Thames Water is piloting the real-time monitoring system Accenture Smart Grid in an attempt to deliver improved services.
The utility company is six months into an 18-month pilot, powered by Accenture Analytics, which will look at new ways of working using a single view of its operating systems and assets, such as pipe and treatment facilities.
Accenture will implement advanced analytics capabilities, which will enable more efficient water sourcing and remote monitoring of assets. The information and data will help the utility anticipate equipment failures and respond in near real-time to critical situations, such as leaks or adverse weather events.
“We are committed to improving the efficiency of our operations through more intelligent data insights. This pilot will provide us with a clear framework for the benefits that can be realised,” said Martin Dangerfield, head of PR14 and wholesale plan at Thames Water. “We selected Accenture to help us with this programme due to its deep understanding of our needs, expertise in systems integration and similar experience in other sectors.”
