Kier has been selected as preferred bidder for two new long term contracts worth up to £130M under Anglian Water’s AMP6 programme, it was announced today.
Both contracts start in 2015 and are expected to run for 15 years.
Kier is one of three contractors that will deliver Anglian Water’s Integrated Operational Solutions (IOS), which will include work on appraisal and feasibility studies, preliminary and detailed design, construction and installation of components. This is worth approximately £70M over five years, with an extension of a possible ten years, and will start in April 2015.
The IOS contract will also cover asset refurbishment, demolition, dismantling and decommissioning, as well as maintenance of the corporate asset and cost data for both water and water recycling assets.
Kier has also been chosen together with Clancy Docwra to deliver Anglian Water’s AMP6 Integrated Metering and Developer Services contract, valued at up to £12M a year. This will cover the whole Anglian Water region for both Metering and Developer Services and is expected to be formally awarded in the summer, with focus over the coming three months on initiative development, business planning and work allocation.
Kier says its bid focus was on a need to increase efficiency and extend asset life to meet OFWAT objectives and to support Anglian Water’s AMP6 business plan.
Kier Group finance director Haydn Mursell said: “We look forward to working with Anglian Water to tackle the ever more challenging regulatory requirements they face. Through our partnership experience, we will deliver these services effectively and efficiently, working as one fully integrated organisation, and collaborating with them and the partner service providers to deliver the best possible service to customers.”
