Tackling leak detection with Anglian Water


Clancy is harnessing technological innovation to tackle leakage as part of a new contract with Anglian Water.

The business’ first leakage detection contract covers the western area of Anglian Water’s network and sees Clancy working alongside fellow IMR alliance contractor Kier, covering the eastern region.

New methods for enhancing network resilience include greater deployment of noise logging devices across the network to identify anomalies in water flow.

Clancy has also been working in partnership with Microsoft to look at how machine learning tools can be combined with its expertise in the field to pre-empt likely leakage points across the network.

Jim Davey – Operations Director at Clancy said: “We are excited to demonstrate our expanding capabilities as we rise to the critical challenge of network resilience. Driving greater innovation will be key to tackling leakage and unlocking improved quality, consistency of supply and affordability.”
