Thames Water flows with 900 new Ford vans

Thames Water has ordered 900 new vans from Ford to be delivered over the next three years – a mix of Fiesta Vans, Transit Connects, Transit Customs, Transits and Rangers.

The 223 vans have now been delivered to the company’s sites in London and south-east England, having been equipped and liveried at the Southall workshops of Bri-Stor Systems.

Michelle Nasr, Thames Water’s fleet and transportation manager, says that the tender process looked at whole-life costs, with Ford meeting all Thames Water’s vehicle requirements.

“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,” she states.
