Anglian Water Taps into AVEVA for Smart Water Solution
Date: 10th October 2018
Leak-detection solution compares historical metrics with real-time network intelligence to save water, exceed regulatory targets and improve employee productivity
AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, today announced Anglian Water, a utility operator serving six million customers in England, has implemented an AVEVA smart water solution that compares real-time information with historic data to facilitate rapid detection of water leaks. As a web-based solution that leverages the Industrial Internet of Things, data can be extracted from any water network distribution or maintenance-related data source.
The Anglian Water region in the East of the United Kingdom faces the risk of serious drought conditions in the future together with significant population growth. This has prompted the industry regulator of the water sector in England and Wales, Ofwat, to impose lower leakage targets of at least 15 percent by 2025, which could save the industry up to 170 billion litres of water a year.
“Anglian Water’s implementation of an AVEVA Integrated Leakage and Pressure Management (ILPM) solution was an integral component to our response to the ‘Beast from the East’ [storm] and ensured that we continued to outperform on our leakage targets. By centralising data collection in one place, Anglian Water now has better visibility of network performance, resulting in greater efficiency with less time spent processing data,” said David Jacobs, Leakage Manager at Anglian Water. “The system allows us to monitor the network on a daily basis and spot new leaks as they happen. This has enabled us to better plan repair activities to ensure leaks are fixed with greater speed and efficiency.”
“The digital transformation impacting industrial organisations extends to water utility operators and how they manage increasingly precious water resources,” said Rashesh Mody, Senior Vice President, AVEVA. “This transformation has boosted efficiency and productivity, enabling more time for employees to spend on other value-added activities.”
