Skanderborg, Denmark, and Yehud, Israel (PRWEB) October 28, 2016
Kamstrup, a world-leading supplier of intelligent energy and water metering solutions, and TaKaDu, a global leader in integrated event management solutions for the water industry, have today announced a strategic partnership to offer an intelligent water management solution to water utilities worldwide.
The joint offering combines Kamstrup’s intelligent water meters and sensors collecting real-time data from the distribution network, and TaKaDu’s cloud-based software that enables utilities to manage the full life-cycle of network events, such as faulty assets, leaks, bursts, water pressure issues, water quality, operational faults and more. Easy to implement, the combined solution enables improved network efficiency and asset management, with energy and cost savings.
Jesper Kjelds, Senior Vice President of Heat/Cooling/Water Systems at Kamstrup, said, “There is so much valuable information in the real-time data our meters and sensors collect from the distribution network. We want to ensure that our customers have access to and are trained to use the right tools that will enable them to turn data into valuable and actionable information that in turn assists the utility in reducing costs and providing improved services to their customers. With the TaKaDu cooperation, we ensure seamless integration between the intelligent water solutions from Kamstrup and TaKaDu’s advanced event management and analytics.”
Amir Peleg, TaKaDu’s Founder & CEO, said, “The two data-driven solutions are truly complementary, offering multiple benefits to our joint customers. With Kamstrup’s intelligent water network solutions, TaKaDu’s event management transforms data to knowledge, detecting and managing any significant incident in the network. The utility can identify anomalies early on, send out field teams if needed, and prevent potential incidents causing long-term damage.”
Kamstrup’s intelligent water network solutions combine the newest ultrasonic technology with remote reading, advanced pressure, leakage surveillance and high end-user involvement. The company’s product portfolio covers the water utility’s core tasks while securing a high level of control, efficiency and flexibility.
Based on big data analytics, TaKaDu provides all the knowledge and information about each event, for example, the time it started, magnitude, priority, location, owner, related comments, connectivity to other operational systems (e.g. work order management) and more. The system helps utilities detect problems (events) early, reduce water loss, shorten repair cycles and improve customer service. The technology offers in-depth visibility and quick insights into every type of event, enabling smarter decision-making.
