Abigroup named preferred contractor for Melbourne Water’s capital works program

Abigroup has been selected as one of three service providers that will be responsible for providing design and construction services to Melbourne Water with respect to Treatment Plants and Transfer/ Pipeline assets in Victoria.

Under a three-year framework agreement, Abigroup and its joint venture partner CH2M HILL, will have the opportunity to provide design and construction services for a proposed $1 billion worth of projects from Melbourne Water’s projected $2.5 billion capital works program as part of its 2013 Water Plan.

Works proposed in the plan include a $200 million capacity upgrade to the Western Treatment Plant, $130 million renewal of ageing water supply pipes and $96 million for the delivery of essential services in Melbourne’s growing west.

General Manager for Abigroup’s water business Chris Bulloch said, “We are very pleased to have been appointed one of the preferred service providers by Melbourne Water for this important infrastructure program that will drive innovation and provide essential services to the Melbourne community for the future.

“This work is a continuation of successful water infrastructure programs delivered by Abigroup, and represents an opportunity to deliver water and wastewater infrastructure with one of Australia’s largest public water authorities.”

Abigroup is currently delivering capital works programs for clients in the water sector including Sydney Water and Hunter Water Corporation in New South Wales, ACTEW in the ACT, as well as LinkWater, Gold Coast Water and the Whitsunday Regional Council in Queensland.
