SVT seeks partners for £2.5bn capital programme

Severn Trent (SVT) and Hafren Dyfrdwy have begun the search for supply chain partners to deliver their combined capital delivery programmes worth £2.5 billion during the current asset management period (AMP7).

Hafren Dyfrdwy and its parent SVT want to “expand and diversify” their supply chain partners with organisations capable of delivering across their water and wastewater estates.

Capital delivery and commercial director for the Severn Trent group, Helen Miles, said: “We’re on an exciting journey with big investment plans focussed on improving our environment.  We want to partner with local and national suppliers with a broad range of capabilities, from the smallest to the largest delivery partners.

“If you’re looking to grow your business with a reliable partner, want to leave a lasting legacy for generations to come or just want to be involved in some truly exciting projects, we want to hear from you,” she said.

The companies’ combined AMP7 capital programmes include individual small projects, asset renewal and refurbishment, and large scale works improvements.

For SVT this will include its £566 million Green Recovery programme, while for Hafren Dyfrdwy its largest project will be a wastewater treatment scheme covering the whole of Powys. It is particularly keen to work with suppliers based in Wales.
