A detection system helps schools save water – Trends-Tendances sur PC

Brussels-based company Shayp has developed an AI-based solution that detects water leaks in real time. The application is currently being installed in 86 French schools. In five years, it will allow them to collectively save more than a billion liters of water.

“Water is a precious resource that we must use with care. The fact that a country like France was confronted, a few months ago, with the greatest water shortage for centuries shows the acuteness of the situation. Good water management is therefore more important than ever,” says Grégoire de Hemptinne, co-founder and COO of the Brussels-based start-up Shayp. Especially when you know that, on average, one in three buildings experiences a leak each year. Also, 95% of leaks remain hidden for a long time.

Shayp has developed an automated system that uses artificial intelligence to detect and assess water leaks in real time. The combination of hardware and software is accessible and therefore gives building managers, owners and insurers an instant overview of water consumption and losses. This results in average savings of 20 to 30% on bills. “We have already implemented our technology in more than 550 schools and universities in Belgium, France and the Netherlands, says Grégoire de Hemptinne. These are often vulnerable due to low awareness and poorly maintained infrastructure. Due to our experience in the sector, we have been selected to equip 86 schools in the Grand Est region

in France with our real-time leak detection system.

A partner will be responsible for installing the more than 300 devices and will be automatically notified of any anomalies or leaks.” This project will allow the 86 schools to collectively save one billion liters of water over five years. This is the equivalent than 400 Olympic swimming pools.

This will also save 5 million euros. This money can be used for education.

“At the same time, we see this initiative as the ideal opportunity to raise awareness among teachers and students with the help of a concrete practical example, adds Grégoire

of Hemptinne. With this flagship project, we also hope to convince administrators of other educational institutions and public buildings. In addition, we are helping them to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”

Six million liters of water

The project will last five years in total. It started in February 2021 with a pilot installation in Saint-Laurent, in the Ardennes department. The agricultural school in question saved around 6 million liters of water and 20,000 euros in just a few months. She has

also emitted 845 kilos of CO2

less. Currently, Shayp’s facility partner is rolling out to other schools.

From the first 24 hours of installation, the system can detect anomalies and alert the building manager. Thanks to machine learning, the tool also becomes increasingly intelligent.
