Morgan Est has reached a key milestone in its £31M to install three new pipework connections at Severn Trent’s Frankley Water Treatment Works.
The 1,100mm diameter pipes connect into different parts of Severn Trent Water’s existing water treatment works. Each connection was undertaken over a 24, 36 and 48 hour period respectively with the planning and execution involving more than 200 people from Morgan Est, Severn Trent Water and the supply chain.
These connections will help to improve the supply of drinking water to Severn Trent Water customers throughout the Birmingham area.
Morgan Est Project Manager Jay Standen, said: “The work went very well and we are pleased that through teamwork, thorough planning and good communication we have completed the connections within the allotted timescale and without incident.
“The team is working together efficiently and effectively and we are on schedule to complete the remainder of the project by the summer,” he said.
Work began in January 2007 and is due for completion in September 2009 to satisfy OFWAT consent requirements.
