Water New Zealand and the Digital Water Special Interest Group is pleased to host the following webinar:
Facilitated by Michael Howden - Beca
Getting the basics right is the foundation of digital development for the water sector. To this end the Quake Centre’s Building Innovation Partnership (BIP) is publishing a Code of Practice (CoP) which defines a minimum viable standard for asset data. From this foundation, we will present and share a number of tools to improve nationally consistent and automated methodologies for as-built capture; development of useful life, performance and risk of failure models for pipes, nationally consistent valuations; tracking infectious agents through sewerage systems; developing digital twins to assess the impacts of flooding in urban areas. We are also exploring the interoperability of data with other utilities to begin building a National Digital Infrastructure Model (NDIM).
Leveraging the increasing availability of high-quality environmental data and advance analytics have led to the development of a digital Route Optimiser for the pipeline design process, making it possible to construct pipelines quicker and cheaper, reduce embodied carbon and whole-life costs to minimise social and environmental impacts. The Route Optimiser uses a powerful genetic algorithm to optimise pipeline routes in 3 dimensions, based on geospatial constraints, topographical inputs, engineering design rules, and real construction and operational costs.
National Performance Review is an annual performance assessment of drinking
water, wastewater and stormwater service delivery co-ordinated by Water New
Zealand. Lesley’s presentation will focus on some of the most common
opportunities for improvement across New Zealand. Webinar participants will
have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts on where improvement is
needed the most, setting the stage for the digital solutions conference
