The TES-CAW JV has been selected as a Partner to N.I. Water to support the delivery of its £1.2bn Capital Investment Programme through the Major Project Partnering Framework (MPPF). The launch event recently took place at the Dunsilly Hotel, marking the kick-off of the new framework, which will run for an initial four-year period, with the option to extend for a further four years. The MPPF will play a very significant role in reversing the under-investment in Northern Ireland’s water and wastewater infrastructure, which continues to impact negatively on the local economy and environment.
Tyrone based TES and Dublin based Celtic Anglian Water (CAW), a wholly owned subsidiary of Anglian Water Group, have a long-standing working partnership and proven track record of successfully delivering innovative water and wastewater treatment solutions throughout the UK and Ireland. As an integral part of a new NIW Integrated Framework Team, consisting of the best innovative providers within the construction supply chain locally, nationally, and internationally, the TES-CAW JV will participate in a project investment programme focussed on delivering major upgrades to water and wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and network mains whilst at the same time ensuring that all projects are successfully delivered in a safe, sustainable and economically advantageous manner.
The unique Framework model is one of the first of its kind to be rolled out in Northern Ireland and represents a move towards integrative partnering and collaboration. The aim is to build upon the strengths of each contractor, whilst fostering collaboration, embracing innovation and cutting-edge technologies to provide NI Water and its customers with world class, industry leading solutions.
The new MPP Framework will see the delivery of multiple projects with a value in excess of £10m. The TES-CAW JV has been appointed to provide their specialist expertise in Process Engineering, MEICA Design and Construction having successfully delivered numerous major water and wastewater treatment projects in the past.
TES-CAW JV Framework Manager Mark Geddis commented; “We are delighted to be appointed to NI Water’s MPP Framework. We are wholly committed to collaboration, innovation, and integration; we have seen first-hand in our experience throughout the UK and Ireland that the water industry can be revolutionised by adopting such an approach to delivery”, Geddis added “we look forward to applying our expertise for the greater good of the water and wastewater sector in Northern Ireland.”
