Morrison Utility Services secures eight year leak detection services contract with thames water

Posted: Thursday 28th March 2019

Morrison Utility Services has been awarded a new eight-year leak detection services framework agreement with Thames Water.

Leakage detection is a high-profile category for Thames Water and includes the proactive detection of non-visible leaks, specialised consulting and additional projects relating to leakage detection and reduction in unaccounted-for water.

Morrison Utility Services, the UK’s largest dedicated utility service provider and a part of M Group Services, will cover leak detection activity for specific district metered areas (DMAs) requiring additional intervention on a project or campaign basis. The agreement will cover the entire Thames Water region, with work packages focusing on areas where unaccounted-for water is apparent but traditional detection methods have been exhausted.

Thames Water’s Lawrence Gosden, said: “Reducing leakage is a top priority for the company and our customers, so it’s vital we have the very best people working on it. Our partners will be challenged to be as innovative as possible to find leaks so we can get them fixed, especially those that are hidden underground and not visible from the surface. We are focused on ensuring our network is fit to serve our customers now and into the future, and I’m confident investment on this scale will help us to achieve our ambitious targets.”

Morrison Utility Services Contract Director Lawrence Summers commented: “Thames Water is looking to implement a step change in current performance to meet its leakage target and commitments.

“This agreement will see our leakage specialists delivering innovative detection services and solutions to target historically problematic DMAs, using big data and key analytics to provide insight into leakage issues and undertaking targeted asset health checks and mapping.

“Reducing leakage levels will limit Thames Water’s impact on the environment and we look forward to working with our client in what is a hugely important area of its operations.”
