United Utilities returns to Rotork for new actuation framework agreement

Posted: Thursday 31st May 2012

Flow control engineering group Rotork is pleased to announce the award of the new framework agreement for the supply of valve actuators to United Utilities, the UK’s largest listed water company.
Serving a population of seven million, United Utilities operates 184 reservoirs, more than 700 water and sewage treatment plants and 170,000 kilometres of pipework and sewers in an area bounded by the English Midlands, the Irish Sea, the Scottish Borders, the Pennines and the Peak District.

After a period with another electric actuator manufacturer the move to Rotork follows the revision of the United Utilities specification for valve actuators to include a double-sealed and non-intrusive actuator enclosure. These features, which are recognised by United Utilities as essential for long term environmental resistance, reliable performance and low maintenance, are standard design features of Rotork’s IQ and IQT intelligent electric valve actuator ranges. In addition to contributing to efficient plant operation, they also help to reduce the overall cost of ownership.
