Morrison Water Services secures infrastructure deal with Scottish Water
capital investment infrastructure programmes.
The initial contract term for the Scottish Water ‘Delivery Vehicle 2’ (DV2) framework is six years and includes the option to extend by a further six years. The DV2 framework was tendered across four Lots, with Morrison Water Services appointed to Lot 4 – Capital Investment for Mechanical Electrical Instrumentation Control and Automation (MEICA).
The scope of activity will include mechanical and electrical (M&E), M&E process interface and specialist instrumentation control and automation services.
Typical examples of the projects to be delivered via the framework will include the repair and maintenance of process plant, control panel, pumping station and control system solutions.
Morrison Water Services will work closely with its sister M Group Services business, ID Systems, to deliver the primarily planned activity covering capital investment projects of up to £2 million (€2.33 million) in value within both water and wastewater environments.
IDS, acquired in 2020 to strengthen M Group Services’ MEICA offering, will deliver a substantial part of the programme, providing expertise, support and resources in design, planning, management and delivery.
It is anticipated that Morrison Water Services and IDS will primarily deliver projects in the southern area of Scotland, with annual investment estimated to increase to over £40 million (€47 million) per annum.
Mark Dickson, Scottish Water’s Director of Capital Investment, said: “This represents a significant milestone in the delivery of our service and investment activity. The companies and joint ventures appointed to carry out this work on behalf of Scottish Water will play a vital role in ensuring customers have the most resilient network which brings them water.”
Douglas Millican, Scottish Water’s CEO, added: “We set out our strategic
ambitions for the future of the country’s water and waste water services in the face of unprecedented challenges from climate change and aging infrastructure in February 2020.”
