Satellite data analytics to detect and predict water pipeline leaks in Australia

By [email protected] - 21st September 2016 - 15:07

Rezatec is commencing an innovative project with Australian water and sewerage utility, Unitywater. This project aims to help Unitywater reduce water loss, improve operational efficiency and reduce below ground asset management costs. Unitywater provides water supply and sewerage services to customers located on the east coast of Australia, just north of Brisbane, Queensland. Its priority is to provide a fast-growing customer base with a high quality, safe and reliable water supply and sewerage service that is economically and environmentally sustainable. As part of this approach, Unitywater is now trialling Rezatec’s pipeline leakage detection satellite data analytics service on a 200km2 area of the Sunshine Coast combining both rural and urban areas. The first phase of the project focuses on a retrospective analysis of actual leakage data and the second phase will be to accurately monitor and predict future pipeline leaks in a live trial.
