South West Water News Update: Partnership with H50 Extended
South West Water news update: the water supply company have announced that they will be extending their consultant and contractor partnership with H50.
Following a successful relationship so far, South West Water have made the decision to extend the contract they have with five consultancy and contractor companies. The extension is initially just for two years as South West Water look to maintain the same terms until 2016/17.
“The move will allow a smooth transition through to AM6 from 2015 onwards, when the water company hopes to spend £850m.
The alliance works across South West Water’s operating area in Cornwall, Devon and parts of Somerset and Dorset to upgrade and replace aging water assets, including treatment works, sewers and storm water pipes.
Projects currently being carried out by the alliance include a £3.5m upgrade to sewers and water overflow systems in the heart of Truro; an £18m programme of works to ensure the continued cleanliness of some of Britain’s most popular beaches; and night works in North Devon timed to avoid disruption to the annual book festival and resulting tourist trade.
The alliance is presently worth around £22m a year to Balfour Beatty alone.
Colin Kelly, Managing Director, Balfour Beatty – Gas & Water, said: ‘Our teams have been carrying out some very technically challenging projects in this area, where the important tourist trade and beautiful natural surroundings mean finding innovative methods to minimise disruption and the impact of operations is especially important.’”
As South West Water look to develop their company further over the coming months, collaborating with these five contractors will help to make sure they offer the best service possible in their respective region in the UK.
With utilities companies facing problems with regards to the cost of the services they offer and customers stuck in a catch 22 situation where they can’t survive without utilities but unwilling to spend the majority of their salaries on necessities. There is a general onus that the powers that be – the government and the companies combined most likely – are doing what they can to drain customers of their money.
If you find you need to speak with your utility supply company, South West Water for example, you can use the contact information listed on Customer Services Contact. The number that is listed on there will connect you straight through the South West Water customer services department without any hassle. The customer service advisors will then be able to help with your enquiry, whatever it is.
