“The project outputs are exactly what I wanted. You’ve succeeded in identifying opportunities in Cambridge where other companies have failed, and I’m looking forward to implementing the schemes.”
However, with 2018 and 2020 seeing some of largest peak demands on recent record, many of the schemes installed in the UK are increasingly being challenged by frequent summer demand events. During these events the operation of our pressure reducing valves can come under increasing scrutiny as head losses increase and overall network pressures drop.
So, as an industry, how can we ensure we deliver a suitable pressure to our customers whilst achieving ever increasing leakage targets?
Whole network analysis
By combining GIS data with existing flow and pressure monitoring we can build up an understanding of the available pressures at each property on the network and identify those areas with the greatest opportunity to reduce excess pressures and calm the network, all while maintaining a generous level of service
Robust benefits calculation
Having worked closely with UK clients to develop a robust cost benefit analysis model, we can give reliable predictions of the reduction in burst flow, overall burst count and active leakage control effort, which can be achieved through installing new, or modifying existing pressure reducing valves.
We work closely with our clients’ local experts to combine their experience and understanding with our analytics platform. This enables us to identify opportunities for the optimisation of existing schemes, and the implementation of new schemes, including larger strategic opportunities.
We love working with companies to identify and overcome their current data challenges and make their job simpler. Discover what our current and past clients have to say about working with SME Water.
