Improve water projects with a Main Instrument Vendor (MIV)

Reduce the complexity of project management by relying on our broad instrumentation portfolio

The main challenge of project management is finalizing the project on time and within budget. This also applies to the water industry. And while measurement instrumentation may only be a small part of the overall project it is essential for the long-lasting success of the plant. To ensure water safety and efficiency the instruments have to be carefully selected. By relying on a Main Instrument Vendor (MIV) like Endress+Hauser, instrumentation selection is significantly easier.

Advantages of using a MIV

Using multiple measurement instruments suppliers makes any project naturally more complex: various bid packages, communication with different contacts and coordination of different processes. This may result in increased effort or may even risk your project deadlines and budget. With Endress+Hauser as a MIV all instrumentation from measurement transmitters to gauges, accessories and services will be provided in a comprehensive deliverable.


Early engagement to ensure smooth project execution

Early engagement, integrated teams and clear communication are the hallmarks of a MIV approach to projects. Ideally, they result in lower costs and risks. The main reason is that during the initial planning phase different technical solutions can be still discussed. This way, last-minute changes can be prevented and you can be assured that the best-fit technology is chosen right from the beginning.

Services during the whole lifecycle

At your side during the whole lifecycle

After the project is finalized you can still rely on Endress+Hauser to support you during the whole lifecycle. The comprehensive MIV approach reduces the interfaces and gaps that occur during operation when having multiple suppliers. For example you can save time thanks to documentation that is easily accessible anytime. And you reduce costs with simplified procurement, storage and MRO processes.
