Key Benefits of the Water Resilience Solution Suite

Tangible Benefits

  • By taking a more holistic approach, significant capital investments can be avoided, for example by delivering plans to pre-defined risk appetite, more robust outage management plans or exploiting asset connectivity. Capital savings can run to tens of millions of pounds/dollars, depending on the type of investment and time horizon considered.
  • Whilst maintaining or even improving desired operational and service outcomes, a systemic approach typically yields between 5 and 15% reduction in operational expenditure, particularly with regards to maintenance, energy and labour costs.
  • Cost to serve analysis has many financially beneficial applications, including the business case justification for the replacement of strategically important assets facing high impact, low probability risks.
  • Our unique, blended solutions consider the implications of both gas quality and gas pressure within combined operational and investment models, providing the lowest cost viable solution.

Non-Financial Benefits

  • Our Strategic Energy solutions drive Board Room agendas to evaluate a range of opportunities and risks, as well as providing assurance to investors and other senior stakeholders regarding different risk mitigation strategies under consideration.
  • The ability to quickly run scenarios to reflect real world events is proving invaluable to organisations suffering sudden, unplanned outages, enabling them to adapt quickly and deliver the next most optimal plan.
