Operations Services


Total Water Management

Our Total Water Management Solutions comprise the management of water and wastewater across the production cycle including incoming water, process water applications and wastewater.

The service is offered to our clients on the following basis:

Fully Outsourced Management of all Utilities
We provide a full-outsourced service whereby we take total accountability for the performance of the utilities that we operate and provide all technical, mechanical and process input, supply all site-staff and associated management, carry out maintenance on all relevant plant and equipment, and manage chemical supply and waste disposal. Our site teams are supported by our hub-based technical specialists as well as a data analytics reporting tool designed to provide our clients with a strategic approach to total water management across their sites.

Remote Operations
Automation provides the opportunity to manage cost through limiting onsite personnel whilst still providing site with process optimisation support from our central process control hub, ensuring that the clients performance and cost saving requirements are consistently met.

On-Site Management Supervision of our Client’s Team
Where clients employ their own teams, we can provide daily supervision to the site staff to ensure that utilities are operating at optimal performance. Our site supervisors have access to and support from our hub-based technical specialists. Daily, weekly and monthly reporting is developed on a client-specific basis and is drawn from our data analytics reporting tool.

Remote Technical Support/Supervision (Advisory)
Should clients only require technical support, one of our Technical Specialists will be assigned to provide support and guidance to the client’s site-specific operations team. Typically, the Technical Specialist will visit the site at agreed intervals for audit and on-site training purposes, in addition to having remote access to view the site’s data and advise accordingly. Reporting is developed on a client-specific basis.
