Morgan Est wins 38m Thames Water tunnelling deal and chooses
i-MO for their datacomms.

Morgan EstMorgan Est is one of the UK's leading providers of infrastructure services. It is part of top 10 UK construction group Morgan Sindall plc, a FTSE-250 company.

Following extensive trials of the i-MO (intelligent mobile office) system at its head office in Rugby, Morgan Est has now installed the unit at a site in Honor Oak where a major tunnelling project for Thames Water is in progress.

The project is being managed by Morgan Est’s tunnelling business unit and will deliver an extension to the existing Thames Water Ring Main consisting of 4.7km of 2.5m diameter tunnel and two shafts up to 60m deep.

An essential element of the project is the ability for site based staff to have data links with head office corporate systems at project start-up, when traditional BT links are not available.

The installation of the i-MO system makes it possible for these links to be established utilising access to the mobile networks via two data cards built into a rugged P.C. server.


Derrick Llewellyn, Morgan Est IT systems manager, said:


“The i-MO unit has enabled IT services to be provided from day one. As i-MO is a ‘managed service’ supplied by EMS, there are little additional support demands on the IT department.”

The i-MO system can access GPRS, EDGE, 3G and increasingly HSDPA cellular networks.
