TasWater awards multimillion-dollar capital works contract
TasWater has chosen UGL and CPB Contractors to manage infrastructure planning and project delivery across the utility’s regional asset network.
This includes water and wastewater treatment plants, water networks, dams and water storage, and asset renewal programs.
The joint partnership between the two companies, both of which are owned by CIMIC Group, will generate about $600 million of revenue over an initial four-year period.
CPB and UGL have partnered on water projects across Australia for more than 50 years, and CIMIC Group CEO Michael Wright said the companies will each bring their own expertise to TasWater’s projects.
“Backed by CPB Contractors’ experience in major project design and construction, and UGL’s water sector expertise, we are pleased to partner with TasWater to manage the delivery of world-class infrastructure for the people of Tasmania,” Wright said.
UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said the companies, which are currently working together to deliver the stage two upgrade of Melbourne Water’s Western Treatment Plant, are looking forward to working with the Tasmanian utility.
“This is a great opportunity to collaborate with TasWater in developing and delivering essential water infrastructure across its network,” Spears said.
“Through our water industry capability, we will optimise capital delivery through innovative infrastructure planning and project development.”
