Michael Cundy, managing director of Suttons Tankers said:

“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract with Yorkshire Water which demonstrates the divisional strategy of expanding into alternative sectors.

“We are looking forward to driving efficiencies for Yorkshire Water and contributing to their commitment to OFWAT.”
