United Utilities returns to Rotork for new actuation framework agreement
Serving a population of seven million, United Utilities operates 184 reservoirs, more than 700 water and sewage treatment plants and 170,000 kilometres of pipework and sewers in an area bounded by the English Midlands, the Irish Sea, the Scottish Borders, the Pennines and the Peak District.
After a period with another electric actuator manufacturer the move to Rotork follows the revision of the United Utilities specification for valve actuators to include a double-sealed and non-intrusive actuator enclosure. These features, which are recognised by United Utilities as essential for long term environmental resistance, reliable performance and low maintenance, are standard design features of Rotork’s IQ and IQT intelligent electric valve actuator ranges. In addition to contributing to efficient plant operation, they also help to reduce the overall cost of ownership.

Commenting on the award, Laurence said “Rotork is looking forward to the successful implementation of this new opportunity to serve United Utilities and its business partners.”
