Heath Lambert wins Thames Water deal

Independent insurance broker Heath Lambert has won the insurance tender for the London Tideway Tunnels project.

The London Tideway Tunnels project is an initiative of Thames Water, and is aimed at delivering a significantly reduced quantity of untreated sewage being discharged into the Thames after rainfall.

For 7km from Abbey Mills to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works (STW), the largest treatment plant in Europe, the Lee Tunnel will run.

The Lee Tunnel will intercept an estimated 16m tonnes of raw sewage that would otherwise enter the Thames, half the annual total.

Permission for the tunnel is pending, and building is planned to commence next year.

Retail Clients and Development MD Alan Pratten has expressed his delight at winning the tender, particularly given the longterm significance of the project.

A wide range of Heath Lambert personnel are involved, including those from the Major Accounts, Environmental, Terrorism, Project Risk, Liability, PI and Construction divisions.

Nick Fairweather, insurance manager for Thames Water, has explained that Heath Lambert was awarded the contract due to the firm’s comprehensive knowledge of the project’s details.

The London Tideway Tunnels project is not the first major infrastructure in the capital Heath Lambert has become involved in.

Halfway through last year the firm was named as the Crossrail broker in a 10 year contract with the £15.9bn rail project.
