April 4, 2017

Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced that Manx Utilities in the Isle of Man, has selected InfoWorks WS Pro to replace its existing network modeling solution and assist in managing its drinking water infrastructure.

Manx Utilities is a £100m turnover business, responsible for providing its customers with safe, reliable, efficient and economic supplies of electricity, natural gas and clean water; as well as processing waste water, and delivering flood risk management services for the Isle of Man. The water infrastructure serves an Island population of approximately 88,000 across an area of 572 square kilometers which includes five impounding reservoirs, two water treatment works, 20 pumping stations, 29 service reservoirs and 1,734 kilometers of water mains.

“We chose the InfoWorks WS Pro solution for its ability to model and analyze our large and complex water network with incredible speed and efficiency,” said Carl Roberts, Project Manager for Manx Utilities. “In addition, the software’s powerful and comprehensive simulation, visualization and database management capabilities are a better fit for our needs, and dramatically reduce the time and effort required to investigate and solve complex modeling questions associated with water network operations and management.”

Armed with 64-bit performance, InfoWater WS Pro combines sophisticated network modeling, predictive analytics, systems dynamics, business planning and optimization functionality, enabling utilities to make informed planning, design and management decisions with confidence. The software comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their water transmission and distribution systems, giving them an accurate view of their performance, from fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to leakage and DMA management.

“The Innovyze family of smart network modeling and management solutions continues to be the standard for the world’s largest and most prominent water and wastewater utilities,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, Chief Executive Officer of Innovyze. “The selection by Manx Utilities confirms that progressive enterprises which invest in Innovyze technology gain a technological advantage that leads to measurable improvements in productivity, system performance, and customer satisfaction at maximum cost savings. Our superior high-performance software will help Manx Utilities engineers create and manage sustainable and resilient water infrastructure, even under the most challenging conditions.”
