Web based utility management
HydroShare: Monitoring of water, gas and electricity consumption via the Internet Multitude of applications• Irrigators• Industry• Recreational• Public institutions• Shopping Centres•Trade Waste•Level Monitoring
Internet Based Data loggers• Connects to almost all existing water, gas and electricity meters• 3G / GPRS / Satellite options available• Benefit of large data storage if communications fail• Detailed alarming systems- SMS/EMAIL/SCADA options• Low power consumptions and data costs -• Temporary or permanent installation
Benefits of Web Based Data• Quick, easy access to site data• Permanent storage of your results- accessible any time• Years of data can be stored and immediately viewable online• Automatically generate reports from the web to statistically analyse your data• One central system to store and retrieve data• Flexibility and visibility both for water authority and customer
Exception Reporting- Configured by clients- Detects leaks, abnormal usage, out of hours exceptions- Forms the basis for regulated reporting- Water quality reports also available (EC, pH etc.)
Site Brief• Monitor levels within the well.• Monitor Flow totals.• Activate pumps at pre-determined levels (Control level)• Stop pumps if no flow detected while pumping.(Flow feedback)• SMS alarming for pump failure.• SMS alarming for high level.
Source Monitoring of Discharge Quality and Quantities (Trade Waste) Water Authority and customer both get access to real-time live discharge data
Hydroshare• Designed to measure TDS loads• Better understanding of variability in groundwater quality• Required for customers if: – RO plant – Groundwater discharge – TDS variation
Hydroshare• Better monitoring of customer• Ability to shut down pumps if discharging while non-compliant• Mt Martha STP operators to see discharge profile• Alerts sent via SMS and email for non-compliant discharge• Protect trade waste plant and staff
Customer Benefits• Visibility of discharge – leaks etc• Remote monitoring of compliance• Alarming real time SMS alerts for non compliance• Assist in cleaner production studies• Identify waste discharge profile• Identify excess chemical product discharge to sewer• Better alignment of incoming and outgoing Tradewaste balance.• Give where possible incoming verses outgoing water balance.
Continued• Feed back to customer volume control usage• Reduce Trade waste officers travel times and manage treatment plant management, especially smaller treatment plants• Drill down shut down for non compliance• TDS better monitoring and management of a critical pollutant• Meter reading redundancy• Monthly billing in line with incoming water bill• Protection of assets treatment plants and sewer works
What we’ve started doing……•Monitoring new apartment complexes: Water meters, electricity meters,rainwater tank levels, pump power consumption, localized weather stations•New pressure sewer telemetry system: Pumps will talk to each other to relaydata, more information sending back to assist operations and also modelling.Includes live level info for each pump•Moving the SOBN bore monitoring towards real-time bore reading equipment•Smart building monitoring (profiling time of use for water, gas, electricity)•Carbon Footprint Reporting and monitoring
Footprint Monitoring Building on Hydroshare foundation to offer Trade Waste Monitoring, Carbon emission data, Weather and Tank Level Data directly to customers via the web
Real-time power/energy consumption for major assets
Automated Online Reports-For Greenhouse emissions reporting etc (NABERS, EREP…).-Linked to actual production figures (eg number of cars produced,tonnes of food produced etc.)-Can be fully customised
