8power, Cambridge based CBM technology leader announces it will more than double the number of Anglian Water assets being monitored to over 150 critical pumps. By extending an existing agreement, the 8power technology will be delivered through a multi-year framework agreement.
8power’s high-performance system of long-life sensors, robust 4G communications and cloud-based Quanta platform provide regular asset condition data and insights. The data is used to generate alerts to detect issues, diagnose problems and recommend remedial actions to prevent failure of critical national infrastructure. Anglian Water and 8power have been working together for over five years to shape a solution that is tailored to the specific needs of UK water.
Glen Clark CEO, 8power said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Anglian Water to provide monitoring of complex, expensive assets in real time. Using proprietary Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Leading (ML) algorithms with 3-axis vibration and temperature measurements the 8power CBM system is able to provide a clear diagnostic picture of asset health every hour with sensors that last for ten years. 8power have taken the opportunity to expand the audience for CBM by providing simple dashboards that clearly show if there are any issues, allowing non-experts to quickly see what is happening in their asset fleet”.
Charlotte Stewart of Anglian Water said, “Using 8power’s CBM system has enabled our business to better understand the condition of assets, track developing issues and prioritise both maintenance resources and capital planning. This helps us manage operational risk across the network to reduce interruption to supply, minimise environmental impact of asset failure and save money”.
