2023 USE CASE LoRaWAN -enabled Flowserve solution helps Anglian Water Reduce Costs and Downtime MORE EFFICIENT UTILITIES Anglian Water, one of the largest water utility providers in the UK, was facing increasing pressure to improve the reliability of its equipment. To address this challenge, the company implemented RedRaven, a Predictive Maintenance (PdM) service from Flowserve. The service includes Condition-Based Monitoring (CBM), which incorporates LoRaWAN wireless technology. With RedRaven, Anglian Water was able to increase the efficiency of its predictive maintenance to avoid unscheduled shutdown, while also lowering costs and downtime. THE LoRaWAN -ENABLED REDRAVEN SOLUTION RedRaven combines wireless LoRaWAN -enabled sensors with an advanced insight visualization portal (Insight Portal) to help utilities proactively identify and address issues before they cause downtime and disruptions. Placed on a range of equipment, the sensors collect vibration, temperature, and pressure data. The data is transferred securely via LoRaWAN to the Insight Portal, where it can be monitored by the utility's technicians. Importantly, RedRaven's Monitoring Center also uses the data to provide technical insights and recommendations that help operators make more informed decisions to improve plant efficiency, productivity, and reliability. FULL-SCALE ROLLOUT After successfully proving the RedRaven solution at four sites, Anglian Water implemented a full CBM Framework solution across all its clean water monitoring and recycled water operations – for up to 900 assets over a five-year period. With RedRaven, Anglian Water is: • Changing its culture around predictive maintenance to reduce unexpected downtime • Using valuable operational insights to increase efficiency • Saving time, expenses, and work hours through better maintenance planning ENSURING CONSISTENT WATER SUPPLY TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE For large water utilities, understanding the performance of their equipment and assets is essential. With the correct knowledge, the utility can avoid unplanned maintenance or breakdown stoppages, ensuring a consistent supply of water to end-users and avoiding any potential fines. This requires a Condition-Based Monitoring solution that can: • Be easily implemented wirelessly across wide distances • Deliver 24/7 remote monitoring • Enable immediate alert/alarm notifications • Enable trend analysis insights Smart Utilities Europe Solution Provider COMPANY CONTACT INFO: Flowserve Francesco Gasparri, Global IoT Commercial Manager Tel: +39 335 1933 297 Email:
