We use the most innovative and effective leak detection technologies currently available to achieve KPIs that we share with our customers.
2f Water Venture srl is part of the IWS – Integrated Watercare Solutions business network together with our partners BM Tecnologie Industriali srl and Idrostudi srl. The IWS Group, consisting of companies that all share the water market as their core business, offers Integrated Water Service to water utilities.
2f deals with leak detection in water systems using satellite imagery, provided by ASTERRA by Utilis Technology, thanks to an exclusive agreement for the Italian market.
The company is interested in innovation in the Integrated Water Service sector and will consider acquisitions of/shareholdings in startups and other companies that create innovative technologies for the water service market.
We use satellite images provided by ASTERRA by Utilis Technology, thanks to an exclusive agreement for the Italian market, both to pre-locate leaks in the network under test (Recover), and to detect any degradation of the pipeline condition, supporting water utilities in their assessment as to whether to replace any pipes (Masterplan).
In conjunction with ASTERRA technology we use the technology patented by FIDO, a British start-up which, using artificial intelligence, has developed an algorithm that identifies water leaks with 92% accuracy, also assessing the size of the leak by comparing noise levels measured by the installed sensors, relaying on a database of 1.4 million sounds.
For its in-field leak location activity, 2f Water Venture employs 10 teams of leak detection technicians: 5 teams include technicians employed by the company while the other 5 teams are partners based throughout the national territory, selected on the basis of their shared operational standards certified by 2f Water Venture operational management. All the teams are specifically trained to locate water leaks using the latest, most innovative technologies available on the market.
