ABB and TaKaDu are providing a water management solution that will boost efficiency and reduce water leakage in Ho Chi Minh City, one of the world’s fastest growing cities
Saigon Water Supply Corporation (SAWACO) is deploying ABB’s digital control and monitoring technologies together with TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management Solution as part of its restoration of Ho Chi Minh City’s water distribution network.
The ABB solution – ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus SCADA – will monitor and control the entire water distribution system and integrate TaKaDu’s Event Management Solution, which detects, analyzes and manages network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues and operational failures.
The massive urban project is aiming to increase efficiency, reduce water leakage, prevent disruptions and ensure everyone has access to clean water in Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam’s economic powerhouse. Last year, Ho Chi Minh City lost nearly 30 percent of its potable water to leaking and damaged pipes.
ABB’s and TaKaDu’s complementary solutions will enable SAWACO to monitor the network conditions digitally through multiple data collection points, such as sensors and meters, and offer actionable insights to reduce non-revenue water.
SAWACO will then be able to increase the amount of water delivered to the city’s industries and eight million residents. At a first estimate, SAWACO will hit 50 Mio m³/year of water savings, while production cost savings could be higher than 10 MUSD a year.
Kevin Kosisko, Managing Director of ABB’s Power Generation & Water business commented:
“Water projects like Ho Chi Minh City’s show the full potential of advanced automation for all municipalities dealing with rapid expansion or aging infrastructure.”
“Aggregating and analyzing data from the field will offer real-time insights into network status and will increase revenues.”
Amir Peleg, TaKaDu’s Founder & CEO added:
“By converting raw data into knowledge, we can help SAWACO reduce hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of non-revenue water lost per day while significantly improving its operational efficiency.”
