Tantnagar is a rural section of eastern India’s Jharkhand, consisting of 76 villages. Most of the water comes from individual handpumps around the area. To improve quality of life in the region, Shriram EPC was tasked with providing 100% piped water supply coverage using a sustainable water source. Their design needed to be efficient and account for both construction costs and operational energy expenditures. They also had to consider the variations on water demand for agricultural purposes.
After finding that other software did not meet their integration needs, Shriram EPC chose OpenFlows WaterGEMS as their water supply system design software. They integrated all major attributes for data analysis, including topographical detail, and saw improved compatibility of their data when importing and exporting. By having all the data in a single location, the team could easily optimize design and streamline the approval process. With OpenFlows WaterGEMS, they saved 20% of the project’s time and cost.
