Select Solutions, a division of Victoria’s largest diversified energy business AusNet Services, has won a three-year contract valued at $1.5 million to provide a range of services to Victorian water authority, Coliban Water.

Starting in September, Select Solutions’ team will undertake water flow meter validation, replacement and maintenance along with other specialised asset services for Coliban Water’s operations in North-Central Victoria.

Select Solutions General Manager, John Kelso, said that this is a milestone project for the company, which has won water contracts in Victoria and New South Wales since the acquisition of Schultz Plumbing.

“In the last 12 months, we have successfully integrated Schultz Plumbing into our water asset service and maintenance division, complementing our existing electricity and gas divisions,” Mr Kelso said.

“By increasing our range of services and resources, we now provide water service solutions for a range of customers, from commercial and industrial, to councils, utilities and governments, including Yarra Valley Water.

“We’re excited to win the three-year contract and look forward to working with Coliban Water to manage the maintenance and validation of customer and bulk flow meters,” he said.

Under the contract, Select Solutions will manage the industrial/commercial flow meters in key towns such as Bendigo, Echuca, Kyabram and the bulk/system meters used for management of the water supply in the Loddon, Wimmera, Goulburn or Murray Water supply systems.

Select Solutions now proudly boasts the services of 75 qualified plumbers and with 11 apprentices as part of 700 office employees, positioning the company well to service any contract large or small.
