Bidders for £3bn Thames Water AMP6 alliance – Full list

Aaron Morby 11 years ago

Thames Water has named bidders in the race to play a star role in its new top tier alliance to deliver its £3bn capital spending programme from 2015-2020.

Procurement bosses plan to select several consortia of contractors, a programme manager and technology and innovation provider to work with Thames Water to steer investment decisions for AMP6.

Contractors that do not make the Top Tier Alliance will be able to bid for work packages at a later stage, under separate tender competitions.

Details have yet to be finalised but the plan is to form an alliance board of seven members. One member will be from Thames Water, joined by four contractors, one consultant programme manager and a seat for the innovation and technology partner.

Selected partners in the early contractor engagement’ alliance will be revealed in the Spring.

Lawrence Gosden, capital delivery director for Thames Water, said: “We need to make significant investment in our water and wastewater networks over the next 10 years, and in order to do that efficiently and sustainably we need to completely transform the way we deliver our investment programmes.

“Following extensive feedback from and discussion with many members of the supply chain and industry bodies, we believe that moving to an alliance model is what will enable us to work together in a way that delivers the very best value for our customers over the long term.

“By assembling the best team we will give ourselves the best chance of success, so our focus is on business alignment, quality and value.”

Under Thames Water’s new delivery model, potential suppliers will have the opportunity to gain up to 12 years of work if they align effectively with the alliance’s objectives.

The working principles of the company’s AMP6 alliance represent a big change from past delivery models.

They include collaborative joint team working with an integrated supply chain to make use of the industry’s very best experience and expertise.

Boosting safety, efficiency and service for customers by exploiting and developing all the available innovative approaches, materials and equipment through early planning and involvement.

And a new set of criteria focused on a long-term view, designing and delivering solutions that provide value for money for customers both now and in future.
