Taswater has selected the preferred contractor to deliver a capital works program to support and develop water and wastewater infrastructure and major regional water projects in Tasmania.
A joint venture between CIMIC Group companies UGL and CPB Contractors has been selected by the Tasmanian water and sewage utility to deliver the program, which CIMIC Group said will generate revenue to the business of more than $600 million – a figure to be confirmed at contract execution – over an initial four-year period.
According to CIMIC Group, UGL, CPB Contractors and Taswater intend to establish an Alliance to deliver infrastructure planning, project development and delivery of all capital works across Taswater’s regional asset network in Tasmania.
These include water and wastewater treatment plants, water networks, dams and water storage and general asset renewal programs.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright welcomed the announcement.
“The unique combination of UGL’s expertise in the water sector and CPB Contractors’ experience in major project design and construction projects position us strongly to partner with Taswater to deliver world-class infrastructure to the communities of Tasmania,” he said.
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria echoed Mr. Wright’s sentiment.
“Both CPB Contractors and UGL have successfully delivered a range of water projects in Australia for more than 50 years. We are really looking forward to bringing the CIMIC Group’s expertise to benefit Taswater and the people of Tasmania.”
