Expressions of Interest (Tender)

The Manx Utilities Authority is a statutory authority providing electricity, wholesale natural gas and clean water and processes waste water on the Isle of Man.
The existing water main on the loop road is old and fragile. It was laid in 1959 and is constructed from Asbestos Cement. This material is particularly susceptible to bursts and attack from ground water. This particular main has burst more than 20 times in the last 20 years and bursts are becoming more regular. The burst cause a loss of supply to customers and also cause our Service Reservoir at Ballaragh to fail and empty due to a lack of pressure caused by a burst.
This project involves the installation 1,175 metres of 125mm diameter water main along Dhoon Loop Road in the east of the island. There are 15 customers connected to this main, both domestic and commercial (farms).
Manx Utilities wishes to appoint a suitably qualified and competent Contractor to replace this water main.
