Lanes wins Thames Water framework contracts clean sweep

Lanes Group plc has won major new contracts to provide specialist cleaning services for Thames Water.

The work includes sewage treatment plant cleaning, sewage pumping station cleaning, wet well emptying, and tankering.

Lanes Group has joined other contractors on a framework pool to supply the services for three years, with options to extend delivery for up to eight years.

Lanes Group Director Andy Brierley said: "We're thrilled to be able to supply these specialist services for Thames Water and its 15 million wastewater customers.

"We already have highly skilled and dedicated teams in place, combined with the most advanced specialist vehicles, to carry out the work."

Thames Water tendered services in four lots within the framework. Lanes Group's bids were successful with all of them.

Through its Lanes Utilities Division, based in on the Slough Trading Estate, in Slough, Berkshire, Lanes Group is already Thames Water's sole wastewater network services maintenance partner.

Services delivered under the framework represent additional work.

Lanes Utilities operates more than 270 specialist vehicles from six utility service hubs, and employs 1,000 staff on behalf of Thames Water.

In the six years since the partnership went live, Lanes Utilities has won a string of national awards for health and safety excellence, innovation, and operational effectiveness that is driven by industry-leading digital technology.

Lanes Group also delivers wastewater network maintenance services for other water companies, including Severn Trent, Scottish Water, and Anglian Water.
