The Dutch company, which has its UK headquarters in Leeds, said the work is on the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (Scada) scheme, which relates to monitoring and control systems.

Lawrence Hughes, group director of water and energy at Grontmij, said: "It is fantastic to be appointed to such an important and high profile project by Thames Water.

"Winning a further SCADA replacement programme is demonstrative of our knowledge, expertise and impressive track record in the water and utilities sector."

Grontmij has been appointed for two years.

Its team, combined with Mace, will be based in Thames Water's Reading offices, peaking at around 20 employees, with Grontmij providing two thirds of the staff.
