To be built on a greenfield site near Newton-on-Trent in Lincolnshire, the new works will use an innovative combination of processes that will enable water from the River Trent to be treated at a downstream location for the first time. The scheme includes a large raw water reservoir and more than 12km of pipelines.
Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted to secure this additional business from an existing framework client. It builds on our track record in delivering water infrastructure projects. Galliford Try is one of the UK's leading infrastructure contractors to the water industry, working under five-year asset management programmes as well as on bespoke projects for seven of the country's major water utility businesses."
