Implementation Stories

BuntBrain by BuntPlanet
Implemented by FACSA in Borriana (Spain) in 2019

FACSA, the private water utility of the City of Borriana, implemented the solution in 2019. The network was originally divided into 12 District Metered Areas (DMA), ranging in size from 7 km to 66 km pipe length. If there was a leak in one of the DMAs, the utility had no alternative but to search within an area corresponding to the entire DMA where the leak was reported. As part of the implementation, valves were opened to create the new large DMA (HvDMA) and a dynamic calibration of the hydraulic model at HvDMA was performed to help identify errors such as missing pipes, closed valves, etc.


74 leaks detected and repaired, reducing the average night flow by 20% and water losses by 30%


The environmental benefits

  • BuntBrain reduces leaks and commercial losses up to 50% in a single product.

The Financial benefits

  • The payback time is less than one year for both small and large utilities.
