Hitachi Consulting Highlights Proactive Water Management Solutions at the American Water Summit 2017

Established solutions to reduce water usage and waste, cut costs, protect the environment and accelerate the journey to sustainability

DALLAS, Nov. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hitachi Consulting, a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd (TSE: 6501), and leading provider of consulting-led solutions and services, will highlight the proactive Hitachi Water Solutions at the American Water Summit November 28-30, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Hitachi delivers a full spectrum of water management solutions—from water quality, usage reduction, treatment and distribution to wastewater management, analytics and tools to assist in regulatory compliance. These solutions are helping organizations significantly lower water costs, minimize unplanned disruptions, meet compliance requirements, and reduce ground water depletion and contamination.

As a Silver Sponsor of the American Water Summit 2017, senior executives from Hitachi Consulting will be available to discuss how organizations can move ahead with Hitachi's end-to-end water management solutions. "Hitachi Consulting is actively engaged with both private manufacturing companies and municipalities around the world, supporting them with wastewater management, data analytics and usage reductions, leveraging our experience that incorporates engineering design, proprietary equipment and program management," said David Wechsler, Senior Vice President at Hitachi Consulting.

As businesses and municipalities become proactive in planning and managing water usage, Hitachi Consulting is helping these organizations to cut costs and be more efficient. In addition, Hitachi Consulting applies data analytics to provide actionable insights that improve water quality and process efficiencies. "Organizations today are using sensors on their equipment and looking for big data analysis so they can use that information to generate alerts and take proactive action," said Wechsler.

Hitachi believes social innovation holds the key to tackling the world's largest water challenges and meeting diverse water needs. From assessment through implementation, measurement, and continuous improvement, Hitachi provides solutions that help organizations improve water infrastructures, contribute to safe, reliable water supplies, and use advanced analytics and real-time data to efficiently manage overall water use and treatment cycles.

"Water is an essential natural resource upon which all life depends. As part of its Social Innovation Business, Hitachi strives to help our clients achieve both operational excellence and sustainability goals by using and wasting less of this precious commodity. Whether working with manufacturing plants, utilities or municipalities, our goals are to reduce water consumption, improve water quality and reduce wastewater throughout the entire value chain. Addressing the global water crisis is at the heart of Hitachi's Social Innovation mission, and we are committed to tackling this challenge with our customers," said Ellen Dowd, Senior Vice President of Solutions for Hitachi's Social Innovation Business.

Hitachi Helps Organizations To Become Sustainability Leaders

Hitachi is actively engaged in helping manufacturers and municipalities to move from sustainability theory to practice. Hitachi has completed a number of water reduction, wastewater management and water monitoring projects, using flexible business models and financing options to deliver successful outcomes. The following are representative examples of these accomplishments from around the world.

  • South West Water: Hitachi and South West Water (SWW) collaborated to co-create a cloud-based IoT analytics and business intelligence platform to help predict operational performance, deploy maintenance solutions more effectively and comply with increasingly stringent industry regulations. "The company's expertise with data will help ensure the project runs quickly and efficiently, helping us to mitigate risk and drive sustainable change within the organization," said Kevin Nankivell, Head of Information Technology at South West Water.

  • Hilton Istanbul: Hitachi enabled the world's leading hospitality company to achieve sustainability goals by treating grey water to irrigate the hotel's 15 acres of gardens, reducing water consumption by 10% over 5 years. "Hilton worldwide has a global sustainability policy and one of my roles in Turkey is to explore how we can reduce well water and surface water consumption and decrease our impact on the environment," said Hamit Yalazer, Chief Engineer, Hilton Istanbul.

  • Global Beverage Company: Hitachi helped a leading manufacturer design and build water quality and wastewater treatment systems with improvements in overall design specifications, implementation of sensors, SCADA system controls, automation and data analytics. This dramatically simplified operational requirements, helped facilitate compliance and reduced notices of violation.
