Envirosuite and Western Australia’s Water Corporation enter into SeweX proof of concept
Envirosuite has announced the award of a proof-of-concept project with Western Australia’s Water Corporation for SeweX.
EVS Water’s SeweX solution is a mathematical modelling tool detailing and predicting the physical, chemical and biological processes in sewers. The proof of concept is to monitor the sewer network and provide insights that reduce future costs of odour and corrosion management, improve efficient asset allocation related to safety, and extend network life.
Water Corporation is Western Australia’s principal supplier of water, wastewater, drainage and bulk irrigation services. The state-owned organisation supplies over 2 million people across the state with clean drinking water and takes away almost 450 million L of wastewater a day. It operates 113 wastewater treatment plants across the state, each critical in helping ensure liveability, sustainability and climate resilience in Western Australia.
This project will demonstrate the SeweX product for water utilities, which provides proactive management of corrosion, odour and safety in sewer networks related to sulfide and methane. SeweX is designed to help water utilities to safely manage the biological processes occurring within sewer networks and improve the health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance, while avoiding and mitigating costly network disruption.
Jason Cooper, CEO at Envirosuite, comments, “We’re thrilled to partner with an innovative water supplier like Water Corporation who are committed to sustainable growth, upholding the health, safety and environmental requirements of their operations, while taking action on climate change. Our EVS Water solutions help companies to monitor and manage their essential infrastructure and networks, while reducing the emissions impact on the environment and the surrounding communities. Projects such as this one advance the strategic need for digital solutions to help lessen the magnitude of climate change. We believe that every major town in the world is a potential customer for SeweX and this is a step towards that vision.”
