Retail market: Ofwat grants more WSSL licences

Advanced Demand Side Management Ltd (ADSM) and Peel Water Ltd are the latest companies to be granted Water Supply and Sewerage Licences (WSSL) by Ofwat ahead of retail market opening on 1st April.

The water industry regulator has already granted 49 new operator licences to more than 25 retailers.

Leading utility management specialists ADSM provide a wide range of utility management solutions from energy and water consultancy to complete utility bill management. The firm has been working for many of the UK’s largest organisations since 1992 in both the public and private sector, including local authorities, educational establishments, BAA, Eton College, the Royal Parks and Barts NHS Trust.

After market opening Peel Water Ltd is planning to extend the services it currently provides to its existing customer base of large water users within the Peel Group. In its application to Ofwat for a WSSL the firm said that over the next 3 years its aim is “to carry on opportunistically acquiring large customers from within the Peel group and select 3rd party partners.”

Peel Utilities already offers a range of water services, varying from its regulated water supply business at MediaCityUK in Manchester, to a range of water abstraction and discharge opportunities across the Peel portfolio of canals, rivers and docks. Peel currently supplies these services to developments including Intu Trafford Centre, Robin Hood Airport, Liverpool International Business Park, MediaCityUK and Trafford Quays.
