Digital twins are used more often in the digital world. Also, in the field of operation of pipeline systems they can be a very useful asset. Digital twin can be used to monitor performance of a pipeline system and plan maintenance better. Another application is the training of operators.

During the webinar we will discuss the advantages of using a digital twin in the operation of pipeline systems. This will be followed by a demonstration of the digital twin system WANDA-FEWS, which is developed by Deltares. WANDA is the hydraulics of pipeline simulation tool and Delft-FEWS is the data integration platform both developed by Deltares and used world-wide. Combining these two, results in a high-quality performance monitoring platform.
