Water Logging – Manage Consumption… Identify Leaks… Reduce Costs
A major Australian amusement park engaged Metering Dynamics to assist in the management of their water consumption. Although they had high usage levels they were not able to effectively manage this usage as they could not measure it beyond the main incoming water meter.
Metering Dynamics provided a proprietary logging solution which unlocked access to their consumption data and also led to the discovery of a major leak. This leak was obscured as the water had been soaking into the soft earth surrounding the leak. This realisation led to the amusement park making further investments into their metering programme to ensure the effective management of their water consumption into the future.
Today they have the ability to understand water consumption across their facility, right down to utility and recycled water use.
How can you benefit from a Metering Dynamics logging solution?
• Discover water loss promptly (e.g. leaks, excess splash, overflow)
• Benchmarking to an industry standard or across multiple sites to identify savings and irregularities
• Identify where alternative water sources may be beneficial (e.g. rainwater, greywater)
• Offset annual price increases
Comply with BCA Regulations Section J with Sub-metering:
The primary objective of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) regulations Section J is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It mandates that a Class 2 to 9 building (commercial), including its services, has features that facilitate efficient use of energy. A BCA Section J report is typically required by local councils and building authorities when applying for a construction certificate, building permit or development application. It’s also necessary when ownership of the building changes.
Metering Dynamics sub-metering solution allows a building owner or a manager to comply with regulations and compliance programs viz. NABERS, EEO, BCA Section J, etc. The data provided by the installed sub-metering focuses accountability of energy use on individual users/groups/departments occupying the building. It further assists them in making decisions regarding replacement or upgrade of process/equipment to realise energy efficiency, reducing the cost of utility consumption.
Metering Dynamics works very closely with our customers to ensure metering assets are installed, commissioned and validated. Once measurement points are established, the data obtained is read daily, validated, data warehoused and delivered direct or through your choice of Metering Dynamics Information portal.
