Webinar: How Could ‘Digital Twins’ Add Value to the Water Sector?

Date: 26th August 2020

Location: Online

Time: 12-1pm

Duration: 1 hour Lunchtime Webinar


The Centre for Digital Built Britain defines a ‘Digital Twin’ as a “digital representation of a physical asset or the service delivered by it, used to make decisions that will affect the physical asset. Any changes to the physical assets will be reflected in the digital twin”.

Whilst Digital Twins have been adopted in other sectors, their adoption by the water industry has to date been limited.  This webinar therefore seeks to answer the question ‘How could Digital Twins add value to the water sector?

Following an introduction to the subject, this question will be answered from different perspectives by the following speakers based on their own experiences:

  • Atkins
  • Anglian Water
  • Dwr Cymru Welsh Water
  • Mott MacDonald Bentley



This seminar is particularly suitable for senior and middle managers across the water sector who have heard about Digital Twinning and that it could impact their sphere of responsibility, and who would like to find out more about what the potential opportunities, benefits and challenges could be.


Neil Walker - Asset Management Technical Director at Atkins

Mark Hedges - Asset Data and Information Manager at Anglian Water

Danielle Williams - Information Systems Manager at Welsh Water

Daniel Buxton - Design Manager at Mott MacDonald Bentley


This is a free event for all WIF members.


Please note that only those registered will be admitted to the webinar. The last day for registering is Tuesday 25th August.
