Wave wins water and wastewater deal for petrol station firm MRH's England sites

Petrol station and forecourt retail company, MRH, has signed a three-year deal with national water retailer Wave to supply water and wastewater services which Wave anticipated will deliver cost savings of “at least £67,000.”

Wave said MRH has reduced its water and wastewater costs by £23,000 at its Scottish sites over the past three years under Wave’s water-saving services. “The new contract will extend this efficiency-led approach to the whole MRH network, delivering those financial and environmental benefits across all sites,” the supplier said.

MRH owns more than 489 sites in England and Scotland, most of which are branded Esso, BP or Shell. Its forecourt network also includes 336 Costa Express outlets, and 304 Hurst's stores.

Robert Swann from MRH said: “Wave has helped us make significant operational cost savings across our Scottish sites, so the company was the natural choice for consolidating our water and wastewater supply needs across the whole of our network.

“We anticipate considerable time-saving and management benefits in addition to the efficient service and competitive pricing we know Wave can deliver.”

The number of sites included in the contract will grow as MRH adds new locations to its network. The projected £67,000 in cost savings is also predicted to increase.
