Portuguese company specialized in diagnostics and search for solutions for the optimization of hydraulic systems such as energy efficiency and optimization, management of water losses, management of rainfall derived infiltration inflows and asset infrastructure management is looking for potential partners interested in spread its services in external markets, establishing a commercial agency agreement. The Portuguese company is interested mainly in the Spanish market, but is open to all markets.
Studies and projects in areas such as water and wastewater is still a growing need, being necessary to invest with added value in new studies through the introduction of new provision services. The Portuguese company was born from a group of more than 30 years of experience in projects for the urban water cycle. Specialized in the consultancy services of optimization of hydraulic systems, working with companies from the water sector (supply and wastewater disposal systems) and industrial companies (with similar systems), the company is composed of civil engineers, working in projects related with public water supply systems and waste water drainage. The main purpose of the Portuguese company is to optimize the hydraulic systems already developed, seeking to address the need for improved levels of sustainability efficiency of integrated services in the cycle efficiency of the urban water cycle, by evaluating the real performance of the systems. The company operates in five main areas of activity: - Energy efficiency and optimization: from the step of the performance assessment (development of electric pump efficiency tests - characterization of the state and assessment of hydraulic pumping system) to the predictive maintenance plans (planning maintenance work), energy optimization solutions (modeling of the pumping system and technical and economic assessment optimization solutions) and development of energy optimization plans. - Management of water losses: from initial assessment (evaluation and characterization of the current situation) to the monitoring (definition of active control strategies), system modeling, and support the control of leakages and losses. - Management of rainfall derived infiltration inflows: initial assessment (evaluation and characterization of the current situation), definition of monitoring and control areas, system modelling and plan control of undue inflows. - Asset infrastructure management: initial assessment (performance characterization of the system), analysis of system vulnerabilities (identification of critical points), economic evaluation of infrastructure (current value assessment and intervention costs) and support for the implementation of the system. - Other optimization services: cavitation analysis, studies related with increased systems capacity, hydraulic systems modeling and training in EPANET (software that models the hydraulic and water quality behavior of water distribution piping systems) and SWMM (storm water management model) systems. The Portuguese company is looking for potential partners that could spread its services in external markets, establishing commercial agreements. The company is also seeking to establish a partnership with other representatives of equipment providers to increase its added value.
Innovations and advantages
The Portuguese company comes from a group of more than 30 years of experience in projects for the urban water cycle, in which has experience in the sector and knowledge of the market. The main advantages of the services provided regarding its main competitors is the real evaluation of systems performance and characteristics, by using specific equipment for monitoring and assessment of hydraulic efficiency (namely for pumping systems). The company does not merely give advice, but also supports the implementation of the best optimization solutions using real monitoring data and calibrated modeling of the systems.
