We are supporting a number of UK Water Only Companies (WOCs) and Water and Sewerage Companies (WaSCs) across their Customer and AMP Commitments, either directly through Frameworks arrangements or in partnership with Tier 1 Framework Partners.
Our offering to this sector in the UK seeks to draw upon our unique "end to end" involvement in the Irish water industry where we are contractually responsible through 20 year concessions for Service Delivery across a diverse portfolio of over 200 water and wastewater treatment facilities. Some of our concessions allocate all operational and environmental performance risks to EPS Group for the duration of the concession. We understand the impact of historical under investment and maintenance across key treatment assets. That is why we also manufacture our own mission-critical products for incorporation into our portfolio. High quality products provide the best asset performance and availability together with demonstrable whole lifecycle cost benefits. It is this "end to end" experience which has set us apart from competitors in the UK, in the delivery of AMP5 D&B projects, planning for AMP6 (PR14/ECI engagements and consultation), product manufacture through LEAN practice and informed Opex solutions.
We are also currently evolving our Packaged Sewage Pumping Station products to support the PDaS (Private Drains and Sewers) legislation nationally ahead of the 2016 pumping station transfer deadline. Our unique status as one of Europe's leading pump re-sellers and one of the UK's largest GRP product manufacturers, holds us in good stead to develop a low maintenance, low energy, automated solution for this sub-market.
Whilst our heritage in the water sector started in Ireland in 1968, our future lies in global markets and our people. With growing export revenues, we seek to grow our UK business as a trusted Tier 2 MEICA Partner and Framework product supplier, backed by significant operational experience and manufacturing capability. We are transparent with our strategy, one of working with only a few chosen Partners, to focus our collaborative strengths for the benefit of the bill-paying customer.
