As part of a program to reduce water loss throughout the company’s water
distribution system in Brazil, Sabesp contracted with the consortium of
Alphaplan and B&B Engenharia to reduce water loss and prepare for
population growth in Vila Formosa District. The BRL 76. 3 million project
included analysis of the water distribution network, and simulation of
future scenarios. The team specified pipeline, valves, and pumps and
prepared the technical package for bidding.
WaterGEMS simulated current and future scenarios with and without
interventions through 2045. The project team identified critical areas
that required intervention to reduce the rate of water loss from 34 to
25 percent. Bentley software’s CAD/GIS integration capability, multiple
scenarios, thematic maps, and project area segmentation boosted
productivity and facilitated decision making.
As land is acquired for the development of Navi Mumbai International
Airport in Maharashtra, India, landowners are being offered developed
parcels on a 224-hectare section adjacent to National Highway 4-B. City
and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) of Maharashtra designed
the INR 120 million water supply network for the area, which is part of
the Pushpak Node.
Selecting the correct pipeline diameter will help to prevent network head
loss under various operating conditions. CIDCO generated scenarios in
Haestad software, which helped the team to plan the network in less time.
By reducing the design time from 180 to 60 days, Bentley applications
significantly helped to reduce project costs. Upon completion in 2019, the
Pushpak Node will be an affordable residential hub in a desirable location
near the airport.
