Maintaining the flow for Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water
IVS is helping Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water extend the life of its assets by assuming care of valves at 66 of its reservoirs.
Adopting a proactive service approach, IVS will maintain and overhaul valves to ensure they operate effectively and for longer.
Supporting Dŵr Cymru’s system improvements and increasing cost efficiency, the agreement will also help to keep water flowing for customers while reducing the environmental impact of unnecessary scrappage.
“We’re delighted to be awarded this contract and look forward to building a strong, collaborative relationship that delivers real value,” said Steve Jones, managing director of IVS.
“IVS is committed to helping clients save by keeping valve assets in use for as long as possible and the contract follows a detailed appraisal of how we can support Dŵr Cymru in their pursuit of system improvements.”
Running for an initial three-year period with the option to extend, the agreement covers valves at impounded reservoirs across Wales.
IVS will ensure that all valves work according to their intended specification, significantly prolonging their service period through maintenance, before refurbishing them to give them a new lease of life.
Work for Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water will be carried out by IVS’s 20-strong expert team based at Swansea.
