Aging networks confront water companies with the need to take investment allocation decisions to ensure that water distribution networks are future-proof. With the KWR-developed Mains Investment Planning concept, companies have a tool in hand that provides objective and clear insight for good investment planning. Mains Investment Planning is part of the Watershare Suite of tools.
Quick insight into investment for mains replacement
The Mains Investment Planning tool calculates the investment requirements for the replacement of water mains on the basis of the expected remaining life of different groups of water mains. By combining this prognosis with that for the distribution network as a whole, the program provides quick insight into the extent of the mains that need to be replaced, the period of the replacement and the investments involved.
