Tim McMahon

Head of Water Asset Management

Thames Water

Tim has worked at Thames Water for 14 years covering a variety of roles - mainly in the Water Infrastructure area.  Over the last 2.5 years he has led the Operations Water Infrastructure department through a number of changes in order to respond to TW's leakage challenge.  He is now applying his experience to the Water business in order to reduce leakage by 20% over the next 5 years.

TW's new technologies:

The TW Trunk main rig - An hydraulic asset to test new technologies on large pipes (over 18") in size to see if we can pin point asset faults and leaks more effectively

  • 2018-19 saw the largest roll out of in-situ acoustic loggers in the industry

  • A new faster delivery framework for testing ideas across 8 leading Water companies

  • The beauty of data, in particular what we are seeing with our SMART meter data around usage and leakage in flats in London

  • Tim McMahon

    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?
