Jet Aire secures contract extension with Northumbrian Water

The Middlesbrough office of Jet Aire Services has secured a one-year contract extension, from Seymour Civil Engineering, to provide drainage maintenance on behalf of Northumbrian Water.

Jet Aire has just completed a similar three-year contract with Seymour Civil Engineering and its services have been retained with a new deal valued at circa £3m. Jet Aire will provide a wide range of professional drainage solutions including CCTV surveys, high-pressure water jetting, drain/sewer cleansing and clearance, tankering, waste disposal, CIPP patching/lining, UV lining, infiltration sealing, robotic cutting, root cutting and epoxy spray Ultracoating.

Jet Aire Managing Director, Charlie Kirk, said:

“Jet Aire Services are delighted to continue working with Seymour Civil Engineering, on behalf of Northumbrian Water. This contract represents one of our largest-ever, in terms of both the value and the extent of the works involved. Following several phases of substantial investment, we are equipped with the specialist training, technology and fleet resources to service contracts of this size and scope.”

“As well as demanding high technical and operational capability, the work has a high proportion of domestic service, which requires outstanding customer-facing skills and, during our first three-year contract, Jet Aire was one of the key contractors recognised by Northumbrian Water for excelling in this respect. We have supported their aim of delivering excellent Framework customer service and regulator Ofwat has awarded record scores for Northumbrian Water in the Wastewater category.”

Earlier this year Jet Aire completed a £2m investment in its fleet capability with the addition of five JHL FlexLine 414 recycler units which use advanced technology to cleanse and re-use water for jetting on site. They are 30% more powerful than standard equipment and enable faster turnaround of urgent waste removal and cleaning projects. There are only ten such vehicles in the UK and Jet Aire’s units are the only ones based in the North.
