WIA Awards

Thames Water has been shortlisted eight times in five different categories at the Water Industry Achievement Awards.


Organised by WET News and Water & Wastewater Treatment magazines, the awards “celebrate and reward outstanding innovation in the UK water industry”.


“Inundated with outstandingly high quality entries”, judges have named Thames Water's Logistics Management Centre (LMC) in the shortlist for both the carbon reduction initiative and team of the year categories. Created in April 2016, the LMC allows the company to reduce its carbon footprint while delivering enhanced resilience and service to customers.


Thames Water is also a double finalist in the partnership of the year category for its wastewater customer solution centre in Slough with Lanes and the Infrastructure Alliance.


The company is one of five finalists hoping to be the water resource management initiative of the year, which it won last year, while the phenomenal scale and scope of the Thames Water and AMK £250m upgrade work at Deephams sewage works is up for team of the year award with the LMC. Its work with Boulting Group has been recognised in the carbon reduction category.


Also in the running is the Enfield Council and Friends of Firs Farm project, a new wetlands development and cycle path supported by Thames Water, in the community project of the year category.


Thames Water spokesman Stuart White said: “It’s fantastic for the company and all of these committed teams to be recognised in such a prestigious awards line-up, which is so well respected by the industry. All will be hoping to bring home the awards in May.”


Winners will be announced at a ceremony on Tuesday, May 23 at The Vox, Birmingham.
