Transfield Services JV wins new A$1.1bn SA Water contract

A Transfield Services joint venture with Degremont and Suez Environnement has secured a new 10 year alliance contract with a new customer, SA Water, worth approximately A$1.1 billion to operate and maintain water and wastewater services for the City of Adelaide and surrounding metropolitan area.

After the initial term, the contract has a further extension option that will be reviewed and awarded in 12 month increments for up to six years.

Transfield Services holds a 50 percent share in the joint venture. In an alliance with SA Water the joint venture will maintain and operate South Australian water and wastewater treatment plants, water and wastewater network assets providing potable water to over 1.1 million residents in a regional area stretching from Gawler, 50 kilometres north of the city, to Yankalilla, 80 kilometres to the south. It will also be responsible for the delivery of minor capital works that relate directly to the operations of the network and treatment plants.
