Dwr Cymru Cyfyngedig (DCC) trading as Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (DCWW) provides water and sewerage services to over three million people living and working in Wales, as well as some adjoining parts of England. It is anticipated that DCC will be delivering between £300-£350m of project work annually over the AMP8 period, including some significant standalone investigations for future AMPs, as long-term delivery strategies point to higher levels of investment within AMP9.

As part of a change to the way DCC delivers its major capital programme, MM will be supporting the company’s Asset Planners by undertaking data gathering, root cause analysis, modelling, solution evaluation, environmental assessments, feasibility and optioneering to identify optimal solutions to be taken forward into delivery. MM will focus on ensuring the solutions identified achieve the affordability, outcome, and sustainability objectives of DCC.

In addition, the larger AMP8 capital programme will see a significant increase in the environment programme. MM’s considerable experience in delivering nature-based solutions, increasing biodiversity and helping clients towards their net zero targets will be critical in enabling DCC achieve these broader goals.

Richard Risdon UK and Europe managing director for MM said:

Mott MacDonald has a long and well-established track record in the UK water sector, with a heritage stretching back more than 100 years. We have created a specialist team to work closely with Welsh Water, offering the very best of our digital, environmental and technical capabilities with a clear focus on delivering social outcomes in all we do. We’re looking forward to working with them and other framework partners to deliver this critically important programme of projects”.

Andy Taylor, Director of Asset Planning, Welsh Water said:

“Our proposed Business Plan for the next five year period will see our largest ever investment into enhancing our environment and protecting the water we supply to our customers. We look forward to working with Mott MacDonald on our Engineering Consultancy Services framework to support us delivering our investment so that we can continue providing efficient, cost-effective water and wastewater services to our three million customers.”

The Framework contract will run for an initial period of four years, with the potential extension for a further four years.
