Guest Speakers Our April guest speakers are Jack Lu, Digital Delivery Technical Lead and Bradley Allpike, Technical Director of Drinking Water and Treatment and Principal Process Engineer at Jacobs who will be talking aboutEmbracing Digital Solutions to Enhance the Lifecycle of Water Assets.
Jack has a Mechanical Engineering background and 15 years professional experience in the delivery of water and wastewater assets and has extensive experience in applying digital tools, particularly during design delivery, to enhance visualisation, collaboration and design engagement on projects ranging from large trunk main pipelines to water treatment plants.
Brad has delivered projects across Australia, the Middle East, South East Asia, North Africa and China over a 20+ year career. Recently Brad was the Engineering Manager for the Bryn Estyn Water Treatment plant, where Digital Engineering tools were extensively used for delivery of the detailed design. Brad is at the forefront of Jacobs Digital Solutions and involved in rolling out these application to benefit design, commissioning, construction and through the operational phase of projects.
With the ever-growing challenge to become more efficient and innovative, the water industry is embracing Digital Solutions as an answer, but what is it? Consider Digital Solutions as the broader holistic approach to solving problems through the collaboration of diverse technologies, data collection and manipulation, and real-world integrations. The benefits of Digital Solutions are often misconceived to be limited to the delivery and operation of assets; however, extended advantages and benefits are gained throughout the whole asset lifecycle from planning through to decommissioning. Come and peel the layers of the Digital onion, deep dive into Jacobs’ proprietary digital twin solution known as Replica and see how they can be applied to your next water asset.
