Exeeco APS wins contract for Yorkshire Water

Exeeco APS wins service and repair framework contract for Yorkshire Water’s valve actuators

An Exeeco APS engineer prepares to remove a faulty actuator and fit a Rotork IQ loan unit in its place whilst it is assessed for repair or replacement.

Yorkshire Water has strengthened its relationship with Exeeco APS (Actuation, Projects & Service), the UK’s largest valve actuator service provider, with the award of a service and repair framework contract. The contract will run for two years, with the option to extend to five years.

Exeeco’s responsibilities will involve the maintenance of several thousand valve actuators and associated equipment at over 700 water and sewage treatment works and 120 reservoirs on a 24 hour-a-day basis. These facilities manage the daily collection, treatment and distribution of 1.24 billion litres of water as well as the safe collection, treatment of disposal of one billion litres of waste water back into the environment. Additional Exeeco services will include actuator upgrading, replacement and retrofitting, with the provision of loan actuators to cover workshop overhauls and repairs, an Exeeco innovation which has proved to save significant downtime costs.

These activities are performed by a fully qualified specialist workforce and supported by large spares stockholdings at the Exeeco head office and workshop in Leeds. As a part of the Rotork flow control group, Exeeco has worked with Yorkshire Water for many years, supporting an installed inventory of Rotork actuators that now numbers 6,500. Recently, more than seventy Yorkshire Water field service engineers have attended courses at Exeeco’s comprehensive actuator training facility, giving them specialist hands-on training with Rotork electric valve actuators.

This training has been very well received and described as “must have” by the recipients. Yorkshire Water Technical Support Engineer Nick Cooper commented: “The training programme is proving to be a significant cost saving. Our engineers are much more confident in their ability to carry out actuator settings and adjustments.”

Ian Elliott, Exeeco APS Sales Manager, is enthusiastic about the framework contract award. He says: “This award cements our partnering with Yorkshire Water, who we have been supporting for several decades. We look forward to further developing the relationship with the increased opportunities for our specialist services presented by the contract, including the replacement of obsolete equipment with industry-standard Rotork products, retrofitting, diagnostics and preventative maintenance.”
