i2O Water puts water companies in remote control of network pressures

Posted: Monday 7th October 2013

Proven PRV Remote Control technology available as standalone offering for the first time.

i2O Water has announced general availability of its PRV Remote Control technology as a discrete offering. Today’s launch significantly expands the opportunity for water companies to manage network pressure without the need for costly site visits to monitor and manually adjust each PRV.

i2O’s PRV Remote Control, which includes a unique combination of feature rich intuitive software, PRV controller and patented advanced pilot valve (APV), enables precise control of network pressures based on logged inlet and critical point data. The technology offers three levels of remote control, from fixed outlet pressure setting to time based and flow modulation control. All settings can be adjusted remotely over GPRS and i2O’s secure web application.

The technology enables water companies to implement common pressure management strategies without the need for costly site visits. It also allows them to set pressure profiles remotely to minimise leakage and bursts. PRV Remote Control facilitates a rapid and efficient response to weather pattern changes, network events or customer feedback. This elegant solution reduces operational costs, minimises leakage and bursts and provides much improved levels of customer service.

More than 60 water companies around the world are already using i2O’s Remote Control functionality to manage pressures in their water networks and are realising the benefits of the solution.

Adam Kingdon, CEO and co-founder of i2O Water, comments: “By making our PRV Remote Control functionality available as a standalone solution, we are enabling water companies to increase the breadth of deployments of Advanced Pressure Management technology and in so doing significantly increase their environmental and efficiency benefits. Our unique combination of software and hardware is already revolutionising how clients perform pressure management tasks, dramatically reduce operational costs and helping deliver better customer service.”

Lucas Liendo, NRW Manager at Aguas Kpital Cúcuta, comments: “i2O’s PRV Remote Control system has enabled Aguas Kpital Cúcuta to reduce minimum night flow by 40 per cent and reduce burst frequency by 35 per cent. The software is highly intuitive and enables us to safely change or check PRV pressure settings without site visits or impacting customer service.”
