Bus procurement and leasing
IPEX provides commercial and technical due diligence for financiers investing in bus assets. We understand the bus procurement and leasing structure, including the regulatory requirements, financing options (including OEM in-house financing), operating concession models, trends in the current leasing market and secondary leasing market opportunities in the UK and overseas.
A shift in traction technology, largely driven by public policy, is rapidly pushing the green agenda forward. All major bus manufactures now offer battery electric technology. IPEX understands the options available and the whole life cost of ownership and costs of modification or conversion of existing assets.
Asset management and life cycle costs
As specialists in maintenance and asset management, we understand the whole life cost of ownership for bus assets, including maintenance, energy, leasing, and operating costs. We provide strategies for optimisation through use of the latest maintenance practices, such as reliability-centred maintenance and condition-based technologies. With the rise in battery and hydrogen use for traction on bus assets, we also consult on asset management and costs, including battery replacement intervals.
