Every project starts with an analisys of the status of the network and a demostration of Blue Gold solution.

The first step of the analisys is always the assessment of the network which define the strategy for the optimization of every network and includes:

  • Evolved Network Modelling of the water distribution systems

  • Definition of the Points of Measure according with the customer needs and expectations

  • Blue Gold's instruments with connectivity and measure services (on cloud)

  • Definition of the baseline of the water distribution systems

  • Asset's assessment or audit (on request)

  • Definition of the priorities of the network to solve main problems

  • Pressure and Leakage management plan

  • NIP – Network Investment Plan

Thanks to the redesigned an innovative device for Internet of Things applications, Blue Gold can offer competitive monitoring services in water distribution networks.

Service, which usually is long term with 3 years monthly fee contracts, is quoted for point of measure, and includes:

  • Instrument (if not purchased) 
  • Connection kit
  • Measure (web service or physical server on site)

Blue Gold's platform, including instruments and measures, is naturally concepted to be connected with customer's existing systems

Making Internet of Things

According to the definition of Internet of Things, Blue Gold's cloud platform connect and integrate different devices installed in water networks: from innovative datalogger that acquire pressures and customer's consumptions, to the controllers installed in pump stations or PRVs (Pressure Reducing Valves).

Targetting energy efficiency goals, Blue Gold redesigned an innovative Made in Italy device for massive installations. Main characterichs are small dimension, low power, plug&play (quick to install and low cost of installation), high customization for frequency of data acquisition and transmission, IoT protocols (GSM/GPRS withcustomized modems for different countries, Narrowband IoT, LoraWan, Sigfox)

Blue Gold's offering model for devices is for both purchase and fleet management

Energy optimization services

Service is quoted for km of network monitored and includes:

  • Hydraulic modeling on EPANET and calibration
  • Devices with connection kit (if not purchased)
  • Network monitoring and measure (web service or physical server on site)
  • Pre location of Leakage area
  • Energy management of the network
  • Economic impacts of savings

Standard quotation is for long term periods (3 years) with a monthly fee contract
