Affinity Water awards £55M HS2 framework

Water cropped

Barhale and a Glan Agua Farrans JV (GAFJV) have been awarded places on High Speed 2’s (HS2) £55M process and network modifications framework for Affinity Water.

The £55M contract was split up into three lots with Barhale awarded lot 1 and GAFJV appointed for lots 2 and 3, worth a total of £29M.

Once finished, High Speed 2 will cut through Affinity Water’s network, so upgrades to the water network need to be carried out to prepare for the construction of the line.

Lot 1 will involve the design and installation of water mains with diversions, replacement and network reinforcement of existing water mains. It also includes assessment and monitoring of the condition of water mains and provision of new and existing connections into them.

Lot 2 will require the design and installation of modifications of up to five treatment sites primarily to deal with the risk of increased levels of chalk turbidity (cloudiness of the water) as a result of HS2’s construction and on-going maintenance.

Lot 3 includes the design and installation of modifications to two existing groundwater abstraction sites.

Glan Agua managing director Karl Zimmerer said: “Glan Agua is extremely proud of the award of this contract and it marks a significant step for growth ambitions for the UK. We understand how crucial this project is for Affinity Water and HS2 Ltd and believe that collaboration will be key to achieving the successful delivery of the framework objectives.”
