Water Quality Engineers Panton McLeod have succeeded in winning a critical refurbishment framework agreement with South West Waterâ€™s capital delivery partners H5O.
The firm, who have a number of regional bases in the UK, already hold 5 similar frameworks and are delighted to add such a high profile client to their existing workload.
With other existing framework clients including Scottish Water, Anglian Water, Welsh Water, Severn Trent and United Utilities, Panton McLeod now work on a regular basis from Landâ€™s End to John Oâ€™Groats and from Anglesey to Lowestoft. In addition to their work at the extremities of the mainland they also support the Scottish Islands such as the Orkneys, Shetland and Hebrides.
Panton McLeod Business Development Director Paul Henderson said: â€œFor 20 years Panton McLeod have been supporting the UK Water Industry and this framework award is the next step forward in strengthening our UK coverage. We hope to bring a number of new services to the market in 2014 and as framework partners we fully intend to share these developments with key clients such as South West Water.â€
â€œFor the next two years we will be supporting H5O to deliver refurbishment projects to key storage assets such as service reservoirs. Keeping these up to standard is critical for maintaining the highest quality water throughout Cornwall, Devon and also into Dorset and Somerset.â€
Projects are expected to commence within the next 3 months and will include a variety of disciplines. This refurbishment contract is in addition to existing arrangements where Panton McLeod supports South West Water with the inspection and cleaning of critical water storage tanks using underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) or robots.
Head of Operations Sandy Keir added: â€œThis contract is a great opportunity for Panton McLeod. Over the past 5 years we have built some great relationships with South West Water. We are now looking forward to working with them to deliver these additional services.â€
Steve Thompson, H50 Procurement Manager, added: â€œWe are very dependent on a high-quality supply chain as we strive to provide the highest quality water to our customers. During this procurement process we believe we have strengthened that supply chain with the addition of Panton McLeod and we look forward to working with them for the duration of the framework period.â€
