Schneider Electric Introduces Water Network Optimization: A Real-time, Smart Water Solution

  • Transform network management from reactive to proactive with rich dashboards to better forecast leakages or potential service breaches

  • Visualize contextualized operational data without switching between applications, avoiding operator need for in-depth hydraulic knowledge

  • Increase operational efficiency by delivering notifications directly to operational field managers

NEW ORLEANS, La. – Sept. 26, 2016 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today introduced Water Network Optimization (WNO) Suite, a Water and Wastewater industry solution powered by Aquis 7.0 and built on Wonderware System Platform. Water network operators can use WNO to acquire and centralize real-time data from network critical points for complete visibility and control of their water distribution network.

The water industry, among others, faces the challenge of doing more with less. Infrastructure asset lifecycles must be extended, drought conditions have created significant sourcing and demand forecasting difficulties, and increasingly stringent regulations must now be adhered to. At the same time, greater focus on sustainability, energy cost and carbon reductions are putting new pressure on operations.

Water Network Optimization Suite is a new industry solution from Schneider Electric that delivers both real-time and "future-time" visibility into Water and Wastewater networks. This offers operators the ability to perform “what-if” analysis of potential maintenance actions (e.g. isolate a section of the network for maintenance and simulate the impact on delivery pressure through the next 48 hours).

“Water Network Optimization Suite brings the complexity and specialization of advanced hydraulic modeling/analytics into a simplified operations environment that is familiar to water utility personnel, ”said Doug Warren, Vice President, Industry Solutions at Schneider Electric. “This helps Water Utilities to address workforce transformation challenges, while at the same time lowering maintenance costs and avoiding service disruptions to water consumers”

WNO is supported by Customer FIRST, Schneider Electric’s software maintenance and support program, which is a flexible portfolio of services that help protect and extend the value of a Schneider Electric Industry Solution across its entire lifecycle. A Customer FIRST Agreement establishes a formal service relationship with Schneider Electric, enabling access to the latest software upgrades while providing expert technical assistance, optional services and self-help tools to help improve operational effectiveness.
