Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, has been appointed onto Anglian Water's over £350 million new Strategic Pipeline Alliance.
Under the eight-year contract, as part of the alliance, Costain will provide a range of integrated services including strategic programme management, digital technology expertise and complex programme delivery for the supply-side strategy of our client's Water Resources Management Plan.
Costain's expertise in digital technology and complex programme delivery will enable the efficient delivery of Anglian Water's physical assets which include an ambitious plan to create a series of up to 500km of interconnecting pipelines and associated infrastructure to move water from areas of surplus in Lincolnshire down to the drier south and east of the region. In addition, our digital technology teams will enable the delivery of a digital twin of the physical assets, allowing Anglian Water to optimise its management of the water network for more efficient operations and maintenance.
Alex Vaughan, CEO of Costain, commented: "By bringing together and integrating our programme management consultancy, digital twin expertise and complex programme delivery capabilities, Costain, as part of this newly formed alliance, will help Anglian Water as it strategically addresses the challenges it faces in this dry region. Once complete, the contract will see new systems and assets, within a digital framework working together with existing networks to provide Anglian Water greater flexibility in how it manages water supply and growing demand."
Anglian Water is the largest geographic water and wastewater company in England and Wales, transporting water across some 27,500 square kilometres in a region facing future water scarcity resulting from a changing climate and growing population.
The alliance is formed of Costain, Jacobs, Mott McDonald Bentley and Farrans, who will work together to support Anglian Water in delivering sustainable growth in their region, increase the resilience of its network, and create greater operational flexibility to meet the changing needs and expectations of its customers.
This framework contract win follows the news last week that Costain had been appointed to Yorkshire Water's Technical Services Framework and adds to the future pipeline of work for the Group's water sector.
