Today, water demand exceeds supply in many parts of the world, making the availability of water one of the biggest global challenges of modern times.
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.
Water networks can now utilize the growing expertise in remote monitoring and collect and analyze large amounts of data that provide real-time information about the status and condition of crucial assets. On a day-to-day basis, this facilitates effective decision-making and process optimization. For the future, it enables the development of knowledge-based demand and asset management strategies.
Our integrated solutions for the entire water sector are built from over 50 years of expertise working on hundreds of water projects around the world, including water intake, water transfer and distribution, desalination, as well as water and wastewater treatment.
