May Gurney has won two new long-term framework contracts with Wessex Water, with a combined value of up to £65 million.
Beginning in April 2010, the contracts under the AMP5 programme cover the whole Wessex Water region for an initial period of five years, plus possible extensions.
The strategic grid framework contract, valued at up to £40 million over the first five years, covers the reinforcement of Wessex Water’s strategic supply mains system including pumping stations and large pipelines.
The network framework contract, valued at up to £25 million over the first five years, includes mechanical and electrical activities associated with asset upgrade, maintenance and new build at water treatment and waste water treatment facilities.
May Gurney chief executive Philip Fellowes-Prynne said: “We are delighted to have been awarded two new long-term contracts for Wessex Water, which further consolidates May Gurney’s position as a leading provider of essential support services to the water industry.
“We were chosen because of our proven track record of developing successful long-term partnerships to deliver great performance, the technical expertise of our M&E teams and our industry leadership on environmental and waste management issues.”
More than 95 per cent of May Gurney’s business is from long-term contracts in the public and regulated sectors. The firm also has a £1.4 billion forward order book.
