Head, SPM Planning and Analysis
Maynilad Water Services Inc
With 6 years' experience in water pressure management & network planning, he introduced the advanced pressure management which is now in the process of being automated. He is one of the experts in reducing leakage via the correct setting of pressure reducing valves and pump station pressure settings, resulting in huge savings to Maynilad Water in terms of OPEX cost.
In 2013 he led the CAPEX project prioritization of Maynilad in terms of complying with the service level requirement of 1.2million customers and took an active role in conducting a technical conference in Maynilad. He became the pioneer in implementing a solar power solution to augment the high consumption of power in Maynilad's pumping stations.
In 2010 he attended training in Israel for pressure management. He was also invited to be a speaker at the 2012 Water Loss Conference in Manila and in 2014 at Water Loss Asia in KL. I
From 2015 to 2016 he handled the hydraulic simulation of the Maynilad network, used for the correct sizing of pipes and pumping stations for the distribution system. He currently handles the implementation of Maynilad water supply CAPEX and leads in the implementation of the masterplan for both network distribution & treatment plants.
With a total of 10 years' experience in Maynilad the largest water solutions company in the Philippines in terms of number of customers, he handles both network management and treatment plant management, applying the latest technology available for more efficient operation.
2019 LEARNING BENEFITS:
The World-Leading Forum for Leakage Management...
...Now In Its 10th 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 2019
- The UK water industry under pressure - leakage is right at the top of the UK's political agenda again and the UK Water Industry has taken a pounding over the last two years. How will the industry focus on meeting its stringent targets?
- What can we learn from global practitioners in areas of water scarcity and population migration who have addressed the issue of managing customer demand?
- How do water operators in megacities and with mega populations in countries like Brazil and Philippines meet demand and still run sustainable networks?
- Can integrated network wide sensors and data communication help the industry in its drive towards 'smart water' and zero leakage by 2050?
- Ensuring the data is used for smart insights and actions - otherwise smart water isn't smart!
- The technology companies are going to play a major part - what will it take in terms of advances in sensor and communication technology, pipe material and pipe repair technology to get even anywhere near zero leakage?
- How will Brexit affect the UK and European water industry - will research and innovation and investment in assets and infrastructure suffer? What does this mean for the supply chain and UK exporters of water technologies and solutions?
- Can the increased use of smart technology help operators understand how to monitor pressure transients and 'calm' the network to reduce bursts?
- What have we learnt about understanding the balance between customer use, supply pipe leakage and internal plumbing losses?
- Much-needed improvements to hydraulic model calibration and a new generation of modelling tools are required to ensure that models meet the criteria for identifying anomalies and 'hotspots' in the network
