Thames Water has signed an order with Ford for 900 new vans over the next three years.

The deal includes Fiesta Van, Transit Connect, Transit Custom, Transit and Ranger models, with each vehicle equipped and liveried at the Southall workshops of Bri-Stor Systems.

The first batch of 223 vans has already been delivered to the company’s bases in London and south-east England.

The tender process was measured by whole-life costs, with Ford meeting all Thames Water’s vehicle requirements. Stephen Gafson, Ford Direct Sales Manager, said, “We are delighted to have won this new contract with Thames Water, and to have come out on top in the company’s tender process.”

Michelle Nasr, Thames Water’s fleet and transportation manager, said: “Our fleet of 1,300 commercial vehicles is absolutely vital to the smooth running of our operations, and in maintaining the flow of 2,600 million litres of drinking water every day to our customers.”
