Executives from water technology and pump manufacturer Xylem will participate in key panel discussions and workshops focused on accelerating innovative solutions for a smarter, more resilient water future at Singapore International Water Week, July 8-12. The company will also showcase its portfolio of advanced technologies to help address complex water management challenges, including its end-to-end platform of intelligent solutions that can dramatically enhance the productivity of operations and help utilities address the issue of water affordability.
Xylem has been one of the founding sponsors of SIWW since 2008 and has a strong presence in Singapore with a local office that serves as regional headquarters to drive the company’s growth in Southeast Asia. Xylem works with leading businesses and municipalities regionally, including Singapore’s National Water Agency PUB.
Xylem president and CEO Patrick Decker will participate in the Water Leaders Summit, the pillar event at SIWW, at which government officials, world organizations, and industry leaders convene with the common goal of addressing global water challenges through policymaking and thought leadership. The session “Getting Ready for A Digital Revolution” will explore how stakeholders within the water, automation and data management and security sectors can work together to accelerate the migration to smart water infrastructure.
“The water industry is in the early days of a major transformation, as the urgent need to address challenges like water scarcity, flood prevention, and non-revenue water are met with an abundance of available data and new technology-enabled solutions,” said Decker. “SIWW provides a valuable platform for industry leaders to collaborate and advance these critical solutions and explore new business models to address the needs of a growing global population. Xylem looks forward to contributing to this dialogue and embracing new approaches to help solve the major water challenges of our time.”
Xylem will present multiple solutions to help build Asia’s resilience to natural disasters like flooding and unprecedented stormwater volumes, in addition to ongoing management of water and wastewater operations. It will also unveil a new series of Godwin FP Dri-Prime flood-protection pumps, certified by insurance firm FM lobal for flood protection, with optional Field Smart Technology, the telemetry and wireless technology that provides smart remote monitoring and control of the pump from any smartphone, table or desktop computer. It will also present its recently launched Godwin NC150S Dri-Prime Pump.
