Working in a JV with process engineering firm Doosan Enpure, the 30-month project will see the construction of new treatment facilities alongside the current plant, which will only stop operations when the new plant is ready. The current plant was constructed in the 1970s and supplies 150M litres of water a day.

Interserve chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “Both Interserve and Doosan Enpure have an established track record of delivering major utilities projects and we’re excited to be working together on this project for Northumbrian Water which will give the residents of Tyneside a world-class facility that will be used for years to come. Where possible, we will use local resources, while supporting the local economy and employment in the region.”

Northumbrian Water’s head of water supply Noel Cooper said: “We are committed to providing our customers with unrivalled customer experience. We know how much our customers rely on their tap water so ensuring it is excellent quality is a top priority. This work will not only ensure that the Horsley water treatment works continues to meet ever increasing water quality standards, it will also improve the site’s resilience.”
