Training forum for Severn Trent Water Delivery Partner

MCS Control Systems recently held a training forum for their Severn Trent Water Delivery Partner – NMCNomenca. The day covered all elements of pre-requisite design information needed and the importance of early contractor involvement. Comments from the day included “A forum made us ALL realize the challenges and benefits of working together as an integrated delivery team and has been a great platform to allow engineers and designers from both companies to meet face to face and develop more efficient ways of working together.”

Annual Certification and Calibration Testing

This month saw successful annual MOTs (certification and calibration) for the Mobile Dosing Trailers (MDT) for Derby, Staverton and Stoke areas. This image shows one of the Mobile Dosing Trailers – which are designed, manufactured and produced right here in the Midlands.They support our clients with emergency dosing following pipe bursts and general localised pipe modifications to critical supplies.

Collaborative Certification to BS11000

To help us reinforce our approach to collaborative working with our key client, MCS Control Systems has embarked on the certification route working with NMC Nomenca for the STW framework. We are working with NMC Nomenca to help them achieve certification to the standard BS11000 – the certification demonstrates collaborative working throughout the supply chain.

As part of this process Stewart Foster, Framework Director, and Simon Button, Group Support Manager, will provide detailed support on the various working groups which will establish the various activities and procedural changes required to meet this standard. This will be delivered through a number of collaborative workshops.

This is an exciting development within our existing relationship and will provide significant benefits to all of the collaborative partners which are brought in from the whole supply chain.
