Gemini Private: Keep Track of Home and Business Water Installations
With Gemini Private, the job of keeping track of the service connections and handling applications by private customers becomes much easier.
As a frontrunner in the digitalisation of the water, wastewater, and stormwater networks, Volue’s Gemini suite gives an overview of all water-related assets in a municipality, the condition the assets are in and maintenance needs. This enables municipalities to work more efficiently and deliver on their goals.
Part of the Gemini suite, Gemini Private is focused on water assets not owned by the municipality, but which have a huge impact on the performance of the overall system.
Gemini Private is a solutions portfolio for the digital documentation and follow-up of all types of private facilities and objects that are either connected to the municipality's water infrastructure or for which the municipality has administrative responsibility.
Today, Gemini Private is used in close to 100 Norwegian municipalities covering more than half of the Norwegian market. Among the municipalities that use this solution are those with the largest populations, such as Oslo, Trondheim, and Stavanger.
The system automates the analysis of faulty water supply and of the process of dealing with it.

More about Gemini Private
The Gemini portfolio is made up of physically connected software, but with Gemini Private, private house and business owners are responsible for the maintenance and for the decision to purchase and install the correct solutions for water purification, water metres, and more.
If a private owner has a problem with their water supply, they are responsible for fixing the issue. Gemini Private makes sure, via its digital connections, that the municipality sends a letter to inform private owners how to look after their water supply, and also provides a direct digital connection to the plumber that they will call.
In this way, the documentation of the repair work goes automatically to the municipality. The municipality keeps a record and confirms that the waterworks in the private home or business are functioning according to standards.
