Morgan Est, the infrastructure division of Morgan Sindall, has been awarded two water contracts through the AMP5 (Asset Management Period) programme, worth a total of £190m.
The firm has been retained as a capital delivery partner by Dwr Cymru (Welsh Water). Work on the programme will commence on 1 April 2010.
The five-year framework will involve design and build works for both clean and wastewater programmes throughout South Wales. The works follow on from the AMP4 programme, where Morgan Est delivered a £130m wastewater capital programme in South East Wales. The contractor is currently delivering Welsh Water’s Advanced Digestion programme valued at £75m.
Morgan Est has also been chosen, with joint venture partner Grontmij, by Yorkshire Water for its AMP5 programme. The five-year contract is worth around £60m to Morgan Est and work will commence next month.
The project includes improvement works to clean and waste water treatment works including civil, process, mechanical and electrical engineering works from investigation and feasibility to commissioning and handover. This framework award further enhances Morgan Est’s relationship with Yorkshire Water, which has been developed through the last two AMPs.
Paul Smith, chief executive of Morgan Sindall, said: “The appointments underlines Morgan Est’s strength and expertise as one of the country’s leading water and infrastructure specialists.”
