Employing the right product saved utility customer Anglian Water thousands in labor and downtime costsBlocked pumps are a huge problem at utility provider Anglian Water, they spend £15 million per year resolving these blockages which can cause customer and environmental impacts as well as commercial costs. Anglian Water's "Keep it Clear" campaign educates the public how to clean out pumps, helping to clean the water for the community. In addition, Anglian Water works with Siemens using SIMOCODE to proactively control and monitor the utility's pump to greatly reduce their downtime and prevent blockages. This innovative deployment of technology has reduced blockages by 70% and has also decreased the number of pollution incidents.
"The true benefit is being able to use a standard product that can be adapted precisely to our requirements."Lorenzo Pompa, engineer at Anglian Water
