Product lifecycles over recent years are becoming shorter and shorter due to technology development and the demand for more sustainable products. If you have an existing production process or are looking into building one that has a treated water system whose utilisation may be shorter than 10 years and it may have a variable capacity due to your products expected production requirements you may wish to consider a Multi-Year rental rather than investment.
This would be flexible to meet your short term and future uncertain replace and may reduce both your operational and investment costs.
In the event an investment is required in a water treatment plant or an upgrade and this is not the optimal area for the business to get the highest return on its valuable capital a Multi-Year rental can be provided under a ‘Pay as you go’ flexible long term agreement.
This will enable you to meet your treated water replace from your operations budget whilst not investing in a utility. Your capital may then be invested in your core business which should provide a greater return.
If you require a water treatment system for use for less than 5 years duration then renting may be the optimum solution.
This short term time period allows you to meet your budgets without burdening your project with expensive investment costs which are normally spread over a 10 year lifetime. Contract may be flexible and easily extended within these time periods to match your needs and requirements.
Optimising your existing equipment or replacing a plant which is now becoming obsolete and inefficient may be an option to consider to enable you to have a more efficient and cost effective system.
Renting a water treatment plant under a Multi-Year agreement may allow you to do this in the short term without the need for investment and allow you to either integrate complementary technology or simply replace those which are old and inefficient. This may provide you with an immediate pay back and be self financing.
Your current water treatment plant may be limited by the amount of treated water it can produce to meet your production requirements. This may be due to peaks in demand which are due to production volumes or external issues such as the weather or changes in feed water supplies that may simply not allow your plant to keep up with demand.
This could last from days to weeks to months. To supplement your fixed plant a water treatment plant provided under a Multi-Year rental agreement may be the best option to manage these unpredictable periods.
Sourcing a water treatment plant under a Multi-Year service agreement provides you with a choice versus the traditional procurement model of spreading your cost of investment through your operations budget, along with the maintenance, consumables, backup and support you will receive.
Utilizing the expertise of renting through a reliable supplier allows you to focus on your core activity with the peace of mind this valuable resource is being provided from a responsible supplier according to your needs. This may be for a new project or simply to replace an existing asset.
If your water treatment plant is experiencing reliability issues and it’s becoming more and more difficult to predict its performance and operation, choosing to rent either a pre-treatment or post treatment system may be the correct strategy to help achieve the reliability and stability you require without the need of significant investment.
This may be applied for both a short or long term Multi-Year solution depending on your needs and business investment cycles.
Raw water is becoming more and more a valuable resource. Optimising its use is both a cost and sustainable issue. Renting an alternative technology to replace or complete your existing assets may enable you to achieve both of these requirements in a simple and reliable package.
There may also be the opportunity, with minimal investment, to switch from a costly or scare water supply to a lower cost more abundant one. This may require additional treatment which could be provided through a Multi-Year rental agreement which may expedite both savings and security of supply with the requirement of a minimal amount of capital investment.
