Just one week short of our 21st birthday, we could be forgiven for starting the celebrations a little early. We’re celebrating winning a 12 year Scottish Water contract.
The firm which is based in the Scottish Borders town of Melrose has succeeded in winning a 12 year (6 + 6) framework contract with Scottish Water to provide critical engineering services potentially until 2027.
The sole supplier contract includes the inspection, cleaning & maintenance of over 2000 treated water storage assets across of the whole of Scotland including the highland and Islands.
Jim Panton is delighted with the contract win, “To be able to plan for the next 6-12 years is brilliant for the business and it will secure and create local employment.”
“I would like to thank the whole Panton McLeod team for their support on this tender, from the site teams, supervisors, support staff and management, everyone has played their part.”
“It is very fitting that this contract award ties in with our 21st birthday celebrations, back in September 1994 it was the predecessors of Scottish Water who were our first ever clients, and we are very proud to have supported them every year since.”
Treated water storage assets such as Service Reservoir and Water Towers are the last point of storage prior to the customer tap and therefore their maintenance and cleaning is critical to providing a safe and wholesome water supply to the public.
During the contract, we will use a variety of specialist methods for the work including Robotic technology and also a range of bespoke cleaning products which are designed to remove stubborn biofouling and kill harmful organisms such as Cryptosporidium.
Jim is very proud of the teams work, “Water Quality compliance is a matter of public health, over the years we have improved and expanded our service provision and working with Scottish Water we have been able to raise standards to some of the best in the industry, I am delighted that we will now continue to support Scottish Water and Scotland as a whole.”
