Burtonwood Generator & Switchgear Services is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a major contract by East of England water utility, Anglian Water.

Speaking from the St Helens Head Office, Keith Littler, Managing Director said, “It’s tremendous to win such a prestigious contract. Anglian Water has awarded us an AMP6 machinery repair and maintenance services contract with an estimated value of £3.5 million.”

The contract covers the servicing and maintenance of diesel standby power and load shedding generators, together with remedial work on diesel standby power and load shedding generators across all four Anglian Water operating regions.

“As the successful supplier we will also be required to conduct G59 tests and remedial work on mains synchronised generators, control panels and associated switchboards. With seven other companies who were in the bidding for the work, to win the contract has been a major success. It puts our Peterborough office and staff right at the centre of the Anglian Water region and we look forward to working closely with them over the coming years”, he added.
