Newry firm wins sewer con­tract in Eng­land

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

A NEWRY civil en­gi­neer­ing con­trac­tor has won a slice of a £30m con­tract for a ma­jor sewer project in south east Eng­land.

Terra So­lu­tions will work on South­ern Wa­ter’s Vic­to­rian sewer re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion project in Thanet, Kent — a ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture project val­ued at over £30m.

Terra So­lu­tions Lim­ited, which has been trad­ing since 2008, has en­tered into a new joint ven­ture, TPMD, to carry out the work.

The sew­er­age up­grade will de­liver phase two of South­ern Wa­ter’s project to re­pair and re­line the cen­tury-old net­work.

Terra So­lu­tions is sup­ported by Ul­ster Bank but it is also re­ceiv­ing back­ing from the bank’s as­set fi­nance arm Lom­bard for the de­vel­op­ment of spe­cialised lin­ing equip­ment for the con­tract. Terra boss Barry Mcallister said it was in­vest­ing heav­ily in its sewer re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion lin­ing di­vi­sion.
