AKM Consulting Engineers, Inc. Boosts its Water Infrastructure Digital Twin Capabilities with AquaTwin Asset and AquaTwin Water

Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, today announced that AKM Consulting Engineers, Inc. (www.akmce.com) headquartered in Irvine CA has acquired AquaTwin Asset and AquaTwin Water The software will support AKM’s GIS and engineering professionals in leading the digital transformation for public agencies greater efficiency, sustainability, resiliency, and bottom-line performance while optimizing their water infrastructure performance and capital improvements projects.

Built exclusively on ArcGIS Pro®, 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 (e.g., resilience); network simulation (e.g., fire flow and water quality calculation); predictive analytics (e.g., asset failure 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.

A comprehensive 64-bit feature-packed modeling and analysis ArcGIS Pro® extension, AquaTwin Water is the next-generation AI-powered digital twin software for safe, reliable, sustainable and resilient water infrastructure. The software can effectively be used by both water utilities and their engineering consultants in all phases of the water infrastructure asset lifecycle. Design and size new water infrastructure, retrofit existing aging infrastructure, provide adequate capacity to fight fires, forecast demands, optimize operations of tanks and pumps, reduce energy usage, investigate water quality problems, plan flushing operations, and prepare for emergencies. And armed with very fast and advanced simulation capabilities, users can model contamination threats and evaluate resilience to security threats, climate change or natural disasters.

AquaTwin Water and AquaTwin Asset raise the bar and sets new standards in GIS-centric water infrastructure digital twin innovation,” said Paul F. Boulos, Aquanuity Chairman and CEO. “Through systematic evaluation of condition, risk and hydraulic performance, the software empower utilities and their consultants to develop optimized capital improvement and system maintenance plans that are aligned with long-term service goals and supported by effective operations, maintenance and engineering practices. They combine unprecedented hydraulic and water quality simulation speed and reliability with highest performance geospatial functionality and AI-powered analytics to help users to plan, design, operate and sustain better, safer, more resilient, and more efficient water infrastructure systems. They represent a quantum leap in the art and science of water infrastructure digital twin and let users do more better, smarter, faster … for less, and unlock more value from their water infrastructure. We welcome AKM Consulting Engineers as a valued customer and look forward to working with its engineering team to help power their customers’ success.”
