NWG services 4.5 million people in the North East of England, and in the South East as Essex & Suffolk Water.
NWG is undergoing a rollout of smart meters, which report data back to the cloud on an hourly basis. The Siemens Software as a Service (SaaS) solution will allow it to analyse this data to identify household consumption anomalies and alert customers of potential leaks on their properties.
Siemens collaborated with NWG’s team to design, develop, test and launch the meter data management SaaS, which is powered by the technology company’s EnergyIP software.
EnergyIP MDM X for Water is part of Siemens Xcelerator, the company’s digital business platform.
Sabine Erlinghagen, CEO of grid software at Siemens Smart Infrastructure, said: “EnergyIP MDM X will enable NWG to make the best use of their data to reduce leakage and water consumption across their network. We’re supporting the water industry by providing purposeful software technology for greater customer impact and sustainability.”
Gary Adams, head of smart transformation at NWG, said: “The EnergyIP MDM implementation is a critical cornerstone in our smart metering journey, allowing us to effectively manage the large volumes of metering data we will receive and to drive efficient operational activity for both our customers and our wider business providing access to granular smart data at the click of a button. Being able to rely on Siemens expertise in this area gives us confidence that we can achieve our smart metering ambitions now and, in the future.”
