i2O Water, Jalur Cahaya, Suez Environment and eThikwini Water and Sanitation present implementation case studies of i2O’s innovative technology at Water Loss 2012 conference in Philippines, 26-29 February 2012
i2O Water is very pleased to have had three innovative customers present papers on their successful implementations of i2O systems at three very distinct environments in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, respectively.
Strategic implementation partner Jalur Cahaya Sdn Bhd described how it achieved very significant leakage savings and burst reductions through installation of the i2O integrated network management system at Syabas in Selangor, Malaysia. Jalur Cahaya presented “Delivery of 40 million liters/day Leakage Reduction Through Intelligent Pressure Control”, which is based on the successful rollout of more than 200 i2O systems. The objective of the project was to urgently reduce leakage and leak repair costs in order to improve water resource availability in Selangor, the Malaysian region that includes Kuala Lumpur.

Suez Environment presented a paper on how the i2O system helped to optimize pressure and reduce water leakage across two trial distribution zones in the City of Jeddah. The results showed a 14% and 20% reduction in pressure across both zones, respectively. Suez presented on the topic: Distribution Zones Implementation and Pressure Management: An Advanced Distribution Solution for the City of Jeddah.
eThikwini presented strong results from its implementation of i2O, highlighting how the system helped improve pressure management in the Durban Central Business District, while reducing leakage and new bursts and maintaining levels of customer service. eThikwini presented on the topic: The Evaluation Of Decision Variables For The Rehabilitation Of Water Mains And The Case Study Of Mains Rehabilitation In Durban, South Africa.
i2O Water Chief Technology Officer Andrew Burrows also presented a paper on Applying Intelligent Technologies to Optimise Distribution Pump Pressures. In his presentation, Mr. Burrows discussed the technology behind reducing both leakage and energy consumption by optimising pumps pressure. His presentation included results from two different case studies in Europe.
The event, which alternates locations and takes place every 18-24 months, was organised by the International Water Association (IWA) Water Loss Specialist Group. The objective of the event was to present and discuss the latest developments, strategies, techniques and applications of international best practices in Non-Revenue Water Management.
