Business Forum Room 1 The world’s first wastewater pumping system with integrated intelligence; Flygt Concertor
Presented by: Stefan Abelin

Customers are asking for more, better, faster and for less cost in wastewater pumping. These challenges can be met by integrating sophisticated power electronics and intelligent software in submersible pumping systems. The result is unprecedented operational flexibility, cutting-edge efficiency, increased reliability, improved asset management and reductions in OpEx and CapEx. Customer pain points, such as system reliability, energy consumption, operational flexibility, footprint, connectivity and lower lifecycle cost can be achieved with integrated intelligence, the ultimate solution for maximum peace of mind.

 Protecting Perth’s precious water resources
Presented by: Jerome Douziech Perth is well known for its long and dry summers but in recent years the West Australian capital has recorded some of lowest rainfall spells on record. In the past summer for the first time ever, more water evaporated from the cities dams compared to what flowed in from the rains. Responding to this challenge is the Water Corporation of Western Australia with a long term strategy to become climate resilient. Aroona Alliance, a partnership between Water Corporation, SUEZ and Broadspectrum, is in charge of operating and maintaining the metropolitan water and wastewater assets in this challenging environment. Aroona delivers high quality water and wastewater services to residents of the Perth and Mandurah area.

 Advanced Solutions for Sewer and Stormwater management
Presented by: Simon Bunn, Paul Banfield

Sewage systems can be very sensitive to rainfall that can cause overflows into the environment. Under some circumstances, introduction of slight physical adjustments and improved control rules of sewage systems can reduce the risk of harm. In this context, SUEZ Group designed AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage, an innovative software suite dedicated to sewer and stormwater system performance and optimisation.

Presented by: Dr. Ian Ramsay, Chris Mooney

Substantial investment in sewage treatment has occurred recently, in Australia. Traditional engineering solutions involve substantial capital and operating costs, energy and chemical usage and related CO2 emissions. Despite this, water quality levels produced are often not sufficient to achieve water quality standards for waterways which are under pressure from diffuse pollution. The loads released will increase with population, resulting in further pressure on the environment.

Business Forum Room 1 Foundations for water security in Australia: the essential role of innovative science and water information
Presented by: Warwick McDonald, Graham Hawke

The Millennium Drought (1997–2009) decimated production in Australia’s most important agricultural regions, and significantly impacted the ecological health of Australian rivers, particularly in the Murray–Darling Basin. This forum provides an opportunity to engage in a discussion around the innovative science and product development behind state-of-the-art water information services.

 Advanced Solutions for Drinking Water Systems and Networks
Presented by: Simon Bunn, Paul Banfield

A key issue for the requirement of control of the water supply service is the optimization of the performance of the distribution systems and networks. Their efficiency requires a better knowledge of their functioning at any time while more and more devices are deployed to allow collection of real-time measurements (sensors, AMR...). Every day these devices deliver an increasing quantity of data that needs to be processed and transformed into valuable information to help with monitoring and controlling the water supply.

In the meantime, water utilities face increasing energy supply costs over the long-term while market development tends to value flexibility as regards electricity consumption. As drinking water processes are energy- dependent, new technologies based on real time control and systems modelling offer new capabilities to ensure water is delivered where it is needed at minimum cost and maximum quality.

In response to these demands in performance in water networks, SUEZ group has designed the AQUADVANCED® Water Networks and AQUADVANCED® Energy advanced solutions.

 Innovative approaches to reducing agricultural runoff to the Great Barrier Reef – using treatment systems in coastal catchments
Presented by: Mike Ronan, Claire Andersen

The waterways of Queensland, are important environmentally, socially and economically. The Queensland and Australian Governments and stakeholders are implementing the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan. As part of this, stakeholders are also working jointly to implement the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan to ensure runoff from reef catchments has no detrimental impact on the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef. In South East Queensland, the Resilient Rivers Initiative involves stakeholders to develop catchment Action Plans.

 Decentralized water and wastewater solutions & new technologies (UCD, desalination & MBR): operator’s return of experience
Presented by: Marc Mocellin, Fabrice Polizzi

Multiple decentralised plants is a valuable alternative to large plants on cities or territories with multiple watersheds such as Nouméa. In the same way, decentralised water treatment plants are more and more used in Pacific Islands for local supply of suburban or isolated populations. The session will give a feedback from the point of view of an operator on the use of advanced technologies (compact units, membranes, desalination) . Key success factors for implementation of decentralised water and wastewater units will be discussed.

 Taking action to protect the oceans : solutions from the earth to the sea
Presented by: Diane d’Arras

A vital resource, oceans pay the price for human activities through global warning and pollution. Gathered onland by streams and sanitation networks overloaded with rainwater, plastic wastes are invading the oceans. Solutions exist to take action at every step in the water and waste cycles.

Presented by: Dr. Rajah Vijay Kumar
BR> AQUATRON™ is a proprietary technology based on FP-STAR (Fine-Particle- Shortwave- Thrombolytic-Agglomeration-Reaction). It is a patented disruptive innovation based on the premise of blood clotting, to treat wastewater. FP-STAR technology and patent belong to Dr. Rajah Vijay Kumar, Organisation De Scalene.

Our methodology is inspired by nature and uses physics to solve this problem, instead of chemistry being used conventionally. Commercially these solutions have been successfully deployed in India and Europe.

 Planning for resilience – developing an adaptive drought response plan for South East Queensland
Presented by: Dimity Lynas, Principal Demand Planner, Water Supply Strategy and Policy, Seqwater

South East Queensland is subject to weather extremes due to local climatic conditions. The recent Millennium Drought and major flood events highlighted the need for robust resilient planning. Seqwater is the SEQ bulk water supply authority responsible water security planning. A resilient water supply requires catchment to tap planning, much of which is outside of Seqwater’s control. This presentation outlines how Seqwater worked with the water service providers to develop an adaptive drought response plan balancing water security and cost; and considering supply, demand and operational options.

UNITYWATER Intelligent Water Networks
Unitywater has developed a variety of technologies that deliver an intelligent potable water network. Each component of water measurement and monitoring is valuable in its own right, however, the sum total of all these parts provides considerable additional value now and for the future.

 River Basin Management – the Queensland approach
Presented by: Leanne Barbeler, Jon Ritchie, Aaron Stasi, Sam Bonaventura

This forum will explore the Queensland Government’s world leading river basin management approach. Over the past 15 years we have established a catchment- based (river basin) process to water planning in consultation with water users and the broader community. Today, 95% of Queensland’s major catchments have Water plans, many of which have been in place for a decade.
