Cost-efficient online monitoring

Every year, large investments are made in maintenance, replacement, and expansion of the water infrastructure and with the challenges of heavier rainfall, it is necessary to ensure effective decision making in this area. Therefore, a unified solution enabling cost-efficient distributed monitoring of the hydrological and hydraulic states of the entire urban water cycle has been developed.

More than 200 monitoring sensors has been installed in Aarhus, where they monitor the pressure in groundwater abstraction and distribution, water levels at stormwater management solutions and in sewer systems. Using these sensors, the total cost of ownership can be lowered with up to 90 percent.

Water resources worldwide are under strain

New solutions needs to be tested and implemented to ensure that the next generation has better access to water. Now, we wash our clothes and flush our toilets with clean drinking water. However, using rainwater instead could cut drinking water consumption with up to 40 percent. This is the focus of the suburb Nye, where gathered rainwater will be used for toilet flushing and laundry.

State of the art water production

In Aarhus, we focus on development of the water management in order to secure maximum drinking water safety combined with minimal operational costs. At Aarhus Vand, we have implemented new and improved technology at Truelsbjergvaerket and Bedervaerket, where the focus is on innovation and flexible facilities. Bedervaerket is the newest addition and the technology here has been further improved from the renovation of Truelsbjergværket and lives up to the highest demands of drinking water safety.

There is zero contact between the building constructions and our drinking water, which eliminates all risks of infiltration of surface water and the treatment of the water is under permanent pressure, eliminating impact from the surrounding environment.
