Share Article

Water loss reduction and network management optimization have becoming a priority due to Chile’s seven-year drought.

TaKaDu, a global leader in Integrated Event Management solutions for the water industry, announced today that Essbio, the largest water utility in Chile’s regions outside the capital, based in Concepción city and providing water services to 2.5 million citizens, has chosen TaKaDu’s Event Management solution to help them improve their water network management and save water resources. Essbio’s goal is to use the TaKaDu solution in selected regions, covering a 2,400 km net pipeline, and then explore extending it gradually across its whole concession of over 10.000 km. The deal is in cooperation with G&A Consultores S. A., the local partner of TaKaDu in Chile.

Improving water efficiency is a number one priority in Chile, due to the growing effects of global climate change, which include significant reductions in rainfall and mountain winter snow accumulation.

Mr. Gonzalo Reyes, Essbio’s Planning & Engineering Director, said, “With this TaKaDu program, we are hoping to have online information about the behavior of our drinking water network, which will allow us to reduce reaction time to solve leakage problems, improve service and reduce water loss."

Based on big data analytics, TaKaDu's IoT cloud-based solution enables water utilities to manage the full life-cycle of all their network events (incidents), such as faulty assets, leaks, bursts, water pressure issues, water quality, operational faults and more. Using raw data from multiple sources, TaKaDu provides information about each event, helping utilities detect events early, reduce water loss, shorten repair cycles and improve customer service.

Amir Peleg, TaKaDu’s Founder & CEO, said, “We’ve seen growing demand in Latin America for innovative water solutions. Like many countries around the world, water is a precious commodity in Chile and solutions, such as ours, have an important role to play in improving water management. We’re proud to add a leading utility like Essbio to our global customer base.”

Dr. Luis Gurovich, G&A Consultores S. A.’s Water Resources Director, expressed the company commitment to actively integrate its professional capabilities and professional human resources to Essbio’s new technological endeavor based on TaKaDu technology, focused on boosting water use efficiency indicators and implementing the multiple capabilities of IoT, big data and smart water management for Essbio and its customers.
