IVL Flow Control bring reductions in leak and burst frequencies to Bournemouth Water

Jan 25 2017 Comments 0

Bournemouth Water has redesigned much of its network to use intelligent network calming and pressure management valves produced by IVL Flow Control to reduce leakage.

Initially, 13 of the company’s District Metering Areas (DMAs) were set up, with a further 50 DMAs covered by October 2016, significantly reducing leakage.

This successful project uses IVL Flow Control’s 2-way and 3-way pressure management valves and HWM Radcom Pegasus controllers. Bournemouth Water used fully calibrated network models to forecast the benefits and to set targets which have been realised.

Paul Johnstone, Network Modelling Performance Manager at South West Water, commented: “Capital investment in this project, using IVL Flow Control valves, has resulted in huge benefits, achieving reductions in leak and burst frequencies and creating a more efficient and intelligent network”.

Craig Stanners, Director of IVL Flow Control, added: “Bournemouth Water has been very forward-thinking in its decision to introduce state-of-the art pressure management, which sets a very good example for the industry”.

The network supplying over half of the population served by Bournemouth Water is now covered by the new pressure management regime.
