Workshops On New Technology, Intelligent Data & Sustainable Impact At The Global Leakage Summit 2018
One of the main attractions of the Global Leakage Summit is our pre-conference workshops on the day prior to the Summit. These technical workshops showcase the latest technology developments and water utility case studies from leading water network technology companies, for improving water network management and advanced network operations.
The two workshops for the 2018 Summit, on Monday 12 March, continue this theme by focusing on better knowledge of assets, improved asset data management and maintaining calm networks to reduce infrastructure damage.
Here is a preview:
WORKSHOP A: 10.00 – 13.00, Monday 12th March Sponsored by Echologics and Mueller Co
FROM INTELLIGENT DATA TO SUSTAINABLE IMPACT
Reflecting increasing pressure on water utilities to address the consequences of ageing infrastructure, this workshop will:
Address the ‘out of sight out of mind’ attitude to buried infrastructure, particularly the critical transmission mains
Provide insights on how utilities can avoid pipe ruptures, damage and service outage with fixed network monitoring systems
Show how pressure management can help reduce water loss to a sustainable economic level while extending asset life
Share with delegates practicable and sustainable approaches to the range of intelligent water solutions
WORKSHOP B – 14.00 – 17.00, Monday 12th March Sponsored by i2O
TECHNOLOGY: ISLANDS & INNOVATIONS
Innovation and the introduction of new technology can present a challenge for managing large amounts of disparate data.
This workshop provides examples of how ‘smart innovation’ has led to development of new applications for existing hardware and software to enhance data quality:
Identification of PRV anomalies to reduce the cost and risk of unnecessary PRV servicing
Detection of pressure transients so that remedial action can be taken – reducing burst frequency and increasing asset life
Drought management and reduced burst frequency by smarter pressure control
