SÃO PAULO, Brazil– AEGEA, one of Brazil’s leading water and sanitation companies, is expanding deployment of the TaKaDu system to a third concessionaire.
TaKaDu’s solution will be implemented at Nascentes do Xingu in Brazil’s Mato Grosso region, following installations at Prolagos, including several municipalities in the Rio de Janeiro State, and Aguas Guariroba in Campo Grande (Capital of Mato Grosso do Sul State).
The solution is being supported locally by Optimale, one of TaKaDu’s long-term partners in Brazil.
AEGEA has reportedly seen multiple benefits since adopting TaKaDu’s technology in 2013, including a “faster response time to leakage, sensor failures and water consumption pattern modification events; increased network visibility; asset management; long-term maintenance plans; and, above all, operational and tactical team integration”.
The automated cloud-based service enables utilities to detect, analyse and manage network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues, operational failures and more.
Marco Aurelio Silva, responsible for R&D at AEGEA, said: “TaKaDu has triggered a cultural change at AEGEA, enabling us to be more proactive when it comes to managing problems in the network and encouraging knowledge sharing between department and external contractors. TaKaDu’s event management has helped us to measure and reduce water loss, shorten repair cycles, detect faulty meters and other malfunctions, and improve customer service.”
Part of the AEGEA Group, Nascentes do Xingu is a Regional Company that manages 29 municipalities, including 24 in Mato Grosso, one in Pará (Amazon State) and four in Rondonia (Amazon State). These concessions serve around 930 thousand inhabitants.
