Replica in Practice
In 2019, Replica solutions helped Melbourne Water achieve $2.5 million in capital cost savings during the installation of an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system at the Winneke Water Treatment Plant (WTP). We used Replica to create a comprehensive dynamic simulation model of the existing WTP systems to identify means to stabilize flows and minimize UV system capacity requirements which reduced capital and operating costs. The dynamic model was used to revamp the control strategy, revise tuning parameters and update the control narrative — with zero downtime for the operational WTP.
We’re applying Replica for a variety of projects and clients around the world, including to minimize energy and chemical usage on water and industrial water-related processes, to develop alternative control strategies against wet weather events and to create digital twins of infrastructure around the world.
