The accolade was presented during a glittering Awards Ceremony held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Heythrop Park, and hosted by BBC News Presenter, Mary Rhodes.  The award was one of eight presented on the night.

Bedford Pump’s received their Award for their work on a Fish Friendly pumping scheme which saved Stakeholders £3M.  Bedford Pumps’ Fish Friendly pumps successfully pass eels and fish in compliance with the EU Eel Regulations.  For this scheme the company worked closely with Peter Brett Associates to evolve the civil engineering and pipeline design at Webb’s Hole Pumping Station to carefully mitigate damage to eels and fish whilst at the same time delivering stakeholders £3M in capital savings against their national framework estimate.  The station, which also includes the creation of some bird habitat, is the first of its kind to fully embrace the regulations from concept through to commissioning.
