AMP 6 contract award for Imtech as part of joint venture

Posted: Thursday 14th August 2014

Following United Utilities’ official announcement of its partners for the next capital delivery period (2015 – 2020), engineering contractor, Imtech Water, Waste and Energy (Imtech) is celebrating its successful selection. Imtech, as part of a joint venture with civils contractor, Laing O’Rourke and consultants, Atkins, will provide construction delivery for the water company.

United Utilities provides water and sewage services to around seven million people in North West England. The contract for the joint venture between Imtech, Laing O’Rourke and Atkins, which has been named LiMA, is initially for five years, but could be extended until 2025.

As one of four Construction Delivery Partners for United Utilities, LiMA will deliver projects on the water and wastewater infrastructure and non-infrastructure, including the design and build of major construction projects. The total value of the contract is dependent on the outcome of United Utilities’ Price Review Submission, which will be announced towards the end of 2014.

Bruno Speed, managing director at Imtech commented: “This weeks’ welcome announcement follows an exacting selection process, which provided us time to fully understand the culture and needs of United Utilities and its customers. We are looking forward to working with United Utilities to help it help achieve its objectives over the next five years.”

Steven Fraser, United Utilities managing director, commented: “Our announcement is the result of a lengthy, robust and rigorous selection process and we’re confident that these are the right partners to help deliver real improvements for our customers and the environment during AMP6 and beyond.”
