WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Τestimonials for the program
The water supply system used to manage us, now, we are finally managing the water supply system, and I believe that those who will get involved in the Asset management project, will see how little they know about their own water supply systems.
Asset Management program, which we consider a foundation for good utility operations, has been running very well in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia. We are very pleased how the AM hubs (two national associations – UTVSI and Aquasan) have managed the program in those four countries, have attracted large number of utilities and help them improve their services. We have very high expectations for Albania and Kosovo, too, and we work very closely with both national associations (SHUKALB and SHUKOS) which will be the new hubs for Albania and Kosovo, together with Prishtina waterworks.
Asset Management is very important pillar of the reform that Albania is implementing in the water sector and sanitation. We are very trustful that with this project utilities will have a very important tool that will allow them to know what they have in the “house” i.e. in the utility and will have knowledge not only about the assets they administer, but also they will have a plan how to manage those assets and make more efficient business plan and investment plan.
