Based in San Sebastian, Spain, Bunt Planet provides software for reducing water losses: BuntBrain LeakFinder and BuntBrain WaterMeters. BuntBrain LeakFinder is a smart, inexpensive, data analytics solution which combines artificial intelligence (to detect that an irregularity is happening in the network) and hydraulic simulation (for leak positioning). The calibrated hydraulic model and data collected from flow meters and other sensors (pressure sensors or customer water meters, if available) is analysed by self-learning algorithms. ‘Deep learning’ analysis detects irregularities in flow within pipe networks and hydraulic simulation locates their position.
BuntBrain LeakFinder is a transparent and accurate tool for a utility to view leakages, at all levels, within the pipe network and prioritise actions. Even very small leaks (< 0,5l/s) can be detected rapidly before they can escalate. It can locate the leaks with high accuracy (< 300m). It enables water networks to be designed around big DMAs (> 15 km pipe length), without losing accuracy – although it also detects leaks within smaller DMAs. The ability to work within a large DMA (unique amongst competing solutions) provides water utilities with the advantage of lower maintenance costs and reduces exposure to risks relating to water quality or supply.
