Turner & Townsend appointed to Welsh Water AMP6 programme

Turner & Townsend has been awarded a lead cost management contract to support Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s (DCWW) AMP6 investment plans. The consultancy will provide commercial and project management services for DCWW's £1.7 billion programme of investment to improve customer service, environmental performance and essential infrastructure.

DCWW supplies drinking water and wastewater services to most of Wales, Herefordshire and parts of Deeside. According to Turner & Townsend, the consultancy will use best practice identified through experience gained from working with other major UK water companies to help DCWW’s drive to meet its AMP6 business plan while aiming to exceed performance targets.

Turner & Townsend's UK managing director for infrastructure, Patricia Moore, said: “We’re thrilled to be provided with this opportunity to expand our relationship with DCWW and drive innovation in the face of increased regulation and efficiency constraints.

“There is now increased pressure on the standards and operating costs of both public and private sector water companies and this demands well-planned and closely-managed commercial and operational programmes. This contract will allow us to help DCWW to achieve its objective of delivering high quality water and wastewater services.”

DCWW director of capital delivery, Martin Hennessey, added: “Turner & Townsend will provide independent commercial, project and contract management resources to underpin our capital delivery governance and audit processes and to support the efficient delivery of the plan. Turner & Townsend has extensive water industry experience in relation to capital programme delivery and we look forward to working with the team over the coming years.”
