Innovyze Announces Release of ICMLive; Real-Time Operational Forecasting of Urban and Rural Catchments - Revolutionary New Product Equips Water Utilities and River Authorities with Unprecedented Decision-Making Capability

Broomfield, Colorado USA, February 05, 2013Innovyze, a leading global innovator of wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies, today announced the worldwide release of ICMLive for real-time operational forecasting of urban and rural catchments. The pioneering release provides water utilities timely, accurate and reliable forecasts of what will happen within a catchment, based on past and current observations of a multitude of parameters along with future rainfall predictions. The product combines the comprehensive integrated catchment modeling capabilities of InfoWorks ICM with sophisticated real-time operational forecasting, early warning, and emergency management. This debut reflects Innovyze’s vanguard position in the water industry and its ongoing commitment to delivering pioneering smart water solutions that enhance the safety, reliability and sustainability of the world’s wet infrastructure systems.

Advances in computer simulation and hardware have made real-time operation of stormwater, wastewater, river and combined systems a reality. ICMLive allows both large and small utilities and water authorities to manage their systems more efficiently and effectively than ever before. A powerful risk assessment and real-time decision making tool, it enables managers and operators to consider the influence of a full range of catchment factors in the management of flooding and the reduction of unregulated discharges; the optimization of storage and existing infrastructure, leading to savings on capital works; and the optimization of pumps to lower energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions.

ICMLive is designed to work automatically. Once a system is configured, real-time data is continually and automatically harvested and quality checked. This data can be defined by a number of parameters, including observed and forecast radar rainfall, online water quality measurements, and ancillary structure and pump operation time series. Simulations are run automatically at a user-defined frequency using the full hydrodynamic and technological capabilities of InfoWorks ICM, including one- and two-dimensional modeling techniques, real-time control, dynamic water quality analysis, and GPU-enhanced and remote simulation. Simulation frequency can change in response to user-defined conditions. For example, increased rainfall intensity can trigger a reduction in the interval between simulations.

Warnings or alerts triggered during the forecast period are instantly displayed via the rich ICMLive user interface, allowing system operators to see at a glance which areas need attention and what options might be taken. Comparison alerts can be used to highlight differences between observed and modeled results, enabling users to refine their models — creating unprecedented confidence in simulation results.

ICMLive also allows operators to perform additional scenario analysis simulations, exploring alternative real time control scenarios, such as the impact of switching on a pump earlier than planned, and quickly seeing the effect of these changes on the system. The wide range of capabilities available in ICMLive allow it to be used as a key tool in the decision making process, enabling operators to take action to avoid system issues, release timely alerts, and quickly deploy response teams if necessary.

“Integrated catchment modeling is an invaluable tool for water utility planning, engineering and water quality departments,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President and Chief Operating Officer of Innovyze. “However, translating these benefits to real-time operations has proven difficult. With ICMLive, Innovyze has changed the paradigm for how and where integrated catchment models can be applied. This milestone solution gives engineering professionals the most advanced and comprehensive toolset available for planning, designing, operating and sustaining safe, reliable and efficient drainage systems while effectively protecting public health and our waterways.”
