AEGEA will incorporate TaKaDu in Manaus to improve efficiency, reduce water loss and enhance customer service
Sao Paolo, Brazil and Yehud, Israel – September 2nd, 2019 – AEGEA, one of the largest private sector sanitation companies in the Brazil, is expanding the use of TaKaDu as their Central Event Management software provider, and will deploy the solution in Aguas de Manaus.
A year ago, AEGEA took over the Manaus concession, which became the second largest concessionaire within the group in terms of revenue source. Aguas de Manaus is determined to bring the highest international quality standards to the services it provides by implementing TaKaDu CEM as a part of this strategy.
TaKaDu is the leading CEM solution for water utilities, enabling a single dashboard for all network events and incidents. Based on big data analytics and machine learning, TaKaDu’s cloud-based service detect, analyze and manage network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues, operational failures, and more. TaKaDu seamlessly integrates with other enterprise IT systems (GIS, asset management, work order management, CRM, etc.) and detection technologies (e.g. acoustic sensors), delivering a central hub for quicker response times and the fast resolution of events.
Amir Peleg, TaKaDu Founder & CEO said “We are proud to work with our long term customer and partner, the AEGEA group, and deploy our cutting edge CEM solution in Aguas de Manaus, in order to bring higher customer service and reduce water loss. We are looking forward to helping Aguas do Manaus achieve the full potential from the system”.
Marco Aurélio Silva, responsible for Efficiency and Technologies in Aegea said “We have deployed the TaKaDu solution in 11 cities that we are responsible for the municipal water distribution. From the use of this technology we are having great results with increased operational efficiency of our concessions, through the analysis of data from all sensing in our water distribution networks, generating information and events that are essential for our operation. Manaus is the capital city of Amazon State, with 2.2 million inhabitants, considering the size and complexity of the city, it is an important challenge for us. TaKaDu is being deployed as a key edge technical solution to reduce NRW, detecting leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and operational failures, supporting operations to bring the highest international quality standards to our services in Manaus”.
