Interserve has been awarded a place on two frameworks with Yorkshire Water, which have a combined value £1bn
The two Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Automation (MEICA) Frameworks form part of Yorkshire Water’s ongoing investment in assets and infrastructure to support its 5.2 million customers
The Complex MEICA Framework, worth £750m, involves a variety of construction and refurbishment works associated with assets within Yorkshire Water’s operational treatment sites. The framework will run for an initial five years with a further 36 months extension option.
The Minor MEICA Framework, worth £300m, will include a range of work on operational treatment site, collection or distribution assets including process treatment and water retaining structures.
Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire, supplying 1.2 billion litres of drinking water each day and collects, treats and disposes of about 1bn litres of waste water safely back into the environment.
These contract wins add to Interserve Construction’s recent success in being included on Yorkshire Water’s Complex and Minor Civil Frameworks. The combined value of the three frameworks is over £2bn.
Chris Tyerman, infrastructure managing director at Interserve Construction, said: “Having worked with Yorkshire Water for a number of years on previous frameworks this is another fantastic result for our water business.
“Interserve Construction works for a range of utility companies in the UK and these contract wins further demonstrate our strong credibility in regulated industries and our successful strategy in accumulating framework partnerships.
“The team will offer a full range of integrated services to continue to deliver innovative solutions to Yorkshire Water to support them in the delivery outstanding service to their customers whilst adding value to the communities and environment they operate in.
“This exciting role also broadens Interserve’s presence in the north of England where we already work with Northumbrian Water Group.”
Other customers in the UK water sector include Severn Trent Water, Wessex Water, South West Water, United Utilities and Thames Water.
Yorkshire Water’s head of programme delivery, Mark Baker, commented: “This is the second phase of our procurement process and we would like to welcome our MEICA Partners to support our ambitions and challenges into AMP7. The MEICA Framework Partners will join our Civils Partners and Yorkshire Water in developing our Enterprise Delivery Model.
