Pump and panel framework

Posted: Friday 18th September 2015

An engineering company in the South has been placed on the Environment Agency's approved National Pump and Panel Framework list.

The agreement means Southampton-based Trant Engineering can tender in connection with the replacement of a range of pumps and motor control centres (MCCs) at pumping stations across northern England and the rest of the country.

Such is the commitment to the environment, a number of pumps will need to be fish and eel friendly in order to meet new EU regulative standards.

Environment Agency pumping stations include ones at Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire, Cumbria and Lancashire, Yorkshire, Northumberland, Durham and Tees, with scope to extend nationally.

Tim Bullen, who heads up process work for Trant Engineering, said: "The Environment Agency rightly has exacting standards and we're proud to be on the framework following the evaluation process."

He added: "Underpinned by our environmental credentials, our professional project teams embrace the most up-to-date technology to produce efficient, innovative and integrated solutions.

"Trant Engineering's office at Altringcham [Greater Manchester], with more than 100 staff, is ideally placed to serve this national framework for assets in the Northern region.

"Our base is in an excellent location to provide an efficient operating delivery model for the Environment Agency, complementing our computer-aided design work in Southampton."

Trant Engineering won the national framework for replacement pumps and TSE, a division within the company, won the national framework for MCC panels.

TSE itself designs, manufactures, installs and commissions new MCCs, providing a one-stop 'shop' for companies involved in improving Britain's infrastructure.

Running for four years, the framework follows a rigorous evaluation process.

With 850 staff, Trant Engineering has provided high-quality services to the municipal and industrial water markets across the UK and beyond for more than 50 years.
