Scottish Water adopts new Phocus3 to reduce leakage

Scottish Water have recently partnered with Primayer to reduce leakage in some key areas of their water network

Their Glasgow based teams have used Primayer’s innovative technology to pinpoint leaks and the results have been promising.  Using a combination of approaches Scottish Water technicians have been able to investigate leakage within distinct problem areas of the water supply network . They have done this by narrowing down potential leakage areas using acoustic logging and then closing in on leaks by utilising accurate pinpointing correlating techniques.

The “leak locating” process outlined in the case study above  is highly scaleable and ongoing works by the team at Scottish Water have recently successfully identified and repaired several leaks (see below for some examples). The leak identification and repair process adopted by Scottish Water aims to deliver ongoing further impressive results. All leaks repaired to date have made significant long term savings to the water supply to the area.
