Yorkshire Water partners to pump £1billion back in to the region



Yorkshire Water is this week announcing that its service partners will deliver in the region of £1billion pounds worth of work as part of its planned investment programme across Yorkshire.

Eight Contract Partners and three Framework Consultants* have received an extension of their agreement for the next Asset Management Period (AMP) 2015-2020, set to future-proof the company's treatment works against extreme weather conditions, help protect the local environment and continue to guarantee a secure supply of drinking water.

Nevil Muncaster Director of Asset Delivery at Yorkshire Water said: “We are committed to ensuring that we give our customers the best possible service for the lowest possible price and our major investment plans for the next five years play a huge part in this. Our Contract Partners and Consultants take great pride in their service alongside Yorkshire Water and this news is testament to their strong performance.

“The next step is to review the AMP6 programme with our partners, optimising AMP6 investment so we are well-placed to deliver the best value asset solutions. We’re committed to working in a more integrated way to further boost collaboration and efficiency and are now in the best possible shape to plan ahead for AMP6.”
