Following formal pre-qualification and tender processes, Rotork UK has been awarded a new and exclusive valve actuator supply framework agreement with South East Water for a period of three years, with the option to extend to five years.
South East Water serves a population of 2.1 million, supplying safe, high quality drinking water to 880,000 properties in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire. Rotork valve actuators play an important part in processes that abstract, treat and distribute the water 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Many of these processes utilise Rotork IQ intelligent multi-turn and part-turn valve actuators and Profibus control networks to assist with high levels of automation and provide diagnostic and preventative maintenance functions.
Rotork UK’s framework is also designed to provide training and support services to South East Water staff and its delivery contractors, enabling the design, commissioning and maintenance of flow control equipment to be achieved in the most efficient way and deliver reliable, automated control.
