Food industry giant free to invest in new activity (Cargrill).

Cargill opts for full water management outsourcing to water-link

The challenge

Cost-effective and reliable outsourcing.

Food industry multinational Cargill (Ghent, Belgium) was a long-standing customer for drinking water, from which they produced steam as part of their production process. Cargill faced a series of important investments in technology and infrastructure to start producing biodiesel and wished to free up money and resources for this ambitious project. They challenged Water-link for a cost-effective and reliable outsourcing of their demiwater management activities.

The solution

Full outsourcing based on full reliability With comprehensive documentation and solid business reasoning, Water-link convinced this customer that their outsourcing proposal was the most reliable, efficient and, last but not least, most cost-effective solution. Once Cargill was satisfied that demiwater was guaranteed both in terms of quality and supply security, they entrusted Water-link with the full project management of the outsourcing project.

The Cargill outsourcing project was completed in 10 months, on schedule.
