Yarra Valley Water is the largest of Melbourne's three water utilities and one of the most advanced in Australia. Yarra Valley Water provides water supply and sewerage services to about 700,000 connections in the northern and eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
The case study of Yarra Valley Water and TaKaDu shows how the use of TaKaDu for monitoring the utilityís water network helped Yarra Valley Water. It demonstrates the high value of TaKaDu - reducing water loss and saving time and costs while increasing efficiency.
On March 29th 2012, Yarra Valley Water held a workshop in Melbourne, Australia, to present its rollout and usage of TaKaDu's water network monitoring service.
This clip captures the highlights from this workshop.
Aguas de Antofagasta, Chile
Aguas de Antofagasta operates a concession for the distribution of water in Chileís Antofagasta Region, supplying water to the five largest cities in the region.
The case study of Aguas de Antofagasta and TaKaDu demonstrates how TaKaDu can help a utility to increase its efficiency quickly. With TaKaDu, Aguas de Antofagasta reduced its water loss, while improving the performance of its leak detection and repair teams.
Marco Kutulas Peet, General Manager of Aguas de Antofagasta, talks about his water utility's adoption of TaKaDu's water network monitoring.
Hagihon (Jerusalem Water Utility), Israel
Hagihon, Jerusalemís Water and Wastewater Works Company, supplies water services to a population of 800,000 people. While the water supplies available to Hagihon are limited, the utility continuously maintains and improves its water distribution network, keeping its Non-Revenue-Water at approximately 12%.
The case study of Hagihon and TaKaDu shows how TaKaDu helped Hagihon to face some of its challenges through early detection of network inefficiencies, allowing it to save water and energy.
