Aquamatix delivers real-time performance for Veolia Water at Tidworth, UK

EXTON, Pa. --(Business Wire)--

Software company Aquamatix has helped deliver a comprehensive solution for the monitoring and optimization of Veolia Water's water and sewerage services in Tidworth, Wiltshire, UK. Utilizing its cloud-based WaterWorX™ software, a real-time solution that integrates operational and fixed asset data has been developed. It has also delivered an SMS and voice alarm facility for out-of-hours alerts, creating a virtual control center.

Veolia Water has provided water and sewerage services to domestic and commercial customers in the Tidworth and Perham Down areas since 2007. Until recently the assets were monitored and controlled at a centralized facility that also served Veolia Water's previously owned regulated water businesses. Tidworth comprises self-contained water and wastewater systems and provides an ideal opportunity to develop and test smart water networks and performance-based water management systems.

Veolia Water's Dave Nicholl, said: "We had a pressing need to implement a monitoring and control system. Aquamatix interpreted our needs and worked with us to deliver a cost-effective and tailored solution that has not only replaced the control center, it has improved our visibility of on the ground operations, allowing us to make more informed decisions about our asset operations."

Project Management, installation and commissioning was provided by Z-Tech Systems Ltd. Systems Director, Patrick Heaton said: "WaterWorX offered a standard solution which will potentially reduce development time and cost for new installations. The idea of an opex license for SCADA will be an attractive option for some of our customers seeking to reduce cost and improve efficiency of their water assets."

Powered by ThingWorx™, the world's first software application platform that combines key functionality of eb 2.0, search, and social collaboration, WaterWorX™ connects water industry assets without the need for investment in expensive bespoke hardware and software.

Laurie Reynolds, Managing Director of Aquamatix, said: "it's a real-time monitoring solution that extends beyond the capability of conventional SCADA systems by integrating data with other operational systems, such as asset management and GIS. Whilst the current Tidworth project has simply replaced the existing telemetry alarm reporting system and is a step change towards real-time operations."

Aquamatix is a software and services company providing specialist integration of real-time systems and data for water and wastewater operations and asset management. We are adapting technologies and standards from smart grid and Internet of things and applying them to the water industry. Our WaterWorX™ platform enables real-time measurements and performance data to be combined with asset and GIS data to gain new knowledge and understanding of asset condition and system performance. The insight gained can be used to optimize new investment to balance capacity, obsolescence, demand and risk.
