Amey has just secured a new metering contract with npower worth £35m over the next five years. The win will see Amey providing both gas and electricity metering installation and maintenance services across the North West of England, Wales and Scotland.

 Amey began providing electricity metering services for npower in the North West in 1996. This contract award further increases Amey’s geographical coverage and will include new smart metering installations.

Mel Ewell, Amey's chief executive said: "We have worked with npower for almost 20 years. Through our National Skill Academy for Power training centre we have already placed 80 employees and this contract will help us extend the training programme further. Simon Stacey, MD of Energy Services at npower added: "The metering market is very dynamic with a lot of change coming up in the next few years through the national roll-out of smart meters. It is important that we know our customers are in safe and professional hands and Amey has a track record of delivering safe, efficient and reliable services.”
