Smart Water Networks

  1. 1. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Smart Water Networks Integrated Solutions for an optimal utility management Jokin Larrauri Water Vice President – Telvent Visit us at stand #20Esri European User ConferenceOctober 26–28, 2011 | Madrid, Spain
  2. 2. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Agenda 1. Introduction 5 min 2. Smart Water Networks 10 min 3. Some examples 10 min 4. Conclusions 5 min
  3. 3. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Framework Main Drivers Ensure water Ensure water Ensure water Ensure business supply quality efficiency efficiency Regulation compliance Accurate planning Reduce leakages Replace/upgrade infrastructures Reduce GHG emissions Increase distribution efficiencyEnergy optimization Develop new source water supply Retain workforce knowledge Ensure infrastructure security Reduce operational costs Etc…. Improved decision making Increase customer satisfaction
  4. 4. Smart Information for a Sustainable WorldDo we need to increase efficiency? The total energy consumption of US water utilities is estimated to be 56 billion kWh equating to $4 billion annually in OPEX (EPA) Between 5-10 billion Kw/h of power generated in the US is spent in water that is either leaked or not paid for by customers (AwwA) In developing countries, about 45 million cubic meters are lost daily through water leakage in the distribution networks — enough to serve nearly 200 million people (WB). Energy prices increase at a faster rate than water tariffs meaning reduced margins for water utilities.
  5. 5. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Framework: Improving efficiency ↑ CAPEX for improving efficiency: i.e. pipe replacement, installation of VSP,… Fine, but: • High amounts • Approval periods • Budgetary • Implementation constraints periods Current IT capacity is not used at a 100% • Projects are not • Not getting the best aligned out of the • Data silos investments

  7. 7. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Smart Water Networks Smart Water Networks solutions improve the efficiency, longevity, and reliability of the underlying physical water network by better measuring, collecting, analyzing, and acting upon a wide range of network events. Source: SWAN – Smart Water Networks Forum Use of information technology to optimize the utility’s capacity at a minimum CAPEX cost Data Information Decisions Actions Smart Water Networks Solutions More Better Accurate Smarter
  8. 8. Smart Information for a Sustainable World SWN: Fundamentals Smart Water Network’s fundamentals - The 3 I’s: Information: Realizing your full potential - SWN makes use of information that you might not know you have Integration: Make the best of your investments - SWN are able to make the best of the current IT installed base: your current investments Innovation: The constant future – SWN are flexible enough to take over the utility’s challenges as they come. Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Information Integration Innovation

  10. 10. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Benefits (or what you might be missing) Operational More accurate information for carrying out O&M activities New functionalities not available otherwise Optimization of the existing infrastructure and resources Business Improved decision making Streamlining OPEX and reduction / better planning of CAPEX needs Better ROI (existing investments)

  12. 12. Smart Information for a Sustainable WorldExample 1 – Belo Horizonte - Brazil- Utility Name: Copasa- 12.1 million people served (5.6 Belo Horizonte) - Improved response on- Over 40000 km of distribution pipes outage events - (↓14% outage times) 14% SCADA Maintenance - Improved maintenance policies Operational data - (↓33% repair times) 33% - Improved network control Data Maintenance Real time data Simulated data Predicted data - Improved planning GIS Hydraulic Model - Improved public image Geodata - Increased ROI on all these investments
  13. 13. Smart Information for a Sustainable WorldExample 2 – Qatar’s Water & Electricity Corporation - Utility Name : Kahramaa - NRW is the result of a - 1,4 million people served water balance that takes - Over 2500 km of water supply pipes into consideration data - Produces 360 Mm3/year coming from CRM/Billing, Metering, GIS, SCADA, Leak Billed Water Exported Detection systems Billed Authorized Billed Metered Revenue Consumption Consumption Water Authorized Billed Unmetered Consumption - Telvent has helped KM to Consumption Unbilled Metered Consumption reduce KM’s NRW to more Unbilled Authorized Consumption Unbilled Unmetered than half in 4 years, Consumption resulting in water savings Unauthorized Consumption System Input Volume Apparent Losses Customer Meter up to 57 M€ (14M€/year) Inaccuracies Non Leakage on Transmission Revenue and Distribution Lines Water - KM as most efficient water Water Losses Leakage and Overflows at utility in GCC area Storage Tanks Real Losses Leakage on Service - Only 3pp behing USA Connections up to point of Customer Meter average
  14. 14. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Example 3 – Service level compliance25 Pa. Code § 109.708. Planned service interruptions: The public water supplier shall give reasonablenotice to the affected customers prior to a planned service interruption affecting quantity or quality ofthe water delivered to the customer. If the interruption is scheduled to exceed 8 hours and affect 15 ormore service connections the water supplier shall also notify the Department.52 Pa. Code 67.1 (b) All electric, gas, water, and telephone utilities shall notify the Commission when2,500 or 5.0%, whichever is less, of their total customers have an unscheduled service interruption ina single incident for six or more projected consecutive hours. CIS GIS Hydraulic Model 1.- Customer notification 2.- Identification of unnplanned & collateral effects in advance
  15. 15. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Example 3 – Service level compliance Tracing Tool Valve Isolation Affected area CIS Information for notification
  16. 16. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Example 3- Service level compliance Valve isolation Simulation runs Hydraulic Results 2 Valves There are implications in the short-medium term No customers directly affected Results after 9 Results after 1h hours

  20. 20. Smart Information for a Sustainable World Conclusions SWN solutions complements CAPEX GIS as centric system to integrate and display utility key information coming from different IT platforms Planned implementation is key: Remember the 3 I’s Your utility already has some of the tools – Use them! You will get benefits and features not available otherwise Systems integration provides both operational and business management oriented benefits Better ROI by maximizing your existing IT systems
