UK water company Yorkshire Water
has chosen Amey
to repair and maintain its waste water network
. The contract, worth 113 million pounds (155 million euro), runs until 2020 with the possibility of a 5-year extension.
Under the project, which comes into force in September this year, Amey will take charge of maintaining a network of over 20,000 miles (over 32,000 kilometres) of sewer pipe that serves close to two million households in Yorkshire, in north-east England.
The contract expands Amey's position in services to utilities
; it already works for seven utilities in Scotland, Wales and north and central England, serving over 23 million end users.
