Anglian Water has confirmed the continuation of its @one Alliance for the upcoming AMP8 period for 2025 to 2030 with £2.6bn earmarked for investment.

Anglian Water is retaining all its existing @one Alliance partners – Balfour Beatty, Barhale, Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB), MWH Treatment, Skanska and SWECO – alongside new addition Binnies.

The @one Alliance is set to deliver a record £2.6bn of the water company’s overall investment in AMP8, with much of this work specifically targeted at protecting and enhancing the East of England’s natural environment and providing resilience to climate change.

This investment portfolio forms part of Anglian Water’s wider, record £9 billion proposed plans for AMP8, which will see a huge programme of much-needed investment across the East of England between 2025 and 2030.

Anglian Water was an early adopter within the sector to establish an alliancing model to deliver its capital programmes across the East of England. Since the @one Alliance’s inauguration in 2005, the company’s approach has been held up as an exemplar as part of the Government’s Construction Playbook.

Jason Tucker, Director of Strategic Delivery and Commercial Assurance for Anglian Water, said: “The scale of investment to enhance our environment and to secure water supplies for future generations is massive and I’m delighted that our long-standing and successful @one Alliance will continue to help us deliver our capital investment programme in support of our growing region.”

Ian Hutchinson, Managing Director of Anglian Water’s @one Alliance, said: “Alliancing in this way allows partners to reimagine traditional ways of working by encouraging innovative thinking, advancement of new technology, and collaborative working between partners.

“This flexibility means that the @one Alliance plays a crucial role in enabling Anglian Water to deliver large-scale investments to build its region’s resilience against climate change.

“By combining the @one Alliance’s partners’ years of investing in innovation and efficient delivery, we’ve been able to decrease the total cost of our proposed AMP8 plans from £10bn to £9bn, a 10% reduction.

“We’ve already seen how successful and powerful a truly integrated and collaborative alliancing approach can be. That’s why we’re delighted to welcome back our much-valued partners, along with Binnies this AMP, to support us in delivering this much-needed investment for our region.”

James Haddon, Barhale’s Eastern Region Director said “Anglian Water is England and Wales’s largest water company by geographical area and has committed to an impressive programme to provide resilience, enable growth, improve ecological quality and become carbon neutral across the region. These are huge challenges and it is a testament to the @one Alliance’s success that it continues to set a benchmark for collaboration and innovation both within the water industry and beyond.

“We are very proud to have been a part of the @one Alliance since its launch in 2005 and to be extending that relationship through the next AMP.”
