INNOVATION – TOO BIG TO IGNORE

Proactive water-loss management

Climate change, rapid urbanization, and limited water resources are putting pressure on utility companies to use their resources in a sustainable and efficient manner. Likewise, it is a well-known fact that pipeline integrity and energy efficiency are two fundamental aspects of proactive water-loss management and financially sustainable urban water services. Ask an water engineer or manager and they will agree.

A tangible future

Deriving from exceptional know-how in the control valve industry LocPower energy harvesting control valve is designed to provide utility companies with smart solution for their Watergy strategies. With its unparalleled response time and precision in the regulation of smallest pressure variations together with integrated turbine and internal bypass channel, LocPower is a tangible future of smart utility companies.

3 in 1 product

Compared to traditional water energy recovery systems LocPower® is best described as 3 in 1 product. Instead of Pressure Reducing Valve and Bypass and Sensor Valves that controls flow to the turbine, now you have all this products in the LocPower® valve with integrated trim-turbine. Put simply, two types of valves and a turbine are united into one product.

Axial flow & easy installation

This also implies that no intervention needs to be done on the layout of your pipeline. LocPower internal bypass channel ensures axial flow and easy installation. What’s best, no additional construction work needs to be done for the installation of bypass pipes, which simplifies permitting requirements, saves environment from GHG emissions, and significantly reduce the installation costs.

Innovation showcase

With LocPower hitting the market in November 2016 on the Bologna International Water Exhibition “ACCADUEO”, where LocPower was selected as innovation showcase product, all European utilities are able to decrease their non-revenue water by real-time control of pipeline operating pressure, and to increase green electricity output by harvesting the energy that would otherwise be dissipated.

The greenest KWh

Therefore, knowing that the greenest KWh is the one that is never produced, but the second greenest is the one we save from dissipation, smart and innovative utilities from all over the world needs to embrace LocPower technology because the efficiency and sustainability gains are too big to ignore.
