Morrison Utility Services repair and maintenance contract extended in £250m deal

Yorkshire Water have awarded a three-year contract extension to Batley-based Morrison Utility Services (MUS) worth £250m to help carry out essential maintenance and repair work to our 31,000 kilometre clean water network.

The contract involves MUS acting as the sole service provider for Yorkshire Water repairs of water mains across the region as well as installing water meters and carrying our street works. This will involve attending over 100,000 call outs per annum.

MUS, whose northern office is located in Batley, has hundreds of technicians employed to deliver these essential services for Yorkshire Water.

David Stevenson, Head of Water Distribution at Yorkshire Water said: “We are very pleased to award a three year extension of our Water Service Agreement contract to Morrison Utility Services. This is testament to the strength of our relationship with MUS and our trust in their ability to deliver the best possible service for our customers at the best price with the highest levels of safety.”

The three-year contract extension has been awarded to MUS two years ahead of schedule, bringing the total remaining duration to five years.

Charles Morrison, Chief Executive, Morrison Utility Services, comments: “We are delighted to have been awarded this three year contract extension as sole partner for Yorkshire Water’s Water Service Agreement contract. We look forward to building upon the collaborative working relationship that we share with our client and our aim now is to continue to develop safe, cost-efficient and innovative ways of working that will deliver a positive customer experience across Yorkshire Water’s operational territory.”
