Will implement WaterGEMS and HAMMER software to improve efficiency and reduce water loss
Bentley Systems Inc., a sustainable infrastructure software company, announced that Tianjin Waterworks Group Co. Ltd., a Chinese waterworks companies, has chosen Bentley’s WaterGEMS and HAMMER software to improve its water supply service, decrease operational costs and extend the life of its water infrastructure. WaterGEMS enhances water distribution and modeling capabilities and HAMMER provides transient analysis to limit water loss. Together, they will provide Tianjin Waterworks Group with reliable data for the management of its water network and pump scheduling optimization to help reduce water loss and save energy.
With its more than 6,200 kilometers of pipeline, Tianjin Waterworks Group serves approximately 5.22 million people living in and around Tianjin, one of the four direct-controlled municipalities in China. Switching from manual methods to the use of hydraulic analysis software will enable the company to calculate energy consumption, detect water leakage and provide workflows to improve efficiency. Using Bentley software for transient analysis will enable the company to establish a set of new work processes to save time and cost and increase the reliability of Tianjin’s water supply.
Christopher Liew, Bentley vice president, Greater China, said, “We are extremely pleased that Tianjin Waterworks Group has joined the growing number of water utilites around the globe that are using Bentley’s water solution, including our WaterGEMS and HAMMER products, to reduce both water loss and energy costs, thus preserving local water resources. We look forward to further serving the company’s water and information modeling needs through our comprehensive portfolio of robust software as we continue our mission of supporting the economic development of China while sustaining the environment.”
