As part of its commitment to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water is collaborating with Riventa to test the efficiency of 424 wastewater pumps at 132 treatment works.
Riventa’s next-generation pump system optimisation expertise will support Welsh Water in evaluating asset performance and reducing energy consumption, resulting in significant savings.
Over the next two years, Riventa will gather accurate and high-quality data to determine the health and efficiency of all 424 pumps. This data will identify inefficiencies and enable Welsh Water to address poor assets, driving investment and refurbishments to improve performance.
Andrew Heygate-Browne, Energy Projects Analyst at Welsh Water, said:
“As one of the largest energy users in Wales, with a gross energy bill of £77 million in 2021/22, we recognize the need to reduce our energy consumption and play a significant role in Welsh Government’s decarbonisation targets for Wales.”
“Working with Riventa to ensure our pumps operate as efficiently as possible is one of several critical steps we’re taking towards Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040.”
