BROOMFIELD, CA, May 10, 2017 – Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, announced that Valencia Water Company (VWC), California, has chosen InfoWater, InfoMaster and SCADAWatch to support its smart water initiative.
VWC is a private water company with approximately 32,000 water service connections in the Santa Clarita Valley, including Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, and portions of Newhall, Saugus and Castaic. Its water network comprises 364 miles of water mains.
“Innovyze geocentric advanced smart water technology gives us the tools we need to help us better operate, manage and sustain our water distribution system at maximum effectiveness and cost-savings,” said Jose Leon Huerta, GISP, Supervisor/Planner in VWC’s Engineering Department. “These capabilities aid in improving our water system performance and resiliency.”
Unlike competing products, InfoWater’s innovative network modeling technology addresses every facet of water utility infrastructure management and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) and winner of the ArcGIS for Desktop Based Application Award, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, the suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their transmission and distribution systems.
SCADAWatch allows utilities to better leverage and consolidate their hydraulic and water quality modeling, GIS and SCADA into one powerful business software application — allowing information flows that are faster, analytically optimized and actionable. Users can instantly create, view and interactively analyze presentation-quality reports on a real-time, information-rich business dashboard fully customized to their needs, getting an at-a-glance perspective of system performance.
Certified by NASSCO PACP, MACP and LACP, InfoMaster is the leading software choice for utilities faced with optimizing their water infrastructure resiliency and sustainability. It can accurately estimate both the likelihood and consequence of failure for each individual main in the network, as well as the amount and time of occurrence of future failures. This critical information facilitates a proactive approach to identifying and managing these high-risk assets to help preserve structural integrity and keep the network operating well into the future. It also eliminates reactive maintenance: waiting for pipe failures to occur before repairing. With minimal effort, users can quickly pinpoint assets at the greatest risk of hydraulic and water quality deficiencies or structural failure, identify the best possible improvement alternatives for optimal system performance, prioritize improvements based on available budget, and realize significant cost savings. The software also serves as a base platform for advanced strategic asset management extensions, including InfoMaster LCCA. This powerful extension lets users determine the optimal scheduling of water main replacement based on economic life-cycle cost analysis.
“Progressive utilities all over the world continue to recognize the benefits of Innovyze advanced smart water technology,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, chief executive officer of Innovyze. “The fact that progressive utilities like VWC continue to choose Innovyze as their solution partner clearly demonstrates the superiority of our products. We’re very proud to know that our software applications are in place at many of the world’s best-run utility companies of every size, helping them meet their corporate and strategic goals and achieve world-class performance at breakthrough cost savings. Innovyze is very proud to partner in VWC’s success.”
