Technology Drives Infrastructure Operations

One new construction project shows how technology can be used to manage and monitor infrastructure. The city of Hamamatsu is located between Tokyo and Osaka, and has a population of roughly 810,000 people. It is known as an industrial city—and now it has partnered with an organization that will help manage both maintenance and operations of its wastewater and sewage system.

Veolia will leverage its best practices to operate and maintain the wastewater treatment plant and related facilities. More specifically, it will take a risk-analysis related approach to asset management, which will optimize the overall operations and maintenance scheme, as well as the costs.

This is done through the integration of IT systems, which will improve monitoring and remote management and will enable the city to improve the quality and efficiency of services.

Hamamatsu’s wastewater treatment plant is designed to treat up to 200,000 cubic meters per day, which is the equivalent of more than 50 Olympic pools every day—and this is simply only one example. This company also offers energy-management services such as biomass power plants and industrial energy services.

This is an example of how a company with tailored solutions can also help provide the services to better manage the construction and operation of infrastructure. Advanced technology is essential to ensuring quality services and lower operational costs, and this is seen in the water and wastewater sector.
