Selwood has been awarded a major contract for the supply of pumping solutions for Southern Water and its contractors for up to a decade.
The framework agreement, which marks the first time that Selwood has been awarded a framework contract for Southern Water, is for five years with the option of another five to follow.
The agreement will cover all of Southern Water’s sites across Hampshire, Sussex and Kent and gives Southern Water 24-hour access to Selwood’s comprehensive stock of surface, hydraulic and submersible pumps coupled with support from the company’s experienced project managers and mechanical and electrical engineers.
Selwood will ensure continuous availability of Southern Water’s most frequently-used equipment and stock will be kept permanently on standby for emergency use.
Southern Water, like all Selwood framework customers, will have live remote access to an online portal where it can check information such as current and past contracts, which equipment is on and off site, safety information and test certificates.
Richard Brown, Selwood’s Managing Director for UK Pump Rental, said: “We are delighted to be able to add Southern Water to the long and growing list of major UK water companies which have chosen Selwood as a framework supplier for pumping solutions.
“Selwood’s success in becoming a framework provider for many of the UK’s largest water companies has driven continuous investment in the size and diversity of our extensive rental fleet.
“We are very pleased that in entering into this agreement, Southern Water has recognised Selwood’s unrivalled product range, outstanding service and expertise in the water industry.”
