WaterGEMS provides you with a comprehensive yet easy-to-use decision-support tool for water distribution networks. The software helps improve your knowledge of how infrastructure behaves as a system, how it reacts to operational strategies, and how it should grow as population and demands increase.
Intelligent planning for system reliability
The capability of the water network to adequately serve its customers must be evaluated whenever system growth is anticipated. With WaterGEMS, effectively identify potential problem areas, accommodate service area growth, and plan capital improvements.
Analyze pipe and valve criticality
Find the weak links in water distribution systems and assess the adequacy of isolation valves. Evaluate the ability to isolate portions of the system and serve customers using different valve locations
Design water distribution networks
Use hydraulic model results to help optimize the design of complex water distribution systems and utilize built-in scenario management features to keep track of design alternatives. Alternatively, WaterGEMS users can optimize the design for you using the built-in Darwin Designer network optimization tool.
Manage energy use
Model pumps accurately using hydraulic modeling, including complex pump combinations and variable speed pumps, to understand the impact that different pump operational strategies have on energy usage. Minimize energy related to pumping costs while maximizing system performance.
Prioritize pipe renewal
Identify the pipes that should be considered for replacement or repair. Pipe links are ranked based on several aspects, including property- and performance-based criteria. Benefits that result include improved asset planning, increased distribution capacity, and maximum returns on capital expenditures.
