Treatment Plant Acquisition

With operations currently across Queensland, ACT and Western Australia, SunWater is positioned to expand its portfolio through the acquisition of treatment plants that are complimentary to its operations.

SunWater works closely with local government to thoroughly investigate potential acquisitions of both treatment plant infrastructure and on-going operations and maintenance.

Build-Own-Operate (BOO) Contracts

SunWater offers clients the opportunity of establishing a Build-Own-Operate (BOO) contract; taking responsibility for the design, supply and operation of the water treatment system on behalf of the client.

Typically based on quality and quantity guarantees, the BOO contracts offer long term arrangements whereby SunWater own and operate systems and provide treated water to local government on a cost-per-litre basis.

Due to the vast number of technologies and treatment solutions available, SunWater investigates and supplies optimum technological and economical solutions. This ensures the lowest total treatment cost, maximum on-line operation and guaranteed treated water quality.

A BOO contract also allows clients to focus on their core business while still maintaining strategic control of their operations.
