Mozyr is one of the oldest cities in Belarus, with a population of 105,700 people. Its water system consists of 27 communal artesian wells, but since the city’s elevation varies by more than 90 meters, it produces water pressure too low in some areas and too high in others. GeoCentreGroup was tasked with normalizing the pressure across the system, but they also had to improve efficiencies, assess capacity, and take future development into account. To succeed, they needed a single software platform that could handle all responsibilities.
GeoCentreGroup chose OpenFlows WaterGEMS to meet all project goals, using the application to undertake hydraulic analysis of the entire network. By performing analysis for three years of data and evaluating various “what-if” scenarios, they accurately assessed the capacity and developed technical solutions for reconstruction and development. Based on their assessments, they targeted construction of new piping and new autonomous control valves to ensure stable pressure and continued supply.
