  1. ABB Ability Collaborative Operations For Power Generation And Water Video
    8/3/2018

    In this new era of digitalization, close collaboration between partners is vital to reap the full benefits that big data and analytics offer. The approach that enables digital collaboration is ABB Ability™ Collaborative Operations - a remote operations and maintenance model that helps power generation companies harness the potential of digitalization.

  2. Unleashing Smart SCADA
    7/10/2018

    When it comes to the future of utility management, every arrow points toward greater adoption of 'smart' systems. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is smart, in a sense, but the mere existence of a SCADA system at your facility won't maximize efficiency and optimization. The capabilities and opportunities available to utilities through data and analytics are going largely untapped, according to two experts who joined Water Online for Water Talk, but a new initiative could help unlock its ever-growing potential.

  3. Permanent Monitoring Turns Snapshots Into A Movie
    7/3/2018

    Fifteen years ago, the water industry was deeply beholden to mechanical meter reading. But as Barry Hales, President of Matchpoint Inc., points out in this Water Talk interview, the evolution of electrical systems has created a new wave of data for utilities to become far better informed about their infrastructure and assets.

  4. GIS Solution Chosen To Streamline Utility In Huntsville, AL
    5/8/2018

    Huntsville Utilities is a multi-utility that had three different engineering departments using three sets of software for their designs and instruction drawings. Watch the video to learn how the utility chose Bentley Systems’ GIS Solution as a design and management tool to streamline design and speed up the design process.

    You will learn how your organization will benefit from using the new capabilities.

  6. Wastewater Network Modeling and Analysis
    4/24/2018

    Bentley’s Wastewater Network Modeling and Analysis solution provides decision support capabilities to optimize network capacity and improve operations.  Hydraulic analysis allows you to evaluate capacity, identify bottlenecks in your existing or proposed piping and pumping networks, and design improvements needed to accommodate the growing demand for service and emergency response.

  7. Stormwater Modeling and Analysis
    4/24/2018

    Bentley’s Stormwater Modeling and Analysis solution enables designers to analyze and explore innovative stormwater design options and efficiently manage project deliverables.  Using hydrologic and hydraulic calculations helps you understand how rainfall translates into stormwater runoff and interacts with streets, channels, pipes, ponds and related stormwater infrastructure.

  8. Prolagos – Innovative Use Of WaterGEMS
    4/23/2018

    Prolagos, a subsidiary of Aegea, provides water and sewerage services to five municipalities in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The 2041 Master Plan project aims to expand the water supply system for Região dos Lagos (Region of the Lakes) over short-, medium-, and long-term horizons. In the short term, Prolagos built 4 large pumping stations, 30 requlation tanks, and a new trunk main spanning 300 km that will increase the transport capacity by 30%, reduce energy consumption by 55% and deal with seasonal population fluctuations.

  9. CivilStorm - All-In-One Stormwater Management
    4/19/2018

    CivilStorm can accurately model a wide range of stormwater infrastructure configurations and hydraulic elements arrangements, from closed conduits and channels, to ponds and outlets, and low impact development controls.

  10. StormCAD Product Overview – Straight-Forward Storm Sewer Design
    4/18/2018

    Stormwater drainage systems are complex networks of gutters, inlets, and pipes. Analyzing these elements together is impossible for using traditional hand or spreadsheet calculations, and designing storm sewer components iteratively is too cumbersome, even for most hydraulic software.  StormCAD helps you plan and design your entire drainage system cost effectively and efficiently.
