Scottish Water selects Rotork for new valve actuation framework contract

Following a formal tender process, water utility Scottish Water has awarded the framework agreement for new valve actuators to Rotork Controls.

The new six-year agreement, following the expiration of Scottish Water’s previous supply contract, appoints Rotork as the sole supplier of new actuators to Scottish Water and its business partners, valvemakers, and appointed contractors for the AMP 6 cycle.

The framework complements an existing agreement that provides servicing and spares for the several thousand Rotork actuators installed throughout the Scottish mainland and islands.

The ongoing agreement encompasses on-site and workshop support as well as mechanical and electrical capabilities for system integration into client infrastructure.

Another framework agreement was awarded to Auma Actuators for the maintenance and repair of the company's already installed actuators.

Scottish Water manages over £58 billion (€76bn) of assets to provide 2.5 million customers with water and effluent treatment services.

Around £10 billion of these assets are treatment works and pumping stations, of which about 50% have been built in the last 20 years.
