Amey acquires utilities specialist

Amey has acquired Aquatech Engineering, a water leak detection and cartographic company.

The firm works with public and private sector to lower water consumption, identify and minimise potential leakage points before they occur, and deliver cost efficiencies. Other services include water conservation, microbiological and chemical analysis, rebate identification, water-efficiency audits, flow and pressure monitoring and tariff analysis.

All of Aquatech’s employees will join Amey, including managing director Judy Appleby.

Mel Ewell, Amey’s chief executive, said: “The acquisition of Aquatech Engineering strengthens our technical and professional services in the water sector, enabling Amey to further leverage our end-to-end capability across the utilities market. Coupled with our established maintenance experience, we can now offer an enhanced water consultancy service, which will drive significant efficiencies for our clients.”

Judy Appleby, managing director of Aquatech, said: “We are pleased to be joining Amey as there are clear synergies between our businesses and we look forward to combining our capabilities.”

Amey’s existing consultancy business has around 3,000 strategists, modellers and engineering design professionals, about 100 of whom specialise in utilities across clean and wastewater and electricity transmission and distribution.

Last year, Amey acquired utilities maintenance firm Enterprise.
