Work started this month on the design and construction will start on site in November and is set to finish in May 2021.

Murphy CEO John Murphy, said “We’re delighted to be working with Yorkshire Water on this important project.

“We are confident that using our ever-growing engineering expertise and working closely with them, we will deliver a solution which provides outstanding value for their customers.”

Yorkshire Water’s communications advisor Mark Allsop said: ‘This scheme supports our commitment to invest in renewable energy and benefit the environment as we look at ways of reducing carbon emissions.

The project will draw on Murphy’s self-delivery capabilities, including specialist ground engineering and plant and process engineering capabilities, to deliver the project.

Murphy’s water sector director Stuart Rothery said: “This is a great example of our strategy in action.

“Building on our strengths and in particular, the process engineering expertise we acquired in 2017, we’re now in a position to really generate value for our UK clients by offering an integrated in-house service for complex water and wastewater design and construction.”
