SOUTHAMPTON, UK -The Water Supplies Department (WSD) of Hong Kong has approved a new data logging system from British company i2O to measure the performance of its water supply network.

WSD is responsible for providing potable water to more than seven million people living across the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The organisation will deploy dNet, a new data logging system from i2O, as part of a hydraulic modelling project with consultants Black & Veatch and Innopipe Engineering Co Ltd.

As part of the contract, loggers will be deployed throughout the Kowloon region of Hong Kong to record and transmit detailed water network performance data relating to water demand, flow and pressure.

Some i2O loggers are also being deployed permanently in the Kowloon region of WSD’s network.

Joel Hagan, CEO of i2O Water, said: “Providing an adequate water supply for Hong Kong has always been difficult because there are no natural lakes, rivers or substantial underground water sources. With greater demand for water from population growth and expanding commercial activities, WSD, like many utilities around the world, has recognised that improving the smart capabilities of its network is crucial. i2O’s dNet system has been developed to provide rapid, accurate data to water utilities that can be used to improve network performance.”
