Fastflow wins £30m contract extension with Northumbrian Water

Utility infrastructure services provider Fastflow has secured a two-year extension of its framework contract with Northumbrian Water, in a deal worth an estimated £30 million.

The work carried out by Fastflow under the extended contract includes mains rehabilitation and renewal, repairs and maintenance, new connections, metering reinstatement and incident support.

Short cycle works are currently largely focused on meter installation through the peak spring period – a service for which Fastflow helped NWL to achieve its best ever results in 2012/13.

In terms of long cycle works there are plans to work on 73 kilometres of pipeline in 2013/4, including 25 kilometres of iron compliance works.

Neil Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“We are delighted to have secured a further two years of work with Northumbrian Water.  This contract extension gives the business a much higher valued future order book and continuity of workload, which is extremely important to us in these challenging economic times.

“Fastflow has worked directly for Northumbrian Water for more than 20 years now and we are very pleased to continue that strong working relationship."

Originally established by Northumbrian Water in 1990, the business was acquired by Neil Armstrong in July 2005 and has now also diversified into the gas sector.
