Four-year partnership to deliver improvement models to start in December.

Three Valleys Water has named Mace as its preferred bidder for a contract to help it upgrade its water supply network.

The four year partnership is set to start in early December and will see Mace deliver models to show Three Valleys which areas of the water supply system most need improving.

Mace is supported by water engineering consultant Faber Maunsell and will build on the strong asset management team that Three Valleys already has.

“This is a very positive step forward,” said Peter Darby, managing director of Three Valleys Water. “We have considered our options very carefully and are convinced that this approach will build on our future as one of the leading water companies.”

The value of the contract is not yet available.
