Improved utility monitoring solutions with Consibio.
Real business value.
50% cost savings.
In some use-cases, Consibio's IoT devices are only turned on and used for shorter measurement campaigns. This can result in devices that are only active approximately 50% of the time over a year. With Onomondo's PAYG (Pay-As-You-Go) model, this can be directly translated into 50% savings on SIM card rates compared to vendors with flat-rate models.
Real business value.
Hours saved on troubleshooting.
When an IoT device needs service due to unresponsiveness, the ability to locate individual SIMs and analyze network activity via the Traffic Monitor in the Onomondo platform has enabled Consibio to identify issues much faster and often without being on-site. In several cases, this has resulted in time savings of several hours per service case.
How Consibio's IoT sensors help utility companies.
Consibio has an intelligent plug-and-play sensor platform. They specialize in various bio-industries. One of their most recent market adoptions has been wastewater management, which develops a harmful, odorous, and corrosive gas called H2S (hydrogen sulfide).
Hydrogen sulfide is produced naturally as a result of the bacterial breakdown of organic matter. Globally, cities are centralizing wastewater treatment plants, occurring in numerous countries worldwide. This means that wastewater is being moved over farther distances, from one well to another thus greatly increasing the production of hydrogen sulfide and its associated challenges. When hydrogen sulfide is released in a receiving well, it corrodes the concrete inside the well. Wastewater treatment infrastructure corrosion means that the lifespan of the concrete making up our wells and wastewater treatment plants decreases from 100 years to 10 years, due solely to hydrogen sulfide.
Consibio provides one reliable hydrogen sulfide sensor and IoT connector with Onomondo connectivity and a data platform that provides insights and optimizations for utility providers. They combine the information of multiple sensors within their platform to paint a picture of what is happening inside the water treatment infrastructure.
Based on what they see in the data, the platform can make recommendations and act autonomously based on available technologies to determine the next steps to mitigate the production of hydrogen sulfide and reduce further damage.
- Pump a chemical through the sewer, which mitigates the toxic gas formation.
- Shoot a cleaning pig, a bullet-shaped cleaning device, through the pipe to remove bacterial biofilm.
- Filter the air released from the sewers with biofilters.
The recommendations to use these technologies are communicated via cloud software, SMS, or email to Consibio's users. The triggers are automatic; for example, if connected to a chemical dosing pump, the IoT connector automatically turns the pump on to release chemicals to clean the infrastructure.
Consibio’s intelligent and proactive sensor platform saves utility organizations on both time and environmental costs. Onomondo provides key IoT solutions that enable the Consibio platform and team to make the best possible product.
