GPS Secures £1m Thames Water Contracts

5 October 2016

GPS PE pipe

We have won two new contracts to supply a range of our PE pipe systems to Thames Water for major AMP6 schemes.

Worth £1 million, the contracts will see our PE pipe and fittings supplied to both the utility’s New Malden and Axford schemes.

The New Malden scheme is a £5.5 million project to upgrade 200 year old water mains to reduce the risk of leaks and bursts, minimising interruptions to water supply for customers. The installation will be completed using slip lining techniques, which will see 1.8km of 710mm GPS PE pipe fit into the existing pipe network, reducing the need to dig large trenches, minimising impact on the surrounding environment.

We will also be supplying the next phase of the £25 million Axford scheme, a major project to build an 18.2km pipeline to reduce the amount of water abstracted from the River Kennet. Having successfully provided a range of PE pipe and fittings to Phase One, we will now be providing 560mm Protecta-Line barrier pipe for installation under an industrial plant, in addition to 3.6km of standard 560mm PE pipe, for the second phase of the development.

Commenting on the contract wins, Paul Russell, our regional sales manager, said: “These are two fantastic wins for us and testament to the successful projects we have delivered for Thames Water over the last decade.

“We always look to offer an added value service to our customers and the fact that we provide a complete solution from initial specification advice, through to product training and on-site technical support made Thames Water turn to us once again. We look forward to working with Thames Water, and its wider supply chain, to effectively deliver these two schemes.”
