Water pipeline leakage presents an opportunity for utility companies to significantly improve operating efficiency. The pilot project will see Rezatec provide Utilities Kingston with Artificial Intelligence and Geospatial Analytics. These insights will then allow the utility company to verify that the deployment of acoustic loggers and other ground resources, and repair and maintenance schedules could be significantly optimized by using this technology across the entire municipal system.
“Utilities Kingston is dedicated to the responsible management of community infrastructure. We’re excited to pilot leading-edge tools to reduce system water loss, which have the potential to improve the water-efficiency of the system we operate,” says Jim Keech, president and CEO of Utilities Kingston.
“Our goal is to help our clients to make more informed critical asset management decisions to reduce leaks, improve margins, gain competitive advantage and optimize asset management for their customers,” says Phillip Briscoe, Chief Operating Officer of Rezatec. “We are very pleased to add Utilities Kingston to our growing list of international water clients spanning Europe, United States, Australia, Philippines and now Canada.”
With the benefits of Artificial Intelligence and satellite data, Rezatec’s goal is to reduce pipeline leakage by detecting the risk of leaks before they happen and as a result stop them from occurring. Work with Utilities Kingston is set to begin in November 2018 and the pilot is expected to last for up to three months.
