POWER Project presented at the ICT4Water Action Plan
The usage of water is a key enabler for urban and rural industrial activities. Moreover, water quality improvement and water scarcity are important short-medium challenges to face in the EU. Effective, smarter and cost-efficient ICT solutions for water management should adjust services to the society and give new opportunities for businesses. The Action Plan 2017 related to ICT and Water management will identify actions which include activities, challenges, timelines and tools for implementation to suggest the creation of a Digital Single Market for water services.
A fully integrated smart water network does not exist in Europe or globally. The water sector faces difficulties to develop smart technology due to the fragmentation of the sector, slow adoption of new technologies, absence of SME development and no holistic vision being set out for the sector among others. This is caused by the lack of integration and standardisation of these sectors that can enable companies to operate in the water industry. Given the need for interoperability and standardisation and the need for a holistic view of the water supply chain, the water economics and the connection between water and smart cities, two roadmaps have been published in the framework of the activities of the ICT4Water cluster (roadmaps published in 2015 and 2016).
Baseform at 2017 North American Water Loss Conference
The California-Nevada Section, AWWA hosts the 2017 North American Water Loss Conference in cooperation with the Alliance for Water Efficiency and the NAWL 2017 Conference Planning Committee. Discussions will take place over two days on developing water loss policies, auditing your system, reducing apparent losses, controlling leakage, managing pressures, and documenting your progress, both for you and for your regulators.
Join Baseform in the exhibition area, to discuss with our experts your specific needs and try out our award-winning software for water & energy losses.
Faster response times: best-in-class event detection and notification of likely pipe breaks, leaks, water quality, sensor malfunction, network events; cross-validation with work orders.
Up to 90% of recovered volumes retrieved in near real-time: immediate ROI
Fewer false alarms: behavior-based detection significantly outperforms threshold-based SCADA alarms.
Up to 75% fewer false alarms
Automated water balance: input volumes, authorized consumption, metering errors, real losses (min. night flows + lost in events).
On-demand, any time
Water meter management: key volume metrics, metering errors, useful lives, replacement policies.
Reliable apparent losses quantification
Accurately estimated demand patterns: statistically calculated per zone, date, type of day, improving accuracy e.g., to simulation models.
Up to 80% better precision
