    meeting 1002800 1920

    An interview with Peter Seltsikas, by Linda Kemp, AMCouncil Communications Specialist

    At Asset Management Council, our Strategy ’23 is made up of three strategic goals: Strengthen our Asset Management Community; Share Information and Knowledge; and Build Capacity and Capability.

    Imagine how my interest soared, then, when I stumbled across information regarding the smart network sensors created and operated by SA Water, being deployed within Sydney Water’s pipe networks. How collaborative, I thought! Two of AM Council’s member corporations proactively sharing knowledge dovetailed into our strategic goals and I therefore immediately arranged an interview with Peter Seltsikas from SA Water. During our chat, I discovered more about the smart sensor’s role at SA Water in terms of maintenance and reliability, as well as the partnership with Sydney Water.
