An international engineering consulting group, headquartered in Denmark, engaged Euristiq for the end-to-end app development of an integrated utility monitoring system (UMS) for asset management. The IoT-based UMS can automatically gather utility companies’ data from all sources in a utility network, analyze it and present it as key performance indicators, following the general standards developed by the Danish Water Association and Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark. The solution monitors conditions and performance online, identifying areas for maintenance work and improvement.
After careful consideration of the client’s requirements, we developed a holistic utility monitoring system for online monitoring of performance indicators. We developed sophisticated rules engine for metric analysis and alarm triggering – a complex UI and backend. This enables users to add custom rules for monitoring utility conditions that trigger alarms.
Web-based management information system
The system integrates with the utilities company’s existing IT platform and collects metric data from different sources in a utility network, such as Aquis, SCADA, GIS, CIS, asset management, finance, etc. It can generate management reports, creating a unified platform for control and follow-ups.
Online monitoring of performance indicators
The collected data is transformed into valuable performance indicators and key figures that are displayed on the map. The utility management system monitors processes on a daily basis and allows users to react to any deviations from the rules and make corrections.
Identification of improvement areas for utility companies
If the key figures do not meet the goals, the IoT-based UMS identifies and prioritizes areas for maintenance work and improvement.
Essentially, the custom utility monitoring system we developed monitors the condition of the utility’s distribution network and then identifies and prioritizes areas for maintenance work and improvement.
The system contributes to more than x10 decrease in time for troubleshooting and problem resolution and reduces operating costs by at least 10-15%. Combined with other products developed by the client, the system helps reduce high water loss in Oslo, Norway.
