April 2017 spells the introduction of competitive retail for water and waste water services to all of England’s non-household customers.
Understanding water usage is becoming more important, not only the logging of water consumption on entry to a commercial premises, but also an opportunity to look at how different parts of the site consume, potentially make efficiencies and detect leakage.
Z-Tech have been installing and commissioning data logging technology equipment for a number of years, particularly for our Water Industry customers. With the competitive retail challenge, smart metering and the opportunity to link into Building Maintenance Systems (BMS) under our one-stop-solution, this is an area Z-Tech will be expecting to expand over the coming months.
Barry Jones, Morrison Utilities said:
“By utilising geographic grouping of sites, Z-Tech are able to commission loggers following installation & fitment of ancillary devices; they then establish comms with their top-end systems engineers (both phone and telemetry contact) in a one-stop-solution. This minimises the need for revisit (therefore reducing transport costs, reducing carbon footprint and allowing us to maximise outputs) and further ensures smooth data transfer between interfaces - so the end user can review data quickly which, in some cases, results in prompt identification of leakage and subsequent repair.”
