GPS PE Pipe Systems has been awarded a framework contract by Scotia Gas Networks (SGN) following a competitive selection process.

The PE pipe specialist has been supplying SGN with gas PE electrofusion fittings for more than five years. The new contract will see GPS supply all SGN’s PE gas pipe and fittings requirements for the south of England and west of Scotland from April 2012. The company was awarded the supply deal against competitive bids from other major British and European manufacturers following an extensive tender process during which all potentially available products were rigorously assessed through a combination of field trials and independent third party analysis.

Comments GPS Head of Gas, Noel Hughes: “This contract award reinforces GPS’s position as a leading supplier of gas pipes and fittings in the UK, demonstrating our proven reliability of supply and product performance, throughout our five year relationship with SGN. Our ability to deliver and the security of supply we offer is business critical to our utilities customers and, once again, our clear focus on working in partnership has helped us to win a high profile and much coveted contract.”

SGN’s Martin Rich said: “This is a very important contract for us. Every year we invest around £250 million in our gas networks to ensure a safe and secure gas supply for all our 5.8 million customers. Having the right quality product which is fit for purpose is key to this activity and we are delighted to be extending our relationship with GPS.’’

The new contract will see GPS supply gas PE80 piping in sizes ranging from 20mm to 560mm, along with the associated range of gas fittings.
