Thames Water has awarded Cappagh a new contract to carry out sewer lining across its region.
The contract, which is a part of the larger Waste Network Services framework agreement, will see Cappagh complete more than 1,000 activities each year for up to 8 years, as the sole supplier. Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) “no-dig” methods will be used to create a new structural pipe within damaged foul and surface water sewers, returning the assets to serviceability. The scope of work includes small diameter, short length “patch repairs” and larger diameter, full length lining of defective sewer pipes.
Techniques to be employed include a mix of traditional and newer, cutting-edge technologies including ambient, steam, UV and LED cure. Cappagh is intending to stay at the forefront of Trenchless development and will be actively look to innovate people / plant and processes across the full 8 year period.
The contract commenced in June after a short mobilisation period and saw the transfer of personnel into Cappagh under TUPE regulations from the outgoing, unsuccessful contractor, to help form a new team. The combined team brings a wealth of technical experience to the contract and a “can-do” attitude to solving problems for customers.
Health and safety, a right-first-time approach to quality, brilliant customer service and value for money are the key drivers for the delivery team. This, coupled with the wider experience available within the Cappagh Group of Companies, specifically within the Trenchless technologies arena, will ensure we deliver a first-class service to our client every step of the way.Go Back
