IWJS Wins New Contract

IWJS lands £3 million contract with Amey servicing Yorkshire Water



Leading national waste water management company, Industrial Water Jetting Systems Limited, has won a major contract with national multi services provider Amey plc to serve their client, Yorkshire Water. The contract will cover both reactive and planned desilting and CCTV surveys of Yorkshire Water’s Southern drainage network.  The works will also encompass various specialist works including robotic cutting, sewer rehabilitation and patch repairs.

The winning value of the £3 million contract is a significant success for IWJS. The contract will create work for potentially 50 new jobs within IWJS as the contract develops. In response to winning the contract, Christopher Stewart, Managing Director, at IWJS Ltd said:

“Our winning this major contract for our business, speaks volumes on how we prize fostering an effective working relationship with clients that’s built on trust and effective delivery. To do so means we go the extra mile to ensure that we don’t just simply meet their requirements, but endeavour to exceed them wherever possible.”

The contract was won against tough national competition and gained on the basis of the excellent reputation that IWJS has built with Amey; in successfully servicing their other major Northern water company client, United Utilities. This relationship has earned IWJS the distinction of ‘Tier One’ supplier status, due to their excellent record in health and safety, contract performance, rapid response and investment in the right equipment.

Key to delivering the contract successfully will be IWJS’s ability to respond to the client’s needs in both a planned and reactive way should this be necessary. Paramount is IWJS’s capacity to deploy additional specialist plant in rapid response to wet weather events, whilst still maintaining the same high standards of service delivery. This requires the logistic capability to respond, meet programmes of work, develop new service streams and meet commercial pressures.

Inherent within the ethos of IWJS is innovation, helping to provide clients with enhanced efficiency, to meet their evolving requirements and anticipate potential environmental issues; often requiring a rapid and effective response.

The award of the contract has the potential to open up opportunities in servicing Waste water Treatment Works (WwTW), major de-silt programmes, civil engineering and sewer rehabilitation; all well within the remit of IWJS’s capabilities and reach.

IWJS by working closely for Amey, will help support Yorkshire Water in protecting homes from sewer flooding and pollution incidents. The repair and maintenance work will improve response times when dealing with a customer issue for Yorkshire Water, which has around 55,000km of sewerage pipes across the county.
