Three year extension to framework contract

Flood and pollution prevention specialists, Detectronic, have been awarded a three-year extension to their framework contract with Severn Trent Water.

After supplying, installing and maintaining wastewater network level und flow monitors for the water company starting in 2010 and continuing throughout AMP5 and into AMP6, Detectronic have been instrumental in supporting Severn Trent Water to proactively reduce pollution and spills from its sewer network.

“Our primary objectives were to deliver sewer network monitoring for Severn Trent Water helping them to trouble-shoot their sewer networks and at the same time gain a comprehensive understanding of the frequency and duration of intermittent discharges from storm overflows,” explains Steve Woods, managing director of Detectronic.

“By continually analysing the data from the monitors and looking for trends, our software systems and skilled data centre analysts have been able to inform of any potential issues before they happen thus enabling Severn Trent Water to deal with them quickly and effectively.”

Last year Severn Trent Water announced an increase in its Outcome Delivery Incentive (ODI) rewards awarded by Ofwat to £47.4 million (before tax).

Continues Steve: “Since we started working with the team at Severn Trent Water we have consistently and reliably delivered high quality data and reporting that has enabled the water company to exceed several of its ODIs.

“This latest extension to the framework contract will see our site crews maintain and service well over 1,000 monitors across the STW catchment areas. At the same time, our data centre will continue to deliver detailed analysis and reporting to provide early warning of any problems in the network in support of Severn Trent Water helping to further enhance its performance.”
