|An average of eighty percent of the costs of a water and waste water utility is originated by it’s infrastructure and independent from the transport volume. Therefore the infrastructure management not only plays a key part for every water utility, it is also decisive for its overall efficiency. SWMI specializes in the long-term management of this core area.
SWMIs management concept follows the principles of maintenance and effective increase of value instead of simple cost-cutting and exploits unrealized potentials for efficiency.
SWMIs management concept turns the water and waste water infrastructure into an engine of the socioeconomic development ensuring the generation of a clear and quantifiable benefit.
On the basis of stable key partnerships with the service providers, manufacturers and suppliers elite, SWMI is able to choose the optimum - that means efficient and sustainable - combination of services and products for operation, planning, management, maintenance, extension and repair of the infrastructure. Even the local water utilities become a SWMI service provider under that scheme.
