CTD Division Manager
David created the SUEZ Technical Distribution Centre (CTD, Paris), after many years of experience in the management and operation of water networks.
David has worked for SUEZ at various international locations since 1990. Before taking up his current position and for nearly three decades, he experienced three continents and eight different countries. He started in Italy as an operational engineer to set up three new water companies, moved then to Indonesia to take the responsibility of network manager of the largest operational center of Jakarta and completed his operational experience in Algeria, where he was distribution manager with operational responsibility for 12 distribution centers in Algiers, taking up the challenge of restoring a 24/7 water service for more than 5 million people. For 6 years he was Deputy Technical Director of Suez and Chairman of the International Technical Committee for Distribution Networks.
Since 2009, David has been Manager of SUEZ's Technical Distribution Centre, the excellency centre of SUEZ for Water Distribution Systems. Created in 2009, the «CTD» develops new approaches and technologies for advanced network management. It supports SUEZ to be the world leader on network performance optimisation and underground asset management. It offers today 15 international experts providing more than 100 missions for 1.500 days of technical assistance every year. His responsibilities also include training and monitoring teams and experts on network distribution issues, and participating in the management of SUEZ's Research and Innovation projects.
Areas of Expertise
* Network performance: advanced solutions for water network
* Asset management: renewal/maintenance programs and materials qualification
* Smart network: new technologies for network management
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
