Amec Foster Wheeler has been successfully re-appointed to Welsh Water’s Water Resource and Drought Planning Consultancy Framework. The company will provide specialist services to assist with the delivery of Welsh Water’s next statutory Water Resources Management and Drought Plan 2019 in a contract which will run until April 2020, with the potential for a further two year extension.

Amec Foster Wheeler’s existing long-term relationship with Welsh Water, dating back to 2001, developed from providing specialist services over the last three water resource planning cycles and its commitment to building the client’s capacity to continually drive innovation and improve performance.

Amec Foster Wheeler and its partners – Hydro-Logic Services, HR Wallingford, Arup and AEA-Ricardo – will provide a range of specialist water resource planning, modelling and drought planning services to Welsh Water. They will support its ability to assess and forecast the water supply and demand bases, evaluate risk and uncertainty in long-term planning and investment decisions, and plan for future drought scenarios across Wales.

Welsh Water has been a valued partner over many years, and we look forward to further developing our relationship through this framework, helping to build a robust long-term plan for water in Wales that is resilient to the challenges of the future. This aligns closely with our strategy to be a recognised leader in integrated water planning, water resilience, and the development of sustainable catchment and asset solutions.
