction.
Geoff Aitkenhead, Director of Asset Management, Scottish Water said: “We look forward to working with our new alliance partners to build on the investment work of the last 12 years. They will help us deliver the next stage of our continuing investment in water and waste water infrastructure. This will deliver real benefits and improve service for communities while supporting the economy and jobs across Scotland.”
Charles Morrison, Chief Executive, Morrison Utility Services, comments: “We are delighted that the Caledonia Water Alliance has been chosen as preferred bidder by Scottish Water to support the delivery of the water infrastructure element of its capital investment programme. This joint venture with AECOM will provide Scottish Water with a fully integrated business model which is ideally structured to support Scottish Water’s relentless focus on driving up standards in safety, customer service, efficiency and innovation.”
Graham Howells, Managing Director of AECOM’s water practice in EMEA, comments: “We are looking forward to supporting Scottish Water and contributing to the successful delivery of its capital investment programme. This is another major appointment for our water business in the UK and further underpins our mission to be the leader in the market. We have an excellent track record of working with Morrison Utility Services and are confident that together we can set a new benchmark in market-leading solutions for Scottish Water.”
