ECS wins Scottish Water Price and Supply Agreement for the supply, installation and repair of Screw Pumps
As the latest round of contract awards is completed, ECS Engineering Services has secured a one year Price and Supply Agreement with Scottish Water for the supply, installation and repair of Screw Pumps. The award endorses the quality and value of ECS’s services, as well as its manufacture capability and excellent site health and safety record.
The agreement requires a complete service to be provided for screw pump maintenance, refurbishment and provision; Scottish Water is one of the largest operators of this type of equipment in the UK. ECS has been recognised for its specialist expertise in this area, in particular the full support services available, having previously supplied Water Utilities with new screw pumps and refurbishment services via existing Tier 1 Framework Contractors. Specialist services include; complete hand re-screeding of concrete troughs, replacing lower bearings for upgraded, fully stainless steel units and full drive train refurbishments. ECS has the skilled workforce required for completing projects to the highest standard as well as an extensive in house fabrication capability to support this.
Based in Huthwaite, Notts., ECS provides engineering expertise and delivers turnkey projects to maintain and improve wastewater facilities throughout the country. In demonstrating this capability, ECS has been awarded the RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Health & Safety, on multiple consecutive occasions, proving its commitment to maintaining excellent standards within the workforce.
In addition to repair and refurbishment services, ECS supplies new screw pumps through its relationship with Landustrie, a leading Dutch manufacturer of Archimedes screw pumps, who appointed ECS Engineering Services as the exclusive agent for its screw pump related products in the UK.
Landustrie, a leading innovator in this field, continues to develop the basic screw pump principle with new drive techniques and improved moulding of the concrete troughs as well as producing the most reliable lower bearing available. When combined with ECS’s professional installation and maintenance team, the improvements in overall running efficiency and maintenance costs can be easily demonstrated. The capability to supply a complete service in relation to screw pump installation and operation was a key factor in enabling ECS to win the framework contract.
Jamie Wesley, Operations Manager at ECS, comments: “This is another great opportunity for our company which has shown that engineering quality and excellent service always pays.”
