Tackling one of the biggest global challenges

It’s imperative to find better, more energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions for managing the entire water cycle. Water utilities are under ever greater pressure to maintain a high level of service while reducing costs.

As demand for limited water resources continue to grow, water utilities will benefit from smart solutions that improve performance and enable growth, both to optimize the use of resources and improve bottom line. Smart water networks – containing ‘power train’ automation technologies (including drives, motors and switchgear) and sophisticated water flow and condition monitoring, management and control systems – are key to the water and wastewater industry to drive performance and secure profitable growth.
