Feasibility study on pure water business in Nigeria

Feasibility study pure water business :  This article describes the investment cost and benefits for setting up a pure water production plant in Nigeria.

The proposed plant can be established anywhere in the nation.

As its end product is consumed widely and generally in Nigeria.

There is no specific time required for the entry time in this sector.

As the need is increasing step by step due to the increase in populace and industrialization.

Investment can be made at whatever time during the year.

However abject time happens especially during the raining season.

The Industry

Despite bottomless water resources everywhere in the nation.

Nigeria is faced with problems of acute water shortage with its attendant consequences on human and economic life of the nation.

Truth be told, in its report, Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).

And a hearty Government plan on MDG targeted to supply 75 per cent of the populace with safe drinking water, much success has not been recorded up until now.

Studies have demonstrated that with the current pressure of quick populace growth coupled with poor management, the available resources of water are being depleted at a quick rate, a circumstance which gave rise to investors bridging the crevice in both bottled and pure water production in Nigeria. Pure water belongs to the lower consumption in the beverage and water sector. however it represents around 70% of aggregate packaged water sold in Nigeria. Presently there are no national brand leadership in the sector unlike the bottle water sector which produces clear leaders in EVA water and Purelife water. Leadership in the sector is restricted to the territory where it is produced.

Basic Success figures.

Effective systems to keep the product fresh and free of contamination and bacteria.

Effective and cost to keeping raw materials within economic limits to remain competitive.

Energy consumption can be high. keeping it within acceptable limits is basic.

Effective maintenance schedule is basic to success, to keep away from production stoppages.

Close co-ordination with the sales department to ensure that the plant produces what the market would purchase.

Great product name and branding is basic to market success.

Intelligent systems for procurement, production planning, inventory control, quality assurance and dissemination system.

Production Plan

The proposed plant will run 2 lines of pure production starting on 70% installed limit per day of 8 hours and 285 days in a year. The production will equate to around 1,200 packs day by day or 342,000 sacks (20 pure per pack) every year. Production will increase yearly until reaching full plant limit.

Raw materials Requirement

Raw materials usage for this plant are commonly Nylons for pure and for bagging. These are sufficiently available and supplied in the Country.

Technical Overview

The plant will use standard filtration treatment to teat its water. Adequate examination would have to be made of the raw water to determine the level of treatment and chemicals needed for its treatment.

Expansion of line to include bottling plant is possible where adequate space has been laid and a more treatment machinery are added especially the reverse Osmosis. A standard Living home house with adequate space for production floor is required. Other considerations would include, raw material store, finished goods store, shroud room, research center room and office space.

In the production of pure water {pure water}, the two most important equipment required for production is the water treatment plant and the pure water filling machine.

A rundown of Some machines required for the production of pure water as well as their uses is provided below.

Section One: Pure Water Treatment System

This system is comprised of; activated carbon filter tank, sand filter tank, softer/particle exchange tank and additionally the reverse osmosis system. For control, it uses PLC system to screen the operation of the entire system.
