Rezatec partners with MeterSYS to deploy pipeline risk assessment tool across US
The solutions will include Rezatec’s pipeline risk assessment tool, which combines satellite data with machine learning techniques to produce likelihood and consequence of failure risk maps, identifying areas of the network at highest risk of critical failure.
By implementing Rezatec’s pipeline risk assessment analytics, utilities have a complete view of the risk across entire networks to be able to make fast, accurate and affordable data driven asset management decisions.
“We already have a strong suite of technologies, by adding Rezatec’s satellite analytics we will continue to provide our clients with leading technology solutions to optimize asset management,” commented Roger Brook, smart cities manager at MeterSYS. “We are so far very impressed with Rezatec’s capabilities and look forward to working with them.”
The partnership is expected to help to save on the cost sensors, as well as optimising the use of those installed. With over 250,000 mains breaks per year in the US alone, the two companies will continue helping utilities to reduce the amount of non-revenue water and optimise leak detection. The break data from the sensors can then be fed back in the model, which then continues getting smarter at predicting which pipes are most likely to fail.
“We are excited to be working with MeterSYS, continuing to demonstrate our excellence providing satellite technology to water utility network operators,” added Philip Briscoe, COO at Rezatec. “We look forward to expanding into new areas within the US by helping utilities to ultimately reduce non-revenue water and optimise their asset management.”
