The Company

United Utilities holds a licence to provide water and sewage services to around seven million people in North West England.

The Challenge

Exova (now owned by Element Materials Technology) strengthened its partnership with United Utilities through a three year framework agreement that requires Exova to provide materials testing and audit services to the utilities giant.

The Solution

Exova’s Project Management structure is supporting United Utilities with dedicated expertise, using its decades of experience in the water industry, with five PhD qualified specialists and two qualified Expert Witnesses on the team. Exova’s utilities team – part of the group’s Industrials division – is providing services that include site inspection, and support and advice on standards and legislation.

Exova is utilising three of its UKAS accredited laboratories in Salford, Trafford Park and Shotton in Deeside, 14 fully equipped mobile laboratories and a number of utility sector experts to carry out the contract.
