Overall, a richer data set and the information provided to Anglian has helped the company to make smarter investment decisions on assets, with the potential to reduce need to deliver huge capital solutions, (like mains replacements, etc).
Rebecca Harrison, Optimisation Strategy Manager at Anglian Water:
“This new level of monitoring has allowed Anglian Water to deploy strategies aimed at extending the life of the rising main (such as soft starts on pumps and improved air valve maintenance) of which early results have suggested it will allow for deferral of capital investment by extending asset life. This enhanced understanding of performance also provides an essential targeting tool for the optimisation team.”
Mark Hendy – VP sales EMEA at Syrinix:
“This collaboration project has delivered real insight into how rising mains operate and defined the typical failures that occur. The data collected led to newly developed analysis methods which deliver both maintenance alerts and early warning of asset failures. The automated insights made viable savings for utility companies whilst also benefiting the environment.”
