WGM & RSE – Announced as Scottish Water DV2 Framework Partners
RWGM joint venture, consisting of delivery partners RSE and WGM Engineering, are delighted to announce that we have been successful in the award of Scottish Water’s SR21 Lot 3 framework, for the period of 2021-2027. The contract spans a six-year period and is estimated to be worth around £180m, with the opportunity to extend the agreement by a further six years post 2027.
Whilst undertaking the renewed contract, RWGM will be primarily focused on reactive repairs to water and wastewater mechanical and electrical assets. As a self-delivery organisation, the combination of our experienced people and off-site modular build facilities will be deployed to standardise, reduce risk, improve efficiency and enhance quality across Scottish Water projects.
Ian Mathieson, Managing Director of WGM Engineering, said:
“I am absolutely delighted that Scottish Water have selected RWGM as their framework partner for another 6-to-12-year period. Building on all the good work carried out previously by RWGM across the Scottish Water asset base, we are further committed to investing in local communities and creating jobs in those communities throughout the period of the framework.
We have aligned our ambitions to reduce carbon emissions with Scottish Water, to fully support their Beyond Net Zero Emissions ambition by 2040. Our commitment to planned maintenance, digital enablement, innovation, continuous learning and improvement in the way we work, will enhance productivity, reduce cycle times and improve efficiency.
We are really looking forward to working with RSE and Scottish Water in a truly integrated way over the coming years”.
Allan Dallas, RSE Managing Director, said:
“We are excited to enter into another 6 year plus period working in tandem with our partners WGM to deliver planned and reactive repairs across the UK for Scottish Water.
RWGM is well respected by Scottish Water Management and Operations. The strength of our Alliance coupled with the experience and governance of Managed Delivery offers an unrivalled, sustainable delivery model which is reliable, cost effective, offers a wealth of knowledge and provides a positive customer experience.”
Mark Dickson, Scottish Water’s Director of Capital Investment, said:
“This represents a significant milestone in the delivery of our service and investment activity. The companies and joint ventures appointed to carry out this work on behalf of Scottish Water will play a vital role in ensuring customers have the most resilient network which brings them water and removes and treats wastewater daily.
The procurement itself has been a lengthy and rigorous process – the biggest we have ever undertaken. The team at Scottish Water is looking forward to working with our partners to progress our ambitious plans for the next decade and beyond.”
RWGM are pleased to have the opportunity to develop our longstanding relationship with Scottish Water and look forward to working collaboratively in this next investment period in supporting their strategic ambitions and wider vision for a flourishing Scotland.
