Agility Alliance secures five-year contract extension as part of Thames Water Infrastructure Alliance

Agility Alliance, an equal share joint venture between Morrison Utility Services and J Murphy & Sons, has secured a five-year extension to its AMP6 water network and developer services agreement with Thames Water.

Under the terms of the extended contract, Agility Alliance will continue to deliver planned and reactive operational water networks support as part of Thames Water’s AMP7 (2020-2025) investment programme. The scope of works will include repair and maintenance, developer service work and programmed works, including minor capital works, across the Thames Water delivery region.

Agility Alliance was formed in April 2015 to deliver approximately £500m of water network and developer services works as part of Thames Water’s ground breaking Infrastructure Alliance. As an Infrastructure Alliance partner, Agility’s AMP6 targets included reducing leakage and enhancing the service Thames Water offers to its nine million water customers across London and the Thames Valley.

Steve Spencer, Thames Water Operations Director, said: “This is a really difficult but exciting time for us and our suppliers as we mark the start of the delivery phase of AMP7. We know we have some tough challenges to get through now and lying further ahead, but we’re all set to work together in providing resilient and reliable water services to our customers across London and the Thames Valley.

“We have ambitious plans for the next five years including a further reduction of leakage and reducing interruptions to water supplies and our suppliers will be key to helping us achieve those goals.”

Agility Alliance JV Director Steve Gibbs commented: “We are delighted to have secured this extension to our long-term, strategic relationship with Thames Water. Over the past five years, we have worked collaboratively with Thames Water and other Infrastructure Alliance partners to support the significant step changes in efficiency and performance that it was targeting for the AMP6 regulatory period. We look forward to continuing our work as a member of the Infrastructure Alliance, using innovation, sustainability and best practice to drive safety, reduce leakage, further improve customer service and deliver new efficiencies in support of Thames Water’s AMP7 investment programme.”
