WWT Webinar to lift the lid on digital transformation

WWT is to lift the bonnet on three UK water companies which have transformed into smart utilities, in an interactive webinar in partnership with Suez Smart Utilities, on Thursday 16 July.

Lessons From Inside A Smart Utility will hear directly from those working at the sharp edge of projects which delivered digital transformation, who will share their stories.

This focused, one-hour session will open to audience members who can submit questions for live discussion by the panel.

Presentations will cover all aspects of the journey to becoming a digital water company.

David Walsh, network control manager at Northumbrian Water, will present the full end-to-end picture on what needs the company wanted to meet, procurement and implementation, and short- and long-term outcomes. Insights spanning an eight-year timespan will reveal how systems have grown with the company to deliver improved operations, security, supply and maintenance programmes.

Bristol Water completed its transformation within 18-months and less than a year ago. Mike Sumbler, water and energy manager, is primed to present the inside track on that project, with insights on change management and early indicators on ROI.

At Essex & Suffolk, digital systems have helped overcome a challenge with high levels of snail repellant metaldehyde in raw waters. Bernard Bray, production planning engineer at Essex & Suffolk, will present the use of smart technology to solve that.

Simon Bunn, senior manager, business development specialist at Suez Smart Solutions, said: “This topic is particularly timely as digital utilities look to optimise activity and respond to changing circumstances during lockdown. People will be intrigued to see, for instance, how accurately Idaho Water predicted lockdown changes in demand by using machine learning.”
