Study on the optimisation of pipeline replacements with HpO® within the framework of a drinking water supply master plan
Application of an inovating system based on Artificial Intelligence
45 network replacement projects
The City of Noumea selected the Thésée Ingénierie (subsidiary of Altereo in New Caledonia) – SAFEGE – Altereo consortium for preparing the drinking water supply master plan.
Altereo participated, among others, specifically in the asset management component for optimizing the pipeline renewal programme. For this, the HpO® system based on artifical intelligence was applied.
The City of Noumea has a well managed asset dataset and network leak history for the past 18 years. This high quality data has thus helped demonstrate the power of the HpO® predictive model.
45 network replacement projects have been planned for the coming 20 years.
They represent around 35 km of networks. It is recommended that the work program be updated and adjusted every 2-3 years based on renewed data enriching the model and the evolving local priorities.
