Edinburgh water retailer to supply Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton airports as part of AGS Airports Ltd agreement
Edinburgh-based water retailer Business Stream has been appointed to supply water and waste water services to AGS Airports Ltd, which operates Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton airports.
It says the two Scottish airports are renewing their contracts while Southampton is a new contract following the opening of the English retail water market in April.
The contracts will run for three years and will allow the airports to benefit from Business Stream’s dedicated account management service, providing day-to-day expert support and 24/7 emergency assistance, if required.
Glasgow Airport’s new three-year arrangement will also involve the installation of automated meter readings to track water consumption and leak detection surveys to help reduce the airport’s water use.
Maureen Jamieson, Group Head of Procurement, said: “Business Stream’s services and account management support allow us to manage the airport’s water systems smoothly and efficiently. As an organisation committed to reducing our impact on the environment, we’re also taking advantage of their technology and expertise to identify and manage opportunities for cutting water use.”
James Cardwell-Moore, Commercial Director at Business Stream, said: “Competition in the non-domestic retail market is increasing rapidly, encouraging us as a business to continually improve the service we provide to our customers. We’re delighted that both Glasgow and Aberdeen International Airports will be continuing their partnership with us and that they’ll now be joined by Southampton.”
Scotland’s non-domestic market, which covers all premises across private and public sector organisations, opened to competition in April 2008. Since then, Business Stream customers have saved more than £160m on their water bills.
Business Stream expanded its operation in April 2016 when it started competing in the new £2.5bn English water market, which has enabled 1.2 million businesses and public bodies in England to choose their water supplier for the first time.
