From Hitchin to Milan – Morrison Utility Services celebrates a record breaking achievement for tRIIO JV

28 May 2019

Morrison Utility Services (MUS), has announced that its tRIIO joint venture (MUS and Skanska UK working on behalf of Cadent) has achieved a record-breaking figure of over 1,100km of gas mains replaced and abandoned over the last 12 months. The recorded total is equal to the distance between tRIIO’s depot in Hitchin, Hertfordshire to Milan, Italy. Over 1,000km of the mains replaced and abandoned was tier 1 (8 inches and below).

MUS Executive Director Sean Kelly commented: “My appreciation and thanks goes to the entire tRIIO team for what is an undeniably outstanding achievement over the past 12 months. I don’t underestimate all of the hard work, commitment and effort that has gone into delivering this outstanding achievement which I am sure must be an industry first across all tiers. This accomplishment was a real team effort and provides a very strong platform to build on. I look forward to another industry first for the tRIIO team at the end of year seven.”

tRIIO is a gas engineering business working in partnership with Cadent to improve the supply of gas to millions of people living and working in North London and the East of England and is a joint venture owned by Morrison Utility Services and Skanska UK. It specialises in the delivery of design and contracting services for the UK’s gas distribution network – replacing old mains, laying new ones, installing new connections to houses and commercial premises and helping with emergency response services.
