Scottish Water announce huge framework bid success for BGEN and WGM engineering joint venture.

WGM Engineering Ltd and BGEN ltd are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a MEICA Framework contract with Scottish Water for the period 2021-2027, with the option of an additional six years post 2027.

Scottish Water is forecasting to invest one billion pounds a year and the initial six-year period is estimated to be worth around £270m for the WGM-B Joint Venture.

The Joint Venture has fully demonstrated during the rigorous procurement process that we fully understand and wholeheartedly support Scottish Water’s Vision and Strategic Ambitions.

As a self-delivery organisation, we will be using our own people and off-site modular build facilities to standardise, reduce risk, improve efficiency and enhance quality.

This award is a huge accolade for our Joint Venture and recognition of the monumental work performed by our teams leading up to this point.  I am incredibly excited to be working in partnership with WGM on this long-term contract with Scottish Water. Through this award, we will be committing to helping address a countrywide water sector skills gap and shortage, giving our existing people and new recruits the opportunity for coaching, personal development and growth, to enable everyone to achieve the very best they can

Robin Whitehead, Managing Director, BGEN

I am delighted that as a Joint Venture, we have secured our position on this long-term framework. Working closely with Scottish Water, we are committed to investing in local communities and creating jobs in those communities, throughout the period of the Framework. We have aligned our ambitions to reduce carbon emissions with Scottish Water, to fully support their Beyond Net Zero Emissions ambition by 2040. Our commitment to innovation, continuous learning and improvement in the way we work, will enhance productivity, reduce cycle times and improve efficiency.  We are really looking forward to working with BGEN and Scottish Water in a truly integrated and collaborative way over the next 12 years
