Water partners smash consumption targets 11 years early

Posted: Thursday 30th December 2010

The partnership responsible for keeping Britain’s military personnel supplied with water has smashed its target for reducing water consumption – a staggering 11 years ahead of schedule.

Aquatrine Supplier Association delivers water and wastewater services for most Ministry of Defence (MOD) sites across England, Scotland and Wales. The partnership met its Government target to cut water consumption by 25 per cent by the year 2020 in 2009.

Now Team Aquatrine has been shortlisted for a national utility industry award for supply chain excellence after exceeding government sustainability targets - just five years after the government targets were set.

By applying the latest techniques and technologies in leakage detection and repair across the Defence estate, the team has been able to deliver savings equivalent to 10 Olympic-sized swimming pools every day.

Defence Estates (DE) Aquatrine Sustainability Manager Chris Boulton said:

“Defence Estates’ priority is to support our Armed Forces and their families. The Aquatrine partnership helps us to provide water services needed across the military estate, whilst helping to safeguard our environment and provide value for money.

“Improved management of leakage on the MOD estate represents a clear demonstration of the success of the Aquatrine Project agreements. It illustrates the expertise, experience and effectiveness of the project’s service providers.

“Our success was achieved whilst ensuring the minimum of disruption to site operations and security of water supply to defence customers. This achievement is highly commendable and deserves full recognition.”
