Novozymes and Grundfos kick off collaboration for clean water

Biology and pump technology are combined, when the two leading global players enter an open innovation collaboration to find new solutions to the world’s water challenges. When you combine biotech with cutting-edge water technology, you might find new global issues concerning water scarcity. Thereby, you can make a direct impact on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6, aiming at securing universal access to water and sanitation by 2030. This is the scope, when the world’s leading expert in enzymes and microorganisms, Novozymes, and Grundfos, the global leader in advanced pump technologies, enter an open innovation collaboration. The partnership takes place on HelloScience.io, an online universe launched by Novozymes in September 2017 where entrepreneurs, startups and others can connect with industry. “This is a great opportunity. Partnering with Grundfos opens new possibilities for Novozymes, the HelloScience platform and its users. Until now, we have been able to connect the startups and academics, who are part of this network, with our knowledge about enzymes and microorganisms, and allowing them to use samples in their work, but now we can also connect them with Grundfos’ expertise in water treatment,” says Claus Crone Fuglsang, Senior Vice President, Research & Technology at Novozymes. The two companies embark on their innovation voyage today. Four specific challenges will be posted online, allowing all in the HelloScience community to pitch their ideas on how to secure clean water for more people – and receive sparring, input and assistance from both Novozymes and Grundfos. The two companies seek solutions to remove polluting chemicals from water and improve cleaning of wastewater. That includes better filtering, less sludge, and recovery of phosphate, a precious nutrient, from wastewater. “This is an excellent chance to see what we can do in combination with Novozymes. Adding biotechnology to what we can do in for instance digital dosing might very well open brand-new possibilities for e.g. water treatment. And while we strengthen our connection with Novozymes, we also get an opportunity to review fresh takes on the water challenges from all over the world. We need new partnerships to solve these great challenges, and this is another step down that road,” says Lars Enevoldsen, Group Vice President, Technology & Innovation at Grundfos.

Bentley Technology Applied in Innovative Projects to Address Challenges of Aging T&D Infrastructure

Bentley Technology Applied in Innovative Projects to Address Challenges of Aging T&D Infrastructure

Faced with aging transmission and distribution infrastructure and limited O&M budgets , utilities strive to maximize the lifespan of their current equipment by making optimal decisions on infrastructure replacement and maintenance while reducing costs and improving customer service. Here are three examples of how Bentley solutions addressed the unique and daunting challenges of aging T&D infrastructure. Indianapolis Power & Light (IPL) began to collect substation indicator data in AssetWise for critical assets in 2011. In response to several publicly noticeable manhole events, IPL also began collecting data for the downtown underground network distribution system for indicators for manholes, vaults, network transformers, and network protectors. The goal was to use data to reduce the number of substation failures, improve proactive maintenance practices, and minimize the number of incidents in the downtown network system. Additionally, IPL wanted to improve the overall efficiency of the inspections and create an objective scoring method for asset health, criticality, risk, and follow-up work order priorities. Business logic was built in to step the inspector through the inspection process to ensure a complete and thorough inspection. A calculated indicator was configured to take the inspection data and calculate an overall health score for that asset. Management and field personnel were kept fully informed via automatic notifications of the health and status of critical assets and maintenance programs through an internal website. The sophistication of the inspection process (20,000 assets), automation of the data (300,000 indicators), and prioritization and follow-up work processes resulted in proactive maintenance practices that have reduced the number of equipment failures in the downtown network from 49 in 2011 to 15 in 2016. Similarly, substation transformer failures have been reduced to 0.2 percent, and the number of circuit breakers failing to close/open is trending down. Energex determined via a condition-based risk management analysis that the 57-year-old Zillmere substation in Brisbane, Australia needed refurbishment. Existing in-service equipment had deteriorated requiring excessive maintenance on some of the 33-kilovolt circuit breakers and isolators. Aurecon was engaged to undertake the primary design for equipment that had reached retirement age – including the replacement of 5 x 33 kilovolt outdoor circuit breakers (including the foundations), the replacement of 6 x 33 kilovolt bus disconnectors (including the supporting structures), lightning masts, the replacement of the AC board, and installation of a new marshalling box for cutover of existing circuit breaker control circuits in the switchyard. Aurecon completed the designs in Bentley Substation so Energex would get the benefit of accurate drawings and bills of materials and to ensure that the design integrated with any existing substation equipment not earmarked for replacement. Aurecon used LiDAR to scan the target area of the substation to develop an as-built 3D rendered representation. This model was brought into Bentley Substation and subsequently into their virtual reality facility in Cape Town, South Africa, enabling Aurecon to do a follow-up virtual site visit, walking through the substation and discussing the site, close to 12,000 kilometers away from Brisbane. This strategy provided significant insight into how to approach the integration of the new equipment into the substation and ensure new and replacement equipment was designed and fabricated to work with existing equipment. The model was shared with civil services to design the plinths for the substation equipment footings. All the services models were incorporated into one design model and the project was registered in ProjectWise. Weekly meetings were held between South Africa- and Australia-based project engineers and project managers. Riaan Dippenaar, project engineer, Aurecon Cape Town, said, “Bentley Substation allowed us the opportunity to be proactive, accurate, innovative, and collaborative on a common design base between South Africa and Australia with a feeling of accomplishment.” In Sofia, Bulgaria, infrastructure is managed for the metropolitan region by the Transport Infrastructure Department. A comprehensive inventory of available public lighting facilities for the Transport Infrastructure Department was necessary after an analysis of current street lighting information proved it to be incomplete and insufficient. The inventory focused on the quantity of street lighting and the current condition of the infrastructure. The government also sought to reduce spending public funds on maintenance, improve infrastructure overall, and lessen the duration of repairs. Sofia Municipality retained DAVID Holding Company to develop a geographic information system (GIS) to oversee and organize the infrastructure. DAVID Holding used Bentley OpenUtilities to manage the street lighting infrastructure and collected condition data. The project team used OpenUtilities’ pre-configured electric data model as the foundation for the customized street lighting data model, which lowered deployment costs and allowed DAVID Holding to meet the project deadline by cutting a significant amount of design time. OpenUtilities provides a single source of information for Sofia planners, engineers, and operations professionals to understand the current physical state of the public lighting facilities and make better decisions about maintenance, improving customer service processes while reducing operational costs. The GIS also improved budget planning for the municipality. Upgrading the street lighting where needed, making requisite repairs swiftly, and lowering environmental impact will serve to benefit the nearly 1.3 million residents of the expansive Sofia Municipality. Petya Todorova, senior expert, DAVID holding, said, “Bentley OpenUtilities gave us the freedom to define a complex data model that best fits our needs. Moreover, OpenUtilities technology enables every participant in the management of the infrastructure to use a single source of information, which significantly improves our work.”

FilterCopy and India Film Project launch new project

India Film Project , in partnership with digital entertainment company Pocket Aces , is launching a project that gives writers an opportunity to develop their sketch ideas and scripts into a digital video with FilterCopy . The project is titled “Web Writers’ Lab” and is set to open applications to all writers on 5th December. “Web Writers’ Lab” marks the collaboration between one of the largest film communities in the country, India Film Project and top digital entertainment company, Pocket Aces. The goal of the project is to help identify and nurture writers from different parts of country, and provide them with the necessary training and platform to break through into the digital content creation. The project hopes to bring forth unique new voices into the digital ecosystem and provide audiences with more freshly brewed content. An important part of this project is the mentorship that the shortlisted writers will receive as they will also work very closely with team FilterCopy who are creating some of the most successful pieces of video content in the Indian digital space today. They will get a taste of the trials and tribulations as well as the rewards of being a writer ins today’s digital age. Aditya Pisharody, Head of Video for FilterCopy shared, “It is very exciting to be working with IFP on this project. We believe that there is a tremendous amount of creative talent throughout the country – not just in the metros or big cities. However, they often lack the access, opportunity, or resources to take their ideas forward. While script labs and workshops can be helpful, this program will go one step further to produce and release these videos on FilterCopy – with full production and distribution resources provided. By launching this program, we aim to provide a platform for these aspiring writers to showcase their talent and help them reach a wider audience. This will make the entire experience both tangible and rewarding, and we look forward to working with and nurturing the next generation of creators.” Ritam Bhatnagar, Founder and Director of India Film Project said, “We live in a time where thousands of fiction videos are uploaded every day. It’s a great time to create content. The production, distribution, investments are being taken care of. However, one place we noticed that content lacked in solid writing. Even the best produced videos dwindled due to bad writing. We soon realised the need to involve and groom writers to better adapt to the digital space and find the right mentors for the next set of upcoming writers. Web Writer’s Lab is a step towards creating an ecosystem for training writers and giving them an opportunity to take their skill to the next level.” The final video will be distributed on FilterCopy’s channels which have a collective base of over 3 million people and a weekly reach of 40 million , providing the winning writer a rare opportunity to take their passion to the next level. IFP houses a large community of writers and creative people and Pocket Aces are the largest players in the digital entertainment space, who run the popular online channel FilterCopy – this project is sure to produce a viral hit in the upcoming months upon its completion around March 2018. All writers – experienced or first-timers are encouraged to register and send in their scripts for the “Web Writers’ Lab” for which entries are open until 31st December midnight. The theme chosen is comedy and innovative formats of all varieties will be welcomed. This includes parodies, spoofs, satire, musical, social commentary etc.
