Novafos and HOFOR – two major water suppliers in Denmark – are partners in the LEAKman project. Each company has designated two districts to be full-scale demonstration areas. They are now transformed into state-of-the-art water distribution networks.

The process of establishing four full-scale demonstration facilities in the northern capital region of Copenhagen runs from 2016-2020. In the four demonstration areas – Klampenborg, Gentofte South, Mileparken and Hanevad – the solutions of LEAKman will be implemented on a total of 95 kilometers of main pipes.

The full-scale implementation involves state-of-the-art tools and techniques like intelligent valves, pumps, noise loggers, smart meters, smart inspections, SCADA, online hydraulic modelling, GIS and a holistic management information system. The demonstration facilities are planned, designed and after implementation and testing the staff at the utilities will be trained in operating and maintaining the systems.
