Management of water supply delivery to patrons and staff in a modern stadium is often deployed primarily because the potential demand for water supply during peak use periods (full capacity events) can exceed the capacity of the water supply coming onto the site due to older municipal water supply infrastructure. This can be exacerbated by water delivery points that are left running, both accidently and sometimes deliberately.
This is further complicated by the significant variation in demand for most services including water supply, between non-event day use (seen as normal demand) and that of event day use. Capacity event days at a stadium are typically restricted by governmental actions taking into account impacts on traffic congestion, demand on municipal services, etc. This often results in a maximum of 1 capacity event per week throughout the year, and often less than that on an annual basis.
Avac’s technically sophisticated electronic water management system, Master-Trol™, is a site-wide network based control and monitoring system that allows the facility management staff to have programmable and real time control over every water point in the facility by utilising the fibre optic comms network backbone within the facility.
Water supply performance issues are resolved by ensuring that valve run times are controlled for duration and cannot be left running indefinitely, which in turn delivers environmental benefits of saving precious water.
Deployment of an Avac Water Management system facilitates implementation of programmed maintenance or device replacement based on usage which is derived from the electronic logging conducted by the system.
Avac Water Management systems allow facility management staff to easily identify constantly running water points and subsequently shut off those water points with a few mouse clicks.
The system can be fully integrated with the traditional BMS system allowing for any system alarm conditions to be recorded and transmitted to staff in order to be mobilised for rectification actions.
Remote access and control of any or all valves in the project can be provided to authorised personnel using a computer, iPad etc, allowing for very fast response times for diagnosis of an issues.
