Though the water sector is engulfed with challenges and issues, in the context of the current water position in India, opportunities exist for development of water infrastructure projects. A project developer working in this area in India would require vision, initiative, and energy to come up with innovative and intelligent solutions to water asset management issues tailored to suit the local and specific requirements.

IWL has a vast resource pool with a wide range of experience and proficiency in the areas of design, engineering and finance relating to all areas of water sector including water supply, sanitation. It has an in-house team, from diverse backgrounds to provide a complete array of services necessary for the successful completion of projects.

IWL has identified opportunities in various segments of the water and waste water sector, which include the following
  1. Bulk water supply: Opportunities exists for Augmentation of Drinking Water Supply System, Refurbishment, and Operations and Maintenance
  2. Industrial Water Reuse and Effluent Treatment: Environmental regulations and scarcity of water are pushing industries to adopt water recycling techniques. Hence opportunities exist for recycling the industrial waste water/ effluent for reuse or to comply with the discharge norms of the regulatory authorities
  3. Urban Drinking Water Distribution: In order to improve operational efficiency in distribution of water, opportunities exists in Billing and Collection, Arresting distribution losses, Reduction in Non Revenue Water and Operations and Maintenance of the water distribution systems
  4. Urban Sewage Management: Due to rapid urbanization and population growth, management of sewage has become a critical obligation of the Government. Off late, the Government has started partnering with the private sector in the development and management of Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs). Hence this sector provides immense opportunities for development and maintenance of STPs to comply with the discharge norms of Pollution Control Board and also for reuse of the treated sewage for industrial use
  5. Desalination: Due to scarcity of water, opportunities exists in the coastal areas for treatment of sea water to fulfil domestic and industrial requirements
In each of the above segments IWL has considerable expertise in providing end to end solutions to projects. Projects in the above mentioned sectors can be executed on Build Own Operate Transfer Basis (BOOT) through Joint Development on a Public Private Partnership (PPP) basis, or on the basis of management contracts.
