Water, Power and utilities

Globally water utilities face challenges in reducing non-revenue water, apart from decreasing revenue, investment, productivity, and delivering service, non-revenue water also increases the cost of the delivered water.

In addition to reducing non-revenue water, primary objectives of water utilities would be to

  • To Provide water supply 24/7 to meet the expectations of households and industries.
  • Expand water distribution networks to effectively deal with population growth
  • Prompt replacement and maintenance of Assets
  • Treat heavily polluted water, water recycling and water storage.

Effective Asset Management, Remote Infrastructure Monitoring, Smart Metering, Infrastructure are some of the measures that utilities may take to meet the objectives and address the challenges. Let us briefly look at how these will be helpful for utilities.

Asset Management

Effectively managing water network assets will be beneficial for an utility to improve and sustain the expected level of service, reduce water losses, cut unit costs, and justify tariff rates if it knows what assets it has and needs, when and how to maintain or replace those assets, and how the assets should be operated.

Poor asset management leads to

  • Water losses that exceed industry good practice
  • Less than 24/7 water supply service and frequent concerns over water quality
  • Incomplete, inaccurate, and unreliable asset records
  • Maintenance that mostly addresses breakdowns of assets
  • Minimal asset planning that is not based on sound analysis and records
  • Costs, and ultimately prices, that are higher than they should be

So paramount importance to effectively manage water utility assets.

Remote Infrastructure Management

Remote Infrastructure improves distribution system efficiency and maintenance. Remote data monitoring systems are cost-effective and scalable, enhance existing SCADA systems, and save valuable time by allowing field personnel to concentrate on operation and maintenance activities instead of collecting data from remote monitoring sites.

Water utilities do an excellent job of producing high-quality water at their plants, but they need to maintain quality throughout their distribution systems. Monitoring water distribution and wastewater collection system infrastructure traditionally has been difficult and expensive. Fortunately, technology is making it possible to economically and conveniently monitor remote water distribution and wastewater collection system assets. If you can monitor your system, you can better manage it. Remote data monitoring systems usually don’t provide any remote control to assets in the field; rather, they collect and transmit data from those assets to a central server where the data can be displayed, plotted, analyzed, exported, and shared. Such systems allow users to monitor a variety of system devices and parameters, including water and flowmeters, pressure-relief valves, hydrant pressure and water hammer, water quality indicators, reservoir levels, rainfall, mag meters, pump stations, and storage tank and aquifer levels.

Key benefits of a remote data monitoring system include the following:

  • Access to remote real-time and historical data.
  • A common data platform for all parameters. All data reside in one common database, allowing users to easily analyze and compare different data.
  • Alarm notification and management. Alarms can be sent as text messages to mobile devices or as email messages sent via the Web.
  • Choice of communication technologies, including cellular, radio, satellite, landline telephone, or direct-connect Ethernet options.
  • Choice of RTU power options, including battery, solar, alternating current, etc.
  • System scalability.
  • Automated operation. Data are collected, stored, and transmitted automatically, eliminating the need for field personnel to travel to remote sites to manually download and collect data.
  • Open database for third-party sharing. Common database platforms allow users to easily share data from one data management system to another.
  • Low procurement, installation, and lifetime operating cost of ownership.

Smart Metering

Smart Metering Solution will eliminate paper/pencil inspections, and manual data entry. The water utilities will use this data collected by AMR/AMI to manage many critical challenges and decrease operating costs, identify performance issues, improve customer service and better prioritize infrastructure investments. AMI helps utilities streamline their billing process in many ways. These include reducing the labour necessary to read traditional water meters, as well as streamlined bill generation. Furthermore, the data gathered by AMI can reveal problematic areas within the system and better manage the production, storage and distribution of water. It can also help utilities substantially decrease non-revenue water by detecting water loss both in the distribution network and at customer end-points – a huge cost for utilities.
