JN Bentley secures new contract with the Coal Authority

Civil engineering and construction company JN Bentley has secured a new multi-million pound contract with the Coal Authority.

The four-year framework agreement has an expected value of £2.5 million to around £4 million a year to JN Bentley, and will see us design and construct new mine water treatment schemes across the UK.

The contract is the third framework JN Bentley will have delivered with the Coal Authority, having completed a number of successful mine water treatment schemes under the Authority’s ‘ENVision I’ and ‘ENVision II’ agreements since 2004.

Previous works with the Authority have seen us prevent iron solids from entering Britain’s watercourses and protect a number of the nation’s drinking water aquifers from pollution from rising mine waters.

We also worked with the Authority to build their first mine water treatment schemes to address pollution from metal mines, at Force Crag in the Lake District and at Saltburn Gill in North Yorkshire.

The new contract will see us work closely not only with the Authority, but Severn Trent Services too, who have been awarded a contract to operate and maintain the Authority’s 82 mine water treatment schemes, pumping stations and mine gas facilities, plus new schemes that will be built in the future.

This partnership will focus on continuous improvement through the design of innovative and sustainable solutions. Partnership working will take place from concept through to the construction and operation of each mine water treatment scheme.

Speaking at the official contract signing, JN Bentley Operations Director responsible for the framework, Angus Ridge, said, “We are pleased to extend our working relationship with the Coal Authority into 2015 and beyond.

“In the ten years we have worked with the Coal Authority we have developed a strong collaborative partnership, and look forward to working with them and Severn Trent Services to deliver schemes under the Confluence framework that offer best value through both construction and operation – working safely and innovatively in order to achieve this.”

Simon Reed, Chief Operating Officer, Coal Authority commented: “The procurement process has been extremely competitive and we received many high quality proposals. We are delighted to announce that we will be combining our expertise with that of Severn Trent Services and JN Bentley to continue to resolve the impacts of mining on the environment.

“Our programmes for addressing water pollution from both coal and metal mines will be enhanced as we work together to deliver innovation and schemes with strong economic and environmental benefits.”

Kyle has progressed well through JN Bentley’s apprenticeship course, successfully passing his Diploma in Construction. His attitude to work has continually been praised by colleagues who also commented on his positive involvement in morning briefings, commitment to health and safety and his ability to set a good example to the rest of site.

Kyle said: “I was really surprised when I heard I’d won. I knew Paul was due to come to our site, but didn’t think it would be for this!

“I’ve enjoyed my apprenticeship; it was good spending time in the yard and then getting out on site too.”

Well done Kyle – well deserved.

About JN Bentley’s apprenticeship scheme

In November 2012 JN Bentley welcomed nine new apprentices on to its latest apprenticeship scheme which runs for approximately two years.

The scheme is designed 100% in-house which enables our apprentices to obtain additional ’tickets’ and experience that is directly linked to the type of work JN Bentley is involved with, alongside learning about JN Bentley’s core competencies and values.
