Scottish Water is in the process of finalising its supply chain for SR15 with the award of a £12 million Precast materials framework to the UK’s largest civil engineering distributor Keyline.

The contract will run for a six year period and involves the supply of precast civils and drainage materials across Scotland including the Highlands and Islands.

The award sees Keyline become the single source supplier to Scottish Water, their Alliance partners and sub contractors for all precast materials including Jacking pipes, Segmental Shaft & Tunnel linings, Caisson rings, CSO’s, Box culverts and Troughing alongside standard open cut drainage pipe and manholes rings.

Gail Marshall, Scottish Water Procurement Category Manager said “We had a large and varied mix of interested parties including distributors and manufacturers. Following an extensive procurement process we identified that Keyline had the best overall submission, which allows Scottish Water to deliver key infrastructure in an economical, quality and efficient way”.

Gary Donnelly, Business Development Manager (Scotland) for Keyline Utilities commented, “ I am delighted and excited to be part of the SR15 programme. We are prepared for the challenges ahead and with the support of our robust supply chain we are focused on driving up standards in safety, efficiency, quality and innovation”.

The Precast Framework is part of £224m + worth of contracts put out to tender for SR15 including £150 million contract from its rural delivery programme, a £80 million contract for civils materials and a £72 million contract for the supply of PE pipes and fittings.

Gareth Twohey, Head of Utilities for Keyline commented “We are looking forward to continuing the successful relationship with Scottish Water and their delivery partners, which was built up over the past 5 years of SR10”.

Twohey added “Alongside the delivery of the £2million Chelmsford Effluent pipeline for Essex & Suffolk, we are establishing a growing reputation for delivering large infrastructure projects with innovative solutions and ensuring value for money for customers”.
