Wood Group PSN wins major contract with Melbourne Water

Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has been awarded a $232 million contract by Melbourne Water to provide maintenance services and low risk capital works to its metropolitan water and waste water network. 

Under the contract, WGPSN will provide mechanical, electrical and civil maintenance services to several hundred sewage transfer and water treatment facilities across Melbourne.

The award of this contract will result in more than 150 new jobs for WGPSN in Melbourne. Taking a partnership approach to service delivery, a WGPSN management team will be based at the Melbourne Water office in Brooklyn, with maintenance personnel working across the city’s southern, eastern and western regions.

Matt Gavin (pictured here), regional director for WGPSN Australia said: ““We have sixteen years experience providing maintenance services to Australia’s water industry and our achievements have been considered world class standard for maintenance management in water utilities by independent auditor, MCP Asset Management Information Services (AMIS).

“Additionally, we have a great deal of experience in providing best practice maintenance services to the oil and gas industry, both here in Australia and globally. We apply the same rigor to safety and process management in the water industry as we do in an offshore oil and gas environment.”

The contract is effective August 21, 2012.

Tony Antoniou, general manager, operations and maintenance at Melbourne Water said: “Wood Group PSN had a significant track record of driving continuous improvement and efficiency in delivering maintenance and low risk capital works, and has demonstrated outstanding performance in health and safety on previous contracts, which is critical to Melbourne Water.”
