Aquafin is responsible for the transport and treatment of household wastewater in Flanders (Belgium). In fulfilling this, Aquafin manages 2,500 pumping stations and 318 water treatment plants. In June 2020 the Belgian Maintenance Association (BEMAS) organized a Hackathon, an online technical contest, for a challenge presented by Aquafin. By combining UReason’s Asset Performance Management (APM) software and MaxGrip’s consultancy expertise, we demonstrated how Aquafin could benefit from implementing a predictive and proactive approach to their asset management.

Case study – highlights

Approach

Aquafin wants to predict pump failure based on their available data to be able to carry out smarter maintenance. If urgent maintenance can be planned better during normal working hours, operations will become more efficient and the teams will have a better work/life balance as a result.

Data & systems: APM software for predictive maintenance and use of probabilistic BowTie model to predict failure 3,5 hrs before it happens.

Organization: Aquafin in the driver’s seat with a changed way of working. Operations ‘in control’ – act before it breaks down; 24/7 standby is no longer necessary.

Results

  • Over 50% reduction of night and weekend intervention cost
  • Improved work/life balance
  • Reduction of unavoidable discharges
  • ROI in six to eight months
