Operations leaders at wastewater treatment plants face unprecedented challenges due to aging infrastructure, increased regulatory burden, the need to achieve more with less and an aging workforce. Operators and engineers must keep their plants running at peak performance but often with limited visibility into equipment performance, asset condition and system dependencies. This leads to inefficient plant operations, high maintenance costs, equipment failures and unplanned shutdowns.
Solution: The nD platform was used to create a purpose-built wastewater treatment digital twin solution to address the unique needs and challenges of this vital industry. The Software-as-a-Service offering combines wastewater treatment digital twin models and templates, machine learning, advanced pattern recognition and problem remediation tools. It enables plant operators to identify asset anomalies in near-real time to prevent costly equipment and operational failures while optimizing equipment performance. The solution was designed for rapid deployment and payback.
