Amey, one of the UK’s leading utilities and public service providers, has been awarded a contract by Welsh Water to deliver water services in South Wales.

The contract will commence in October 2013, running for up to six years and is valued over £18m per annum.

It will see Amey take on responsibility for repairing and maintaining around 20,000km of clean water pipes, as well as meter installation and new connections, in an area stretching as far west as Pembrokeshire, north to Ceredigion, east to Herefordshire, and south to Glamorgan. The award of the contract follows Amey being appointed as emergency contractor for Welsh Water in May 2013 for a period of five months when the previous contractor went into administration.

Mel Ewell, Amey’s Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted that Welsh Water has appointed Amey to deliver its services in South Wales. We look forward to bringing our expertise in this industry to the area and to supporting Welsh Water in delivering essential water services to local communities.

“The award is testament to the hard work of 300 employees, who joined us earlier in the year when were appointed as an emergency contractor. Their continued delivery of high quality services has enabled us to develop our partnership with Welsh Water and we remain focused on providing an excellent service to the public who use their water facilities.”
