ERIKS have been awarded Tier 1 supplier status by Thames Water for both the repair & maintenance of rotating equipment including pumps, motors, gearboxes, blowers, compressors and generators.
Thames Water have also awarded ERIKS special engineering services, which includes engineering solutions, maintenance and fabrication works to screens, aerators, digesters, valves, guarding, augers, washpactors, tanks macerators, conveyors, associated equipment and pipework.
Working with Thames Water since November 2008 on this project, this award is a testament to the consistently high levels of quality and service that ERIKS have provided through more than 25 year trading experience with the company. This experience gives us unprecedented knowledge of Thames Waters equipment, sites and working methods.
ERIKS workshops in Oxford, Maidenhead, Greenford, Heathrow, Dartford and Southampton will service the repair element of the framework with our experienced site service teams carrying out the on-site engineering solutions.
ERIKS skilled engineers all carry the necessary health & safety qualifications you would expect such as Safety Passports, confined space entry, EUSR Blue card and other statutory qualifications and requirements. We have worked extensively with Thames Water Developing our Risk Assessments and Safe Systems Of Work and these are now used extensively throughout ERIKS.
The FA906 Maintenance Services agreement replaces various frameworks held with a number of service providers. This new framework will be covered by a much smaller number of contractors.
