VolkerStevin has been appointed by Thames Water to carry out enabling works, in advance construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel which will tackle pollution in the Thames.
Last month VolkerStevin started work on the £23 million (31 million euro) project which will involve numerous marine construction projects in the city.
Rob Coupe, managing director at VolkerStevin, said: “This is an exciting project and one we are proud to be a part of. After a successful early contractor phase, we are delighted to continue working on this important scheme, which will benefit Londoner’s for years to come.”
The work is all part of the larger Thames Tideway Tunnel project which will help the capital cope with growing demands on its sewerage system and improve the water quality of the river using combined sewer overflow interceptor structures.
Mark Sneesby, chief operating officer for Tideway, said: “We are pleased to be working with VolkerStevin to deliver this important preparatory work in advance of the main tunneling project next year. It’s great to see work actually beginning on what will be an exciting construction project.”
