INNOVATION – ARE YOU READY TO LEAD?

Proactive water-loss management & green

electricity

Climate change, rapid urbanization, and limited water resources are putting pressure on utility companies to use their resources in a sustainable and efficient manner. At the same time, 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 any water engineer or manager and they will agree.

Real-time control & predictive diagnostics

Derived from the symbiosis between innovation-driven practice and practice-driven innovation in the control valve industry, the LocPower energy harvesting control valve is designed to provide utility companies with a smart solution for their Watergy strategies. With its unparalleled response time and precision in regulating smallest pressure variations together with Integrated Turbine, Internal Extra Flow Channel, and advanced predictive and preventive maintenance systems LocPower is a tangible future for 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 using a Pressure Reducing Valve a Bypass and Sensor Valves that control the flow to the turbine, now all you need is a LocPower® valve with Integrated Trim-Turbine and Internal Extra Flow Channel. Put simply, two types of valves and a turbine are combined into one product.

Maximum pipeline security

This also implies that no intervention is needed on the layout of your pipeline. LocPower’s Internal Extra Flow Channel ensures axial flow and easy installation. Even better, no additional construction work needs to be done for the installation of bypass pipes, which simplifies permitting requirements, saves the environment from GHG emissions, and significantly reduce installation costs.

Innovation showcase

With LocPower hitting the market in November 2016 at the Bologna International Water Exhibition “ACCADUEO”, where LocPower was selected as an innovation showcase product, all European utilities are able to decrease their non-revenue water by exercising real-time control of the 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 will certainly see the advantage in embracing embracing LocPower technology because the efficiency and sustainability gains are too big to ignore.
