WATER UTILITIES AND INVESTMENTS

PROJECT FINANCE STRUCTURED SCHEMES

Metito Utilities has extensive experience in developing operational water assets under BOT, BOO, full concessions and PPP models. With sound financial capability and an appetite for investing in water assets, MUL plans, designs, builds, and operates world-class water facilities.

GREENFIELD PROJECTS

MUL has extensive experience in developing new operational water and wastewater assets from the ground up under BOT, BOO, full concessions and PPP models.

Greenfield projects are designed and planned with careful consideration to our client’s needs over the life of a contract. Projects are structured to cater for the necessary technical and commercial requirements, allowing for an optimum solution to be presented to clients. On PPP’s, Metito works closely with various government ministries and stakeholders to structure a project in line with master plans for the sector, taking into account key operational considerations including demand/supply models, downstream network capability, and other financial considerations such as affordability analysis and financial impact on sector. This ensures projects are socially, environmentally, economically and financially sustainable and that they can play an enabler role for the development and evolution of the whole sector.

MUL’s strong relationships with key financial institutions and decision makers enables the company to provide the most efficient financing structure that can best suit the needs of each project uniquely.

BOT & PPP Investments

With strong shareholders, Metito Utilities or its Consortium can draw on their own equity supplemented with bank debt to take responsibility for the complete financial requirements of projects it undertakes. Metito plays a leading role in project development guiding the project through financial close and ultimately successful commercial operation. Under these projects, the company oversees all assets including; design, construction and commissioning activities. Sample projects:

  • Kigali Bulk Water Supply PPP, Kigali, Rwanda
  • Dubai Investment Park Full Concession Wastewater Treatment Plant, Dubai-UAE
Full Concessions

Moving further down the value chain, Metito Utilities reinforces its leading position as a complete provider of water utilities by offering a total solution to its clients, beyond the scope of treatment. With Full Concessions, Metito offers a wide spectrum of services to its end users that not only include the provision of water supply or wastewater treatment, but also the responsibility of operating and managing water distribution and sewage collection networks, including billing and collection of individual end users and customer service. Example Projects:

  • Nabq Bay BOO Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant, Sharm El Sheikh- Egypt

BROWNFIELD PROJECTS

Metito Utilities’ highly skilled experts are equipped with forward-looking management techniques and a proven track record in improving operational efficiency and optimizing existing resource structure. Metito’s experts are able to assess existing water assets, recommend world-class solutions and execute scalable project expansions and revamps, and apply service on existing facility under a long-term contract.

Under a Takeover-Operate-Transfer (TOT) model, MUL conducts extensive assessments of the current state of the assets before putting in place an overall lifecycle plan, outlining the necessary investment for a full rehabilitation. MUL then undertakes the responsibility for raising the necessary financing requirements and implementing the rehabilitation plan with a view for improving system efficiency and delivering optimum operational performance.

Clients, in turn, receive a world class operational service governed by performance based approach. Clients further benefit from offloading such assets from their books, allowing Metito to take full responsibility of planning, expanding, financing, and operating these brownfield projects.

STRATEGIC EQUITY ACQUISITIONS

Metito Utilities has successfully undertaken strategic equity acquisitions to expand its global presence and leading market share. Through such transactions, the company is able to expand its global presence and accelerate its growth into emerging and pan emerging markets with support from local talents who are better aligned with local cultures, legal frameworks and market gaps.

Metito Utilities acquired 51% stake in Berlinwasser China Holdings (BCH) from original shareholders Berlinwasser International in 2008. At this time, BCH only had 2 running concessions.

In 2011, Metito Utilities acquired the remainder of the shares for BCH to become 100% owned subsidiary of Metito Utilities. BCH now owns 11 concessions and long term O&M contracts in China serving the cities of Nanchang (3.9 million inhabitants) and Hefei (4.9 million inhabitants) via BOT and TOT business models respectively. Moreover, BCH serves Panjin city (with over 1.24 million customers) with a large wastewater treatment plant and a world-class O&M team.

The company currently manages a total installed capacity exceeding 1 million m3/day in its China concessions alone.
