Project execution
Our team of dedicated project managers will ensure a smooth process around the construction, delivery and start-up of your order. Cambi has a very successful track record in delivering projects on time and within budget. The project execution team also has experience with turn-key contracts, and our scope is seldom limited to only the Cambi manufactured equipment.

Financed solutions
In Cambi, we are open to discuss alternatives to a traditional capital sale project, such as financed or operated solutions (e.g. DBO projects, PPP or 'treatment fee' structures). We also have experience with setting up operating joint ventures and SPVs in different markets. One example is the Chertsey JV with Thames Water in 1998. More references are available upon request.

We encourage both customers and partners on potential projects to contact Cambi to explore concrete opportunities.
