Having recently been appointed as Severn Trent Water’s Strategic Instrumentation, Control & Automation (ICA) partner, Imtech UK’s Capula business division is now assisting the company’s aim to improve the effectiveness of ICA across the organisation.
Capula will undertake a six-month review to set the strategic direction for ICA and develop a consolidated view of ICA requirements across Severn Trent’s Water, Waste and Information Services as input into the PR14, OFWAT funding approval process.
Simon Coombs, Business Development Director for Capula, said: “After an initial assessment of Severn Trent’s current ICA estate and processes, we are bringing ideas and experience from across a wide range of industries to help agree a high-level direction for Severn Trent Water.
“We are now working in joint teams with its staff to rationalise and prioritise the identified initiatives into a coherent programme that achieves the right pace of change and investment in ICA over the remainder of AMP5 and for AMP6.”
David Essex, Water Strategy Manager for Severn Trent, added: “Capula is already behaving as a strong partner to Severn Trent Water. It understands our business aims and is bringing good ideas and experience, which will help us to achieve our business objectives.”
