A Digital Clone of a supply network is generated and new AI solutions to detect leaks are undertaken in the Hydroleaks2.0 project

Next August will be the end of the execution period of the HYDROLEAKS2.0 project which, as the second part of the HYDROLEAKS project, has aimed to advance in the parameterisation of detailed hydraulic models and the use of artificial intelligence tools in order to create a digital clone of the water distribution networks that will optimise their operation and enable the detection of leaks in pipes.

As a final closing event, the “Water Digitalisation Day” was held in the city of Bilbao on 15th July, organised together with the Aclima cluster, Basque Environment Cluster with the support of the Bilbao Bizkaia Water Consortium. The goal of the participation of the partners in the event was to present the results of HYDROLEAKS2.0 in front of water consortia, operators, administration and other agents of the water sector in the Basque Country. On CWP’s behalf, Sergi Compte, Project Manager, attended the event. The presentation of HYDROLEAKS2.0 technologies and solutions was given by Josep Lluís Sala from B’GEO, Francesc Batlle from Neurite and Angel Freixó from Createch 360º. On the other hand, Adrià Salvans from Aigües de Vic and Sergi Grau from Aigües de Manresa participated in the round tables.

According to the objectives set, the project has generated a Digital Clone of a supply network and undertaken new AI solutions to detect leaks. The results are managed through a digital platform, which represents an important operational and economic improvement for companies operating in the water cycle, and a reduction of the environmental impact. In the current phase, the project focuses on a solution oriented towards preventive maintenance, new algorithms for the operational management of water networks and sources or the economic forecasting of investments, based again on AI solutions.

The Hydroleaks 2.0 project, which has received funding from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism through the call for AEIs (file number AEI-010500-2021b-152 and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, is scheduled to end in August.
