OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black & Veatch has partnered with FATHOM Water Management, Inc., to offer ASSET360™ data analytics applications on their recently launched online marketplace. The FATHOM Store allows water utilities to purchase and quickly adopt smart analytics services, risk-free.
The FATHOM Store offers innovative water technologies for utilities that help streamline business processes, recover revenue and better engage with customers.
“Water providers are looking for ways to integrate smart solutions now more than ever,” said Cindy Wallis-Lage, President of Black & Veatch’s water business. “However, many struggle with how to start finding, adapting and implementing new technologies. The FATHOM Store bridges this gap, allowing utilities ready to improve water use efficiency to acquire ASSET360™ asset management solutions that provide powerful, actionable intelligence.”
ASSET360™ analytics tools visually interpret data to enable informed and timely decision-making for maximum system performance. Applications now available on the FATHOM Store include:
- Water Performance Analyst: The Water Performance Analyst uses system performance data to aggregate and calculate key performance indicators (KPIs) for assets in a water, wastewater, or water reuse system. Calculations focus on energy and chemical use and the corresponding cost to pump or treat the water.
- Combined Heat & Power Performance Analyst: The Combined Heat & Power Performance Analyst provides performance monitoring and optimization tools for combined heat and power systems at wastewater treatment facilities. Real-time operational data analytics track KPIs such as digester gas production, storage, thermal and electrical output and equipment up-time and reliability. Financial performance is measured by capturing energy production and calculating electricity savings and revenue against operations and maintenance costs.
- Water Membrane Performance Analyst: The Water Membrane Performance Analyst monitors the performance of a membrane system in terms of energy consumption, fouling potential and cleaning effectiveness. The application provides feedback on the short-term and long-term health of the membrane, and facilitates comparison across trains and cleaning techniques.
