A First With Wessex Water

Back to news

FSD have recently been awarded the contract for the electrical installation and building services at the Maundown Water Treatment Works near Wiveliscombe in Somerset. This is a Wessex Water site and instead of working for a main contractor our contract is with Wessex Water who are managing the construction.

The project at Maundown is essentially a new-build conventional modern water works. There is an existing water works on the site which has reached the limit of its viable upgrades, and the new works with a higher capacity are being built alongside. Following commissioning of the new works the old works will be demolished.

A key reason for us winning this contract was FSD offering Wessex Water a viable programme to meet their commissioning and in-service requirements. This will represent the major challenge of the project, achieving a completed process installation inside 6½ months, with the building services a month later.
