Severn Trent has confirmed the latest round of winning contractors under its £2bn AMP7 water construction spending round.

Winners of Lot 3 have been confirmed as:

  • Barhale limited & Doosan Enpure Limited
  • Coffey Construction Limited
  • Eric Wright Water Limited
  • FLI Water and Glaswell & Last
  • J.N. Bentley Limited
  • Kier Integrated Services limited

Severn Trent has changed the way it will carry out the work between 2020 and 2025.

The water giant will bring design work in-house, including the creation of a new specialist design team, and will work with more construction contractors than previously.

Among the latest winners are the Barhale/Doosan Enpure joint venture which also won a place on Lot 2.

Dave Shaw, Regional Director of Barhale, said: “By combining forces, we felt that Barhale and Doosan Enpure brought together a raft of complementary skills.

“It gives us outstanding capability across the requirements of AMP7. We are very excited to have been appointed to two lots.

“We are now keen to start work, tackling what will undoubtedly be some big challenges and building on the existing relationship with Severn Trent developed in the delivery of strategic projects in its AMP6 programme.”

Details of the earlier lot winners were confirmed in March.

Helen Miles, Capital Delivery and Commercial Director, at Severn Trent, said: “Getting fast-track status from Ofwat means that we’ve been able to make a really early start on our planning for AMP7.

“We now working to  define the key projects we need to deliver for our customers, which we can do alongside our new construction partners.

“We are delighted we now have our partners in place for lots 1, 2 and 3. This remains a really exciting time for us as we look at new, more efficient ways to invest for the future to make our services even better.”
