As the impact and consequences of the new Totex economic model – an aggregated examination of both capital and operational expenditure – to the UK Water Utility are becoming more fully understood, it is recognised that new approaches will be required to meet the newly combined Capital and Operational expenditure considerations.
Martin Grant, the Lipp UK Marketing Manager said, “We recognise that the new changes in the UK Water Utility market require new solutions. We have developed and installed cost effective tank lining solutions for the German market over a number of years. The Lipp spiral tank system has proven highly effective for increasing the operational life and capacity of older tanks, without the need for time consuming and expensive demolition and rebuild.”

The tank rehabilitation solution offered by Lipp provides a strong long-term economic solution. Lipp’s tanks have been in operation in Germany since 1972, with many tanks giving continuous service for 40 years or more. This 40 year timeframe is one that is being considered by the Water Utilities as the new operational benchmark for TOTEX calculations – a consideration that is new to the UK market.
Martin Grant, also commented, “Given the extensive experience that Lipp have in the European Water Utility market, we are confident that many of the water market solutions we offer, such as the tank refurbishment system, will provide proven, cost effective, solutions for the UK Water Utilities as well.”
