Multinational energy company Wood has secured a $130m (A$189m) three-year contract extension with Melbourne Water to continue to deliver maintenance support to Melbourne Water infrastructure. The first contract signed by Wood with Melbourne Water was in 2012 which was followed by a renewal in 2016.
Wood with more than 20 years’ experience of assisting the Australian wastewater sector is dedicated to retaining and developing local infrastructure to meet the demands on a modern water network where urbanization continues to expand.
Under this contract (which is a second renewal) Wood provides mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, process control and civil maintenance services, employing a local team of approximately 250 on several sites from the Thomson Reservoir in the east to the Western Treatment Plant near Melbourne.
President of Wood’s Operations Services business in Australia, Ralph Ellis said:
“We are delighted to continue our support of Melbourne Water’s critical treatment works and systems. Wood is providing critical infrastructure support for cities across the world and we are committed to building on our successful track record to ensure safe and reliable maintenance to support important water systems for the Melbourne area.”
The company will provide maintenance and capital works for clean and wastewater treatment works, pumping stations and sewage trunk systems until 2022.
