Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, today announced that Brown and Caldwell, ranked #38 as the top design firm in the world by ENR, has acquired AquaTwin Asset. The software will support Brown and Caldwell’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.
“With aging and deteriorating water infrastructure, limited budgets, restricted flexibility in rates, and increasing expectations and regulatory requirements, utilities are on a continual quest for the most appropriate practices to reduce risk while improving financial performance and infrastructure resilience and meet these competing demands,” said Paul F. Boulos, Chairman and CEO of Aquanuity. “Through systematic evaluation of condition, risk and hydraulic performance, AquaTwin Asset lets water utilities and their consultants 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. We welcome Brown and Caldwell 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 nationwide. It’s a source of pride when top water engineering firms recognize the unmatched value and benefits we can help them deliver.”
