Asset Maintenance: Repair? Replace? Or do Nothing!
This is the decision facing our industry as the ageing and limited infrastructure is failing. Critical planned maintenance programmes are side-lined in the continual drive for economies, cost savings and spend reductions. With increases in widespread flooding and heavy rainfall is it time for the UK to implement a plan of preventive maintenance to stop this happening to our own asset base, or do we let it collapse around us?
