Customer expectations are on the rise. They expect smarter, faster, and more efficient water services. There’s no easy way to stay in step with these growing expectations without actionable data from a smart water network.
As water utilities evolve into customer focused operations, data is more critical than ever.
With customers expecting smarter, faster, and more efficient services, it’s essential to gather meaningful and actionable data. By embracing smart solutions, you can deliver a quality customer experience and engage better with water consumers.
In this context, ‘smart water’ has become a popular term. As an integrated set of solutions, a smart water network enables utilities to remotely and continuously monitor the network. This includes managing maintenance issues and using data to optimise all aspects of the water and wastewater networks.
For example, through real-time monitoring and optimisation of wells and pumps, you can optimise a pump’s efficiency, and use alerts to generate warning should operating conditions deviate from the control. Likewise, with the right data to hand, you can reduce energy costs while maximising operational performance. This allows you to ensure operational efficiency and water delivery by maintaining consistency and reliability of operations.
Smart water networks empower you to deliver better and more efficient services, as well as maximise the return on investment, optimise energy consumption, and preserve water resources.
SUEZ helps water utilities in being more customer focused. Our solutions help you achieve your business objectives.
AQUADVANCED® Water Networks tracks data throughout the network system. The technology indicates when it’s necessary to conduct hydraulic and water quality analysis of drinking water networks for assessment and optimisation. This capability allows you to:

In Bordeaux, SUEZ’s AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage was adopted at the end of 2012 to manage the city’s stormwater and wastewater networks, and ultimately anticipate flood risks.
After one year of operation, the volume of discharged water was reduced by 30%.
In Macau, in 2014, AQUADVANCED® Water Networks helped reduce the water loss rate to 8.8%.
