Yorkshire Water award 5 year £100 million marine framework contract

We have recently signed a marine framework contract worth up to £100 million over the next five years. The four framework partners include ABCO Marine, Farrans Construction, Van Oord and Ward & Burke.

Between 2010 and 2015 we spent £110 million to help create some of the cleanest beaches and bathing waters in Europe. By working in partnership with other organisations we aim to secure and maintain the highest possible water quality standard at Yorkshire’s designated bathing beaches.

Over the next five years the four partners will undertake all of our marine civil engineering work. They will install new sea outfall pipes, carry out site investigations and planned maintenance to improve existing outfall assets. This type of work requires specialist marine plant and work vessels and commercial divers are often necessary.

The first of these framework projects is worth £7million and involves replacing the long sea outfall at Wheatcroft in Scarborough which discharges consented waste water from the washing and processing of potatoes into the sea at Cornelian Bay. Van Oord started construction on this 2.5km pipeline early this month (April).

Nevil Muncaster, Director of Asset Management said, ‘This framework has been designed to build on the work we’ve carried out over the last five years to improve Yorkshire’s bathing waters. We are confident our partners will deliver the best possible solutions for us and the water environment, at the best price with the highest levels of safety.’

Maurits den Broeder, Managing Director for Van Oord UK Ltd, said, ‘'We are delighted that Yorkshire Water has selected Van Oord onto their framework and we look forward to working together with a strong team of marine professionals to improve water quality on the Yorkshire coast”.
