REFURBISHMENT OF EXISTING TREATMENT
SYSTEMS FOR INCREASED CAPACITY, IMPROVED PERFORMANCE AND REDUCED LIFETIME COSTS
Water plcs and private customers in the wastewater industry are often faced with making decisions on installation of expensive wastewater treatment plants and have to take account of the operating costs.
The total lifetime costs, therefore, become the basis of many decisions which reflect the lowest lifetime cost over 20 years. It is possible to extend this concept beyond the 20-year lifetime cost and evaluate the cost over a longer period of, say, 40 years, by taking account of a complete overhaul or refurbishment after the initial 20 years.
Environmental impact - refurbishment would enable the plant to be modernised to improve treatment levels, improve efficiency and reduce the need to dispose of large quantities of equipment if the work were to be totally replaced.
