Challenges facing companies in the Water sector
Developing long-term sustainable strategies to ensure the uninterrupted supply of safe, clean drinking water are major focus areas for Water companies globally. How companies deliver these vital services has a major impact on society, the economy and the environment now and into the future.
The environmental, regulatory and financial challenges within the water industry are key drivers for innovation and performance improvement. Water companies are continually looking for innovative solutions to better manage complex business environments. Predicting and managing the impact of risk and uncertainty across an integrated network of assets is one of the key challenges faced and one that modelling and prescriptive analytics is well placed to address.
Water companies face a diverse range of strategic challenges such as the effects of climate change, the impact of ever more stringent water quality standards and the need for increased levels of investment to expand capacity and maintain a geographically dispersed asset network. Balancing the needs of customers, the environment, regulators, the asset base and shareholders in both the short and long term is a fundamental challenge for the sector.
For over a decade BMA have worked with clients in the UK, Australia and South Africa to develop Digital Twins of their complex asset systems and business processes. These virtual representations of the physical world have been used in a variety of ways to answer some of the very difficult questions that the majority of first world water companies now face.
We are now fully leveraging our breadth and depth of water sector knowledge and experience, through a standard suite of Digital Twins which can be rapidly adapted and applied to any water company. Delivering our ethos of building rapid client value, the range of solutions now offered through the Water Resilience Solution Suite is guaranteed to help you run your business better.
