Elevate Water Infrastructure Management with AquaTwin Asset V1.5 for ArcGIS Pro 3.0

Key Highlights:

  • Support for ArcGIS Pro 3.0
  • 70 new user-requested features and functionality enhancing criticality analysis, condition assessment, risk calculation, R&R planning, project management, and selection manager.

Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, today introduced AquaTwin Asset GenerationV1.5 for ArcGIS Pro 3.0.

AquaTwin Asset is the world’s first (and only) AI-powered, simulation-driven, self-service water, wastewater and stormwater condition assessment and risk-based capital planning software for Esri® ArcGIS Pro®. It lets water and wastewater utilities effectively balance asset risk-cost-performance and address short-term infrastructure challenges through effective R&R spending while extending the lifespan of critical aging assets under frequently changing conditions and building resilient and sustainable infrastructure for the future. With AquaTwin Asset‘s advanced analytical capabilities, users are able to quantify risks and deterioration patterns and determine the impact of various R&R strategies. They can also create a digital twin directly from the hydraulic model for risk analysis, work directly inside existing cloud and enterprise ArcGIS Online/Portal environment, automatically determine and code defects from CCTV, and have the option to leverage AI models to predict future pipe failures in the system.

A short list of AquaTwin Asset V1.5 key features and functionality is shown below.

Key Features and Functionality

  • User-Environment
    • 64 bit ArcGIS Pro 3.0 extension application.
    • Work directly inside your existing Cloud and enterprise environment such as ArcGIS Online/Portal and share work and content across your organization.
    • No Importing/Exporting of GIS: GIS-centric software. Connect directly to your Enterprise GIS (or Local, if preferred).
    • Ability to dynamically link to dashboards such as ArcGIS Insights, including displaying and analyzing of multiple R& scenarios.
    • All ArcGIS Pro Symbology and Mapping available (including 3D “Scenes”).
    • Full support of ArcGIS Pro Pipeline Referencing and Utility Network.
  • Twin Builder
    • Create digital twin directly from an EPANET file.
    • Fully embedded EPANET engine for use in AI failure prediction, Likelihood of Failure (e.g., above average velocity), Consequence of Failure (high flows, high chlorine near rivers), System Safety (e.g., fire flow availability), and Criticality Analysis/Break Consequence (including water quality such as locations with low levels of chlorine residuals and/or high chlorine near rivers).
    • Create digital twin directly from GIS.
  • Criticality Analysis
    • Determine impact of asset failure on your network hydraulic and water quality performance.
  • AI Capabilities
    • Use AI models to predict future failures, calculate Root Cause Analysis, and Risk costs for Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA). As well as demand forecasting, anomaly detection, and time-series pattern prediction.
    • AI results accessible to LoF, CoF, and R&R planning.
  • Risk Calculation
    • Calculate risk scores with a weighted additive or a multiplication approach.
    • Scale Risk scores.
    • Use a risk matrix (3×3, 4×4 or 5×5) or a risk scaling approach to group pipes into risk levels.
    • Risk Rating option to define multiplication or addition, weights to LoF or CoF, and exact percentile OR scores for Risk Group section breakers.
  • Condition Assessment
    • Stream CCTV media (photos and videos) from the cloud and free-up valuable space on your local drive.
    • Compare AI-annotated media with original files for in-depth QA/QC of your inspection data.
    • Import non-PACP standard (any format) survey data from different data sources.
    • Import, validate, and begin R&R planning with NASSCO-compliant defect codes tables and actionable analysis.
    • Instantly create detailed heatmaps highlighting inspected lines with critical defects. Push these maps to the cloud with ArcGIS Online and share across your organization.
  • R&R Planning
    • Directly leverage hydraulic results, any attribute as well as risk and AI results.
    • Use detailed Queries for highly specific planning.
    • Prepare short term (5 years) and long term (10, 20 or 30 years) capital planning.
  • Project Management
    • Group projects based on any pipe attributes, any number of links traced outward, any distance, and/or on any selection of pipes.
  • Selection Manager
    • Use ArcGIS Pro Selection tools (e.g., “Select by Attribute,” and “Select by location,”) to create simple or complex multi-variable, logic-based, selections for any LoF, CoF, and/or R&R query.

“Preserving the physical integrity and resiliency of water distribution and sewer collection network assets helps ensure they remain available and reliable longer as well as reduce their operating and maintenance expenditures,” said Paul Boulos, Chairman and CEO of Aquanuity. ” AquaTwin Asset is a must-have for meeting this vital goal. It lets utilities optimize and prioritize repair and replacement activities; prolong operational lifespan, value and reliability of aging assets and performance at maximum costs savings; predict future asset performance; and secure business continuity resilience. We are proud to introduce this all-in-one water infrastructure resilience solution that makes it better, faster, easier for utilities to operate, manage and sustain high-performing, highly efficient water infrastructure systems — imperative in today’s economy — meet the needs of their customers and better their communities.”
