Alexandria Renew Enterprises (AlexRenew), the wastewater treatment provider for Alexandria, Virginia, has selected asset management software provider MentorAPM to provide and implement a complete computerized maintenance management solution (CMMS).

Continuing on its 70-year-old mission to protect public health and the environment, AlexRenew will utilize the MentorAPM Work & Asset Performance Management Suite to optimize its infrastructure investments, increase productivity and enhance its ability to manage existing assets and maintenance through improved processes.

The MentorAPM Work & Asset Performance Management Suite is a cloud-based CMMS with an extensive catalog of master asset types and asset strategy libraries that help expedite system configuration and management programs for rapid time to value. It provides field operators with real-time insight and a holistic understanding of system assets, integrating data from both vertical and GIS-based horizontal assets seamlessly into a single platform. 

“We are currently tracking approximately 100 maintenance management processes,” said David Roberts, chief technology officer, AlexRenew. “By partnering with MentorAPM, we expect to increase that number and, more importantly, improve our data quality. MentorAPM understands the importance of data to protect and extend the life of assets the public has entrusted to us. We look forward to transforming our operations and the opportunity to begin foreseeing issues before they become problems.”

The contract with AlexRenew, which has an initial term of five years, includes a complete lifecycle of services. Following success on other collaborative projects with MentorAPM, CDM Smith will provide support services throughout the duration of the project to maximize asset management outcomes.  

“We partnered with MentorAPM because of the unique way it can enhance our clients’ asset management capabilities, and we are honored to continue working on the AlexRenew project team,” said John Helwig, Asset Management Specialist, CDM Smith. “It’s professionally fulfilling to see a growing number of utilities understand the value of what advanced asset management capabilities can do in terms of asset control, utility cost savings and overall organizational resilience.”

MentorAPM enables asset management set on an ISO 55000 foundation of value-based, risk-based and evidence-based decision support. Specific outcomes typically include improved efficiency, reduced maintenance budgets, optimized resource allocation and capital planning, risk assessment and mitigation, and improved asset lifecycle management.

AlexRenew is a public regional wastewater treatment provider that cleans approximately 38 million gallons of wastewater per day and serves more than 300,000 customers in the City of Alexandria and parts of Fairfax County. It owns approximately $1 billion in total assets, including four pump stations, two service chambers, four intercepting sewers, four combined sewer outfalls and a water resource recovery facility.

This contract announcement comes on the heels of the announcement of a similar MentorAPM project in Santa Monica, California.

“We are honored to be working with forward thinking agencies like AlexRenew and Santa Monica, to support their asset management objectives and transform their asset operations,” said MentorAPM CEO Tacoma Zach.
