Water Distribution Start Up
i want to establish a start-up water company in russia. The company will provide water supply and wastewater disposal services to customers. We will operate municipal infrastructures based on concession agreements.
Targeted cities with coming water tenders are ekaterinburg, volgograd, saratov, izhevsk, yaroslavl and other cities with population over 500 thousand inhabitants.
I seek $1 million in seed investment to start water engineering business. The funds will go towards acquiring computers, equipment and working capital. This ensures that we start generating cash flow.
Total finance required for starting up new water company in russia is $20 million. Can you assist with capital raising for my project?
Best regards, alexei
fyi: project' description is below.
Project: creation of russian water company (ruswater)
i. Goal: creation of large water company in russia since during next three years russian water market will be fast-growing and under consolidation.
Ii. Strategy of ruswater
creation of large water company in russia
annual sales 15 bln. Rubles, ebitda 1 bln. Rubles ($ 1 = 36 rubles)
activities in 6-8 russian regions with population/customers 4-5 mln. Inhabitants
targeted enterprise value 7 bln. Rubles ($ 200 mln.)
iii. Stages / tasks for creation and development of ruswater
• participation in upcoming tenders (ekaterinburg, volgograd, saratov, izhevsk, yaroslavl, etc.) and winning relevant contracts for long-term concession (main task on development stage) with 0,7 bln. Rubles of initial investments needed.
• m&a deals (possible option)
• increase of operational efficiency (main task on operation stage)
• creation of profit-centers, including engineering company. Engineering business could be developed independently from water company’ business. Based on practice of creating utilities’ engineering companies, 15-20% profitability (ebitda margin) is achievable.
• formation of team and its strengthening
• partnerships with authorities, financial institutions (not only financing but joint project development as well) and strategic investors (international, if needed)
iv. Financing of ruswater
minimum amount of investments needed is 2 bln. Rubles, including:
equity of 600-800 mln. Rubles for development of first regional projects. Pay-back period is 4-5 years.
loans from banks up to 2 bln. Rubles for second-stage regional projects and financing of investment programs.+4 Other Responses
Water Supply Distribution Network
Experts seeking - expert in design and operation of water supply distribution network.
Description - we are operating a distribution network of 30 to 50 yrs old with intermittent supply of an average 3 - 4 hours supply. In some of the areas there are steep slopes where i have seen engineers telling all the water will go down and the down stream people (people living at lower elevation) get sufficient water where as upstream people (people residing at higher elevation) will not get much water i.E, they will get the water only when they throttle the valve of the pipe supplying water to down stream side.
How to address this issue while designing a water distribution network when there is an elevation difference between of 20 to 30 m?
People residing at the lower elevation receive water with more discharge through their house service connection. But people residing at higher elevation receive very low discharge. How to tackle with this to provide uniform supply of water.?
