AI tool for wastewater sewer networks launches
An artificial intelligence (AI) analytics tool for wastewater sewer networks and water recycling centres has been launched by Detectronic.
DetecAnalytics has been developed by the monitoring specialist in partnership with the international engineering, technology and software company, Royal HaskoningDHV.
“By partnering with Royal HaskoningDHV and utilising their revolutionary Aquasuite software, we take our data analysis and reporting to a whole new level with DetecAnalytics,” said Detectronic sales director, Neil Butler.
“Aquasuite is an AI-powered analyst and autopilot for utilities and industries. Delivering full visibility across drinking water and wastewater networks and treatment, it empowers water and sewage companies (WaSC) to make fact-based decisions quickly to improve processes and performance.
“This includes lowering operating costs, reducing capital investment and enabling proactive maintenance, warning of leaks, bursts, overflows and pollution incidents,” added Butler.
“DetecAnalytics works by connecting our Detectronic data loggers and adding the data they record to Aquasuite FLOW which is powered by AI.
“The data is analysed, and over an initial seven-week period, we can produce predictions with a high level of accuracy and confidence. This level of accuracy and confidence continues to increase over time. This enables the WaSC to predict what will happen within a catchment or a water recycling centre at any point in time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“By being able to predict sewage overflows, pipe friction loss, pump efficiency and energy consumption, the WaSC can further enhance self-reporting in PR19, benefit from better asset management with predictive maintenance and, ultimately, be in a position to improve overall operational and financial performance,” added Butler.
