Yorkshire Water appoints Artesia Consulting and i20 Water for SIDS
A collaboration between Artesia Consulting and i20 Water has been appointed to work on Yorkshire Water's supply interruption detection services (SIDS).
As part of the partnership, i2O’s ‘event detection’ module in its iNet advanced analytics solution is used in conjunction with Artesia’s eVader software.
eVader builds a model of what ‘normal’ is, based on a year of historical data, and then checks new data as it is received against the model, identifying whether it is ‘normal’, ‘suspect’, or ‘unusual’.
i2O’s solution runs the eVader software, sends emails to clients to highlight events, and makes the data and insights available through graphs, tables, dashboards, and maps.
This allows the collaboration’s clients to become aware of network events sooner, to diagnose them more effectively and to make interventions to resolve them before they escalate.
Yorkshire Water innovation programme manager Sam Bright said: “We have recently run a trial of the eVader system across six supply zones and compared it with other anomaly detection technologies.
“We found it to be the most promising solution and are in the process of now extending this to the entire network. We are excited about the potential of the system to identify network issues as they happen, which will allow us to resolve them much more quickly.”
Artesia Consulting director Dene Marshallsay said: “We have been able to meet Yorkshire Water’s requirements more cost-effectively through our partnership with i2O, and the iNet solution offers the client the opportunity to scale up from an initial pilot based on a limited number of locations to network-wide.”
David Kenny, head of sales at i2O, added: “Yorkshire Water has used i2O Advanced Pressure Management for a number of years. We are delighted to be able to extend the range of services that we provide to them through the partnership with Artesia Consulting.”
