MTS launched a solution for collecting and analyzing information from pressure sensors and metering devices for water supply systems. The service allows you to prevent accidents at the earliest stages and reduce the costs of resource supplying organizations by balancing water consumption.
The solution is a software package that allows you to identify illegal tie-ins and unaccounted consumption on water supply lines, as well as record pressure drops in pipes. Devices for collecting and transmitting data (USPD) from existing meters and pressure sensors are installed at end users and at control points. Also, DRCs are mounted on flow meters at pumping stations for taking readings on total water consumption, calculating the balance of water consumption, determining the places of maximum losses and possible thefts.
Water level control and transmission of its values are carried out automatically at a given frequency. Data from devices is transmitted online over the NB-IoT network and is analyzed by the system using Big Data, which allows you to compare meter readings for different periods and identify emergency situations. Operation on the NB-IoT network provides ease of installation for equipment that can operate without external power supplies for up to 10 years.
The user can also independently configure the response system: choose which indicators change will be recorded in the online journal for subsequent processing and taking corrective measures, include SMS, e-mail notifications or Telegram notifications.
As a result of a pilot project with the Kopeisk water supply and sewerage systems municipal unitary enterprise in the Chelyabinsk region, using the MTS Digital Vodokanal solution, an online monitoring system for the volume of water entering the city was set up, settlements were verified with the supplier, as a result of which a water utility overpayment to the supplier of more than than 150 thousand cubic meters. The system also made it possible to quickly respond to emergencies. During the operation, the equipment was found to be out of order, due to the incorrect operation of which the city received three times less water. The system notified the responsible persons about the problem areas and the city’s water supply was fully restored in a short time.
“According to the data of resource supplying organizations, the total losses in the water supply networks are more than 100 billion rubles. in year. Vodokanals are faced with data distortion and unaccounted consumption, and it is difficult to control settlement services, most of the operations are performed manually. MTS presented a comprehensive product that greatly simplifies the identification of the fact of accidents and allows you to significantly reduce the volume of losses in water supply systems. Pilot projects have fully demonstrated the effectiveness of the solution, “- said the Vice President for Internet of Things and Industrial Automation of MTS Armen Avetisyan…
