Morning Workshop: 7 December, 2020 (09.00 - 13.00)
Hosted by XYLEM
Applying Digital Solutions
09.00 - 10.10 AM
Session 1: Risk Management Of Critical Assets: Case Studies From Water Utilities Around The World
This session looks at how utilities can be more strategic when looking at pipe renewal and rehabilitation projects. What information can be gained by taking a look underground?
Pedro Pina, Assessment Services Sales Director, Xylem Europe
10.10 - 10.25 Break
10.25 - 11.35 AM
Session 2: Metrology: Providing Data That Is Fit For Purpose
Measuring customer usage is key to understanding what is happening within the network, and can provide key insights to water losses. How that data is measured, and what frequency it is transmitted and how reliable the transmission is will all play a key role in the benefits that this data can bring.
Loic Flageul, Sales Director, Sensus UK&I
11.35 - 11.50 Break
11.50 - 13.00 PM
Session 3: Smart Water Networks: What Data, Where And When?
This session looks at the 5 Vs of big data and how that applies to Smart Water Networks.
Ruth Clarke, Business Development Manager, Xylem
Sam Bright, Innovation Programme Manager, Yorkshire Water
13.00 PM END OF WORKSHOP
2020 LEARNING BENEFITS:
The World-Leading Forum for Leakage Management...
...Now In Its 11th Edition And Established As A Brand Leader - For Water Company Practitioners To Exchange Information on Topical Case Studies And Learn About Best Practice Technologies For Assessing, Monitoring And Reducing Leakage In Their Networks
KEY ISSUES FOR 2020
- Public Interest Commitment (PIC) goals - a keynote presentation from 3 UK water company CEOs to explain the steps to deliver on their commitment to reduce leakage
- Innovation, collaboration and cooperation. Innovation is not just technology, but innovative concepts and practices - how will the 'heat-map' of company research help the industry to achieve zero leakage?
- Integrating network data to localise leaks in fixed and mobile networks. 2018-19 saw the largest roll out of in-situ acoustic loggers in the UK water industry - how have these have helped to meet leakage targets?
- Managing global challenges - water scarcity, drought and natural disasters, and now Covid-19. How is the global water industry coping?
- Managing leakage using machine learning, big data analysis and hydraulic simulation - using ever smarter algorithm technologies to analyse the mass of data coming in from all over the network, and to detect abnormal patterns outside the normal operating range
- The rise in automation and AI will cause 75 million jobs to be lost by 2022, but 133 million new jobs will be created (WEF 2018). What effect will this have on the water industry workforce? Will the new technologies be in the hands of Gen Z?
- Smart network infrastructure management - using big data analytics to link pipe replacement to failure rate. How to maintain a desired level of service at a lowest asset life cycle cost?
- How can smart networks improve performance in other areas to meet Outcome Delivery Incentives (ODIs) as well as reducing leakage and Per Capita Consumption (PCC)?
- Bringing pipe repair into the digital age. What are the options for minimal disruption or non-intrusive pipe repairs?
