Leicon Notley awarded major Busselton Water contracts

Two of Busselton Water’s most significant infrastructure projects are a step closer with the appointment of engineering construction company Leicon Notley as a key partner.

The Western Australian owned and operated company will work with Busselton Water to install new filters at its Water Treatment Plant 1 site on Kent Street, and to construct a booster pump station at its Plant 8 site to assist with the supply of water to the new airport and residential areas in Yalyalup. Together, the two construction contracts are valued at over $2 million.

Both projects will substantially increase the durability of Busselton’s water supply and cater for future growth of the region.

Busselton Water CEO Chris Elliott said Leicon Notley emerged as the strongest contender following the two open tender processes – backed by its strong track record of delivering high quality work within the WA water industry and a very robust background in safety.

“Leicon Notley has the experience and ready capacity to undertake projects of this size and nature. Coupled with its competitive price, the company’s capacity to perform the work, outstanding safety systems, technical experience and skilled personnel was an attractive proposition,” said Mr Elliott.

“As an organisation which strongly values safety and has strived for our gold star safety record, it is important to Busselton Water that the companies we partner with have similar values.  Impressively, Leicon Notley has a remarkable safety record with no on-site lost time injury of 15 years,” he added.

Founded more than 30 years ago, Leicon Notley is a Perth-based engineering construction company with a particular competence in piping, pumping and pipelines; water supply; and management of associated civil, mechanical, electrical and controls works.

Leicon Notley Director, Geoff Leivers said the company was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Busselton Water.

“I’ve holidayed in Busselton for 40 years and identify strongly with the region.  I’m delighted that Leicon Notley is able to be part of the improvements to Busselton’s water supply and, more broadly, the sustainable growth of the region.

“We look forward to working with the Busselton Water team and its team of local subcontractors and suppliers,” he added.

Leicon Notley is moving plant, equipment and personnel to both sites and early works have commenced.  Work on both projects is expected to be complete by the end of December.
