Siemens data platform helps Northumbrian Water to tackle household leaks 

Siemens data platform helps Northumbrian Water to tackle household leaks 

The water utility is undergoing a major rollout of smart meters, which report data back to the cloud on an hourly basis. The Siemens Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution will allow NWG to analyse this data to identify household consumption anomalies and alert customers of potential leaks on their properties. 
The system will ultimately help NWG to meet UK water regulator Ofwat’s targets for reducing leakages and per capita consumption. The utility services 4.5 million people in the North East of England, and in the South East as Essex & Suffolk Water. 
Siemens collaborated with NWG’s team to design, develop, test and launch the meter data management SaaS, which is powered by the technology company’s EnergyIP® software. It represents the largest solution of its kind implemented by Siemens for the water industry in Europe, and its largest deployment of grid software to date. 
EnergyIP® MDM X for Water is part of Siemens Xcelerator, the company’s digital business platform, enabling customers to accelerate their digital transformation easier, faster, and at scale. 
Sabine Erlinghagen, CEO of Grid Software at Siemens Smart Infrastructure, said: “Water is a precious resource, and we need to deal with it in the most sustainable way possible. EnergyIP® MDM X will enable NWG to make the best use of their data to reduce leakage and water consumption across their network. We’re supporting the water industry by providing purposeful software technology for greater customer impact and sustainability.” 
Gary Adams, Head of Smart Transformation at NWG, said: “The EnergyIP® MDM implementation is a critical cornerstone in our smart metering journey, allowing us to effectively manage the large volumes of metering data we will receive and to drive efficient operational activity for both our customers and our wider business providing access to granular smart data at the click of a button. Being able to rely on Siemens expertise in this area gives us confidence that we can achieve our smart metering ambitions now and, in the future.”
