Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, today announced that Advanced Engineering and Environmental Services, Inc. (AE2S), a specialized civil/environmental consulting engineering firm serving the Upper Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions, has acquired AquaTwin Asset. The software will support AE2S’s asset management professionals in leading the digital transformation for municipal clients seeking greater efficiency, sustainability, resiliency, and bottom-line performance while optimizing their asset lifecycle and realizing the future they envision.
AquaTwin Asset is fundamentally changing the way water and wastewater utilities and engineering firms use technology to plan, design and build safe, efficient, reliable, sustainable, resilient and smarter water infrastructure. This groundbreaking asset management software provides a full and seamless integration of powerful digital technologies including industry-leading ArcGIS Pro® (e.g., asset visualization, management and maintenance); AI/ML (e.g., leak/defect detection and localization, virtual condition assessment, root cause analysis, demand forecasting); criticality analysis; network simulation (e.g., fire flow and water quality calculation); predictive analytics (e.g., asset failure and remaining useful life prediction); and remote sensing (e.g., SCADA and sensors data). This unique combination of unmatched capabilities and decision intelligence ushers in a new era of water infrastructure management, accelerating digital transformation of traditional wet infrastructure management into intelligent simulation-driven management.
Built exclusively on ArcGIS Pro®, AquaTwin Asset lets utilities automate inspection work, measure asset performance, evaluate infrastructure capacity shortfalls under population growth and climate variability, pinpoint assets at highest risk considering both likelihood and consequence of failure, identify root causes and patterns, and prioritize repair and replacement activities. It also enables them to prolong operational lifespan and value of aging assets, predict future asset performance, optimize capital planning, and secure business continuity resilience. Users are able to maintain desired levels of service at the lowest life cycle costs with acceptable levels of risk through sustainable infrastructure strategies and investments, making it possible to achieve the operational efficiencies and the future they envision while bettering their communities.
“Without proper long-term planning, water utilities run the risk of not being able to pay for capital costs when they need to, leading to deteriorating service and, ultimately, public health risks, “said Paul F. Boulos, Chairman and CEO of Aquanuity. “With over two decades of municipal and rural water solutions, AE2S clearly understands the importance of a strategy-led risk-based capital planning and asset management approach to help them deliver optimal water infrastructure capital investment programs for its customers and prioritize master planned projects where they are needed the most. We welcome AE2S as a valued customer and are looking forward to working with its asset management professionals to help build better, smarter, safer, more sustainable and resilient water infrastructures. It’s a source of pride when top water engineering firms recognize the unmatched value and benefits we can help them deliver.”
