What would 'going Dutch' mean for the UK water industry?
The UK and the Netherlands (NL) are two European countries with extensive water and wastewater assets and utilities that overall provide high-level service to customers. However, the two utility models differ in many aspects including ownership, i.e., public (NL) or private (UK), the way the sector is organised, i.e., water and sewer services combined (UK) or separate (NL), or whether chlorine is used for disinfection in the distribution system (UK) or not (NL), to name but a few. This talk will compare and contrast the two models, including the provision of research and innovation services and whether all those differences have resulted in notable performance differentiation between the two water sectors.
The practical aspects of Water 4.0
The Digital Transformation of the Water Industry is a key aspect of future operations. However practically it sounds complicated and cost to implement. In this keynote presentation we will investigate how this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case and look at how the quality data from well-installed and maintained instrumentation can yield insight that drives informed decision making.
