Water company's asset management gets the thumbs up
31 October 2016
South East Water has retained its coveted British Standard asset management certificate and for the second year running sailed through an external audit with no non-conformities.
Commonly referred to as PAS 55, the British Standard is produced by the Institute of Asset Management and recognised as a benchmark for how physical assets and infrastructure are best managed. It covers everything from design, acquisition or construction through to operation, maintenance, renewal and ultimate disposal of a company’s assets.
Andy Ball, South East Water Head of Asset Management, said: “We invest hundreds of millions of pounds in our assets and infrastructure to deliver high quality drinking water to 2.1m customers and commissioning and maintaining our water supply and distribution systems is a complex job.
“The renewal of our PAS 55 certificate is a seal of approval that the approach we take is working for the ultimate benefit of our customers.”
