Smart Water Utilities

Smart Water Utilities

26th 27th November 2019

W Hotel Amsterdam

Roger Ironmonger will be speaking about pinpointing leaks at this conference in Amsterdam. Primayer technology can pinpoint leaks accurately in plastic as well as metal pipes, something which is of great interest to Dutch leakage engineers in the Netherlands, where a high percentage of the water network is made plastic. He will show how water companies in the UK and around the world have crashed through leakage targets set by the regulator by deploying fixed networks of correlating acoustic loggers. Roger together with David Green will be demonstrating the technology on the Primayer stand. Come and say hello!

Amba Hotel, Marble Arch, London UK

Not only is Primayer sponsoring the 10th Global Leakage Summit, but also Managing Director Roger Ironmonger will be speaking on managing water loss with fixed correlating networks of detectors: how they work, where they are used and how they help us.

GLS is the worldforum for water leakage management, designed to help water utilities develop faster and more efficient systems, that go beyond economic levels of leakage and reflect the true value of water and supply delivery targets.

As an international platform for those delivering improved efficiency, the GLS draws in world-wide practitioners, from industry leaders such as: Suez Environnement, Paris ; Vienna Waterworks, Austria ; Thames Water, UK ; Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority, Cambodia ; Al Ain Distribution Company, UAE ; Oslo Water, Norway ; Scottish Water, UK ; Municipal Water, Poland ; Taiwan Water, Taiwan ; Pub Singapore, Singapore ; Anglian Water, UK and many others.

Past summits have proved to be a high-quality information-sharing opportunity for delegates, at both a technical and strategic level. Delegates discuss new concepts and technologies, managing water pressure, optimising networks and cost-effective solutions to water scarcity. Summit participants are all driving down leakage to an increasingly low level to meet customer expectations, conserve precious resources and maximise revenue.
