Jacopa on stage at national conference

The Pump Centre Conference and Exhibition, held annually at Telford International Centre, is recognised as the leading event of its kind in the UK. For 2017, the conference theme is, ‘TOTEX: Pumping System Efficiency, Reliability & Optimisation’ and Jacopa will be taking to the stage on 11 May with a main conference presentation entitled ‘Upstream Investment = Downstream Saving’ at 14:30 hrs in the Pattingham Suite.

The Water Industry’s focus on TOTEX that came into effect with AMP 6 has resulted in a major strategic change for the sector, one that has put an onus of responsibility on suppliers to demonstrate that their products and services support delivery of outcomes for water companies. System TOTEX can be reduced by improvements in efficiency, reliability and by optimisation of the whole treatment process. At the Pump Centre Conference, Jacopa will present a supplier’s perspective, including the strategic case that focussing on inlet works investment benefits downstream treatment assets, including pumps.

Managing Director, Alex Lloyd said: “The previous focus on Capex put an emphasis on investment to meet individual outputs. With the move from ‘outputs’ to ‘outcomes’, capital expenditure and operational cost are key considerations, along with other direct and also indirect impacts on cost. The healthy outcome of this is that the lifecycle cost impact of procurement decisions are under scrutiny putting greater emphasis on innovation-driven cost-efficiencies. Our extensive range of inlet works solutions enables us to focus on Totex through a ‘one stop shop’ for our customers, including coarse screens, fine screens, screenings handling, packaged inlet works, packaged grit removal and treatment systems.”

Jacopa’s one-stop-shop approach also extends to storm treatment equipment and support to outcome delivery. Alex Lloyd continued: “We provide solutions for customers by assessing hydraulic conditions within storm systems and any impact on the design characteristics of associated pump installations to reduce the risk of overspill when flow control equipment is fitted to attenuate downstream flows. We recently teamed with Biogest AG, adding their highly regarded and competitive stainless steel stormwater products to our portfolio of screens and flushing systems. The move is part of a drive to further develop our storm products division to offer a comprehensive service and product range.”
