We strive to maintain the high quality of water resources and efficient water management practices

At Petrol, we strive to maintain diligent and efficient water management practices, which include care for water quality. This ensures medically safe levels throughout the distribution network. By providing our comprehensive "Digital Intelligent Smart Networks – Water Systems" (DISNet – WS) services, we provide support that helps to improve the efficiency of the water supply system. We help to identify water losses and advise on measures that can reduce those losses. This provides managers with greater system reliability, improves efficiency, and reduces risk.

We operate water supply systems and provide our partners with sustainable and efficient development of water supply systems, modernization of those systems, as well as a high-quality drinking water supply at the lowest manageable operating cost. The management of water supply systems is supported with modern information solutions that enable efficient real-time management.

Our water resource management solutions:

Improving the efficiency of water supply systems

We use DISNet comprehensive digital solutions to improve the efficiency of water supply systems and ensure the cost-effective planning of those systems. Our goal is to provide end-users with a sufficient supply of drinking water by maintaining the proper pressure levels in the water supply network, at the lowest possible operation and maintenance costs.

We identify and reduce water losses and use digital solutions to manage water supply systems and real-time drinking water distribution.

The digitalization of water supply systems

We manage water supply systems with the help of modern information platforms, which we use to capture, confirm, and collect the relevant data in a single space. As part of this process, we use digital telemetry monitoring of the water supply network and facilities.

By digitalizing the water supply system and using digital management systems, you can reduce unnecessarily large water withdrawals from the outside environment, which optimizes operational costs. Simultaneously, the process allows you to conduct dynamic monitoring of hydraulic conditions in the water system and ensure the quality of drinking water in real time.

The management of water systems

Digitalized management processes allow us to improve the energy efficiency of water system operations, while ensuring the highest possible quality of services at the lowest cost, as well as suitable drinking water quality.

 

Development projects

At Petrol, we follow the latest energy management trends. This is why we are taking part in numerous development projects. By developing new, mostly digital tools, we can ensure solutions that provide users with complete monitoring of water supply systems operations, along with the possibility of quick and proactive interventions intended to optimize processes and to reduce the use of energy and the overall carbon footprint.

Cooperation made easy

Business models

We carry out the digitalization of water supply systems and management systems using various business models, which we can adapt to the needs of our partners.
Working with local communities, cities, and municipalities, we can carry out projects through contractual water conservation guarantees and prepare projects on a turnkey basis.

Working together to ensure the quality of water resources

The digitalization of Ljubljana's water supply system

Working with Ljubljana's public water supply company, Vodovod Kanalizacija Snaga, we have set up a joint long-term project to improve the efficiency of the water supply system with an emphasis on the efficient monitoring of drinking water distribution. Support for our project came from DISNet-WS, our state-of-the-art information system for efficient and cost-effective planning and management in real time. On the basis of this system, we also created a digital twin of the water supply system. This enabled us to successfully reduce the transport time from the water source to the end user in a specific area, as well as to increase the activation frequency of the Hrastje water supply facility.

Remote monitoring that enables more efficient management of the water supply system in the Šalek Valley

We used our comprehensive solution to set up remote monitoring of the water system in the Šalek Valley, which is operated by the Velenje Municipal Services Company. In the process, we ensured comprehensive oversight of the water supply in the towns of Velenje, Šoštanj, and Šmartno ob Paki, with an emphasis on the amount of drinking water that is processed and distributed. By digitalizing the infrastructure and management services, we helped to reduce water loss to the level of contemporary water systems (a water loss less than 20%), i.e., in an amount twice the volume specified by the original contractual requirement. By upgrading the monitoring center, we managed to ensure a solid basis for the economic development and the sustainable management of the water supply system with the help of a digital twin.

Better planning of a water irrigation system in Čakovec, Croatia

The Međimurje water supply company Međimurske Vode used a digital twin of their water supply project to assess the capacity and feasibility of water withdrawal from their water supply system for the needs of mist spraying of orchards to prevent frost. As part of the project, we prepared appropriate scientific studies for the analysis of the risks that can occur during the activation and operation of such systems. We also conducted hydraulic analyses of the plans for the irrigation system and the dimensioning of devices. We set operating conditions and determined the scope for the planned investment measures for the water supply system, should the operators opt to connect to a mist spraying system. This provided us with a professional scientific basis for decisions about further production and the supply of water for the irrigation system, as well as an understanding of the expected risk that such a connection could pose to the existing water supply system.
