Key Challenges

Efficiently boost water resources

In many countries, growing populations and new ventures like – mining and power sector developments – are increasing demand for water. In some of these regions, seamlessly pumping water from lower to higher altitudes is required.

To manage demand across a complex, extensive network of sewage and treatment plants, you need full visibility of all aspects of the network with minimum commissioning time such as:

  • Water levels, pressures and flow

  • Automated valves and pumps associated with the pipeline

  • Auxiliary equipment such as the pump station substation
