Tim Redfern, Amey’s Managing Director Defence said:

“Heating and hot water failures across the Air estate have always been a problem, but with the implementation of Programme Hydro, we’re delighted that RAF personnel are already benefitting from the improvements that have been made which wouldn’t have been possible prior to this project. The aim is to not only improve the living environment for Service personnel, but to reduce heating and hot water failures by 80%. And where possible, include zero carbon technologies to support Air Infra to meet the Government’s 2050 net zero target. This first year is widely viewed as an unqualified success with effective collaboration seen to be a key part in delivering this programme.”
