Wales & West Utilities (WWU) - formerly part of National Grid Transco - was launched on 1st June 2005. Valued at £1.2 billion, it is a regulated gas distribution business with around 35,000 km of gas distribution pipelines covering Wales and the South West of England. With its main offices at Celtic Springs, Newport, the company covers 1/6th of the UK and its catchment area has a population of 7.4 million.
WWU is owned by the Cheung Kong Group.
WWU moved to its new offices at Celtic Springs in June 2006 where around 380 administrative staff are based, providing major infrastructure services including Connections, where all design and quotation activities for gas connections are now managed.
Graham Edwards is Chief Executive of WWU: "This business has come a long way since its launch in June 2005. We have had quite a few changes and implemented a number of new initiatives in the past twelve months but one thing that has not changed is our commitment to safety both for our own operations and for the people we serve."
