issues related to water involve challenges going beyond the territory of Grand
Narbonne but which can be an economic lifeline for a community, therefore of
The Urban Community of Grand Narbonne has made
the choice for the development of its sustainability and also for working on
all subjects concerning water: reuse of wastewater, watering of vines.
challeng lies in identifying the best solutions of doing savings in water
consumption, and in particular upstream, by working on detecting the water
leaks in the case of underground networks. The selected solution will be the one that Grand
Narbonne will be able to test on its territory, but having as well a broader
dimension, which may also potentially interest private partners such as VEOLIA.
This action does not directly affect the general public but rather improves the
quality of services provided by local administration/ government and therefore
there are financial repercussions in stake that will certainly have an indirect
financial impact on the population. Within the Urban Community of Grand
Narbonne, we have a service dedicated to water and we participate in research
programs developed within this field, in connection with INRA.
With regards to the solution provider that will be able to take up this
challenge, the idea is to make from our territory, a territory of
experimentation for the solution provider and we can be the reference for this
Target community and Location
- This This solution must be proposed on the geographical area of the territory of Grand
Narbonne; the solution must be scalable on all territories and also in
relation to the problems of private partners.
- Municipalities: city, Public institution of inter-municipal co-operation (EPCI
in French), private partners: all the structures that are in charge of the
underground water networks
- Water and its networks is an area of
competence of Grand Narbonne, but the main idea is to go beyond, involve the
private actors and have a benefit for our citizens.
challenge addresses a common environmental problem and a national issue: saving
water, and this can go through the detection of unidentified leaks.
Narbonne objective is to launch a full-scale test for the identified solution in
conjunction with partners from our territory.
- The team will be made up of the project
bearer and the entire technopolitan structure that will accompany the solution
provider in this challenge.
- We are
looking for new methods that allow a real economy, on a large scale: a precise
identification of the leak, allowing a precise intervention.
- A scalable solution, practical with a
high precision in the detection of the leak
- The project
team will help identify the best solution, providing it with all the necessary
information in order to match the requirements of this challenge. Information
about previous work, coaching and connections to potential partners will be
provided (Innovéum incubator, the departmental consular chambers) will make
sure that the solution provider will benefit from a turnkey support.
addition, a technical committee will be set up within the Grand Narbonne in
order to develop together with the solution provider the best tool for the
target population. In this way the tool will be tested on a regional scale and
100% adapted to our needs.
- It will also be possible to envisage a follow-up and
a privileged connection with the water service of Grand Narbonne. Moreover our
association with VEOLIA on the territory would make it possible to link the Solution
Provider with a partner having a greater influence
