  1. Project Development:

    Project development phase includes undertaking feasibility studies to understand the viability of the project and preparation of a Detailed Project Report (DPR), to finalize all details with regard to technology selection and costing to enable project structuring, financing, procurement and implementation.

    IWL is always technology and equipment neutral. The choice of technology and equipment is based on IWL’s assessment of the nature of the problem and the most efficient technology application available to achieve the desired outcomes. This technical application is balanced with the economic and financial interests of the project, to maintain the long term sustainable viability of the investment.
  1. Project Financing and Risk Management:

    IWL performs financial analysis, evaluates and arranges means of financing (both equity and debt) and structures the project such that there are robust and viable revenue streams to make the project self-sustaining and viable in the long term. Comprehensive analysis of risks and their allocation resulting in development of proper contractual framework to facilitate the operations of the project are also examined at this stage. Based on the project structure, IWL would prepare the required legal documentation and contracts for enabling financing and risk sharing by the various stakeholders of the project.

    IWL obtains funding for projects from the most cost effective source. In this, where available, it also assists clients in obtaining Government grants and subsidies.

  2. Project Structuring:

    A usual practice in IWL in the development of projects is to structure projects on the basis of forming a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). This provides a highly focused and dedicated approach to the implementation of the project. In the case of BOOT projects, there are examples of New Tirupur Area Development Corporation (NTADCL) and IL&FS Paradip Refinery Water limited (IPRWL). Where third parties are involved, IL&FS Water associates with them on a Project Development Partnership basis, through the structure of dedicated SPVs. For instance in Tirupur, for the Textile effluent treatment project, three SPVs were formed by the industry covering nine Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs). Similar is the case in Ambur where three CETPs were brought together under the umbrella of one SPV – AEDOL (Ambur Economic Development Organization Ltd).

  3. Construction and Implementation Supervision:

    IWL undertakes construction services and provides project management services by supervising the respective contractors appointed for the Project and monitor the progress of construction up to completion of the Project. IWL can recommend necessary remedial action on a periodic basis and implement such recommendations as accepted by the client.

  4. Operation and Maintenance:

    IWL can provide O&M services for the project and assure acceptable service levels to the client. IWL will follow life cycle cost basis approach towards O&M to deliver cost effective solution to the client.

    While taking up O&M contracts, in order to bring long term efficiencies to the functioning of the assets, IWL also undertakes evaluation of existing systems and then implements the refurbishment of the same where required.
Expertise in Effluent Treatment Projects

Industries like Textiles, Leather tannery, Paper, Chemicals, Coal Washeries etc are all water intensive and also generate large volumes of effluent. Many of these industries are adopting water-recycling systems due to environmental regulations and scarcity of water. As treating the effluent for recycling is faced with significant challenges, opportunities exist for implementing such projects.

To help the industries in complying with the necessary Pollution Control Board Norms, IWL has built up a considerable in – house expertise for implementing Effluent treatment projects. IL&FS Water Business Group is currently developing a number of new initiatives. These projects are in the water management, water conservation/reuse and environmental compliance areas. Once implemented and commissioned all these projects would represent ‘benchmark’ projects in the effluent treatment sector. Some of these projects are
  • Textile industrial effluent treatment project on a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) Basis at Tirupur, Tamilnadu for the Textile units at a cost of Rs. 4500 mn
  • Tannery Lather effluent treatment project on a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) Basis at Ambur/Vaniyambadi, Tamilnadu for the Leather Tannery units at a cost of Rs. 900 mn
  • Implementation of integrated textile wastewater management project for textile clusters at Sanganer
