Farrans team tipped for water project


AN EARTH Tech/Farrans joint venture is favourite to take an £18 million utility scheme in Northern Ireland.

Insiders say consultant Babtie has recommended the team's bid for the new water treatment works at Fofanny in County Down under the Northern Irish Water Service framework.

The joint venture is understood to have seen off opposition from Biwater/Graham and Paterson Candy/DawsonWAM/ Gleeson for the job.

NIWS is expected to award the two-year deal formally in May. The water service will decommission the 40-year-old Fofannybane water treatment works in 2005 when the new plant begins operation.
