SWAN - The Smart Water Networks Forum. This forum is a worldwide industry forum promoting the use of data technologies in water networks, making them smarter, more efficient and more sustainable. SWAN brings industry leaders together to create and accelerate awareness and effective use of smart data systems for water networks.
The Smart Water Network is the collection of data-driven components helping to operate the data-less physical layer of pipes, pumps, reservoirs and valves.
Water utilities are gradually deploying more data-enabled components. It's up to us to make the most out of them, by turning the discrete elements into a cohesive 'overlay network'. Collecting and using comprehensive data about water network operations offers the perspective of better operations through better knowledge and tighter control of the network’s extensive and complex assets.
- KISTERS solutions help water utilities to improve their operational capabilities by applying (big) data analytic strategies to turn data into actionable intelligence and by improving operational efficiency through optimized water system operating procedures, including pumping schedules, storage and energy contracts, to save energy costs.
