Though six towns in the Indian state of Rajasthan had some water service, significant gaps in the systems left many residents without consistent supply. Larsen & Toubro needed to design a new sewage network, water distribution network, two treatment plants, and other structures in only 36 months. They needed a digital solution to deliver on time, as well as help them to determine a suitable sewer depth while considering the topography and road widths.
Larsen & Toubro determined that OpenFlows WaterGEMS and OpenFlows SewerGEMS could help them design the new system and streamline workflows. While modeling the new sewer system, they determined that they could place 80% of it four meters below ground instead of the estimated 6 meters needed, which reduced excavation. Then, they simulated water flow for all 703 kilometers of the network, ensuring the network’s safety and reliability. Compared to traditional design methodology, they cut the design time needed by 60%.
