COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Danish pump giant Grundfos has partnered with Israeli company TaKaDu to tap into the growing smart water management market.
The two companies are running a joint pilot project at Danish water utility Frederikshavn Forsyning where high-tech solutions are employed and tested in a "live" environment.
It is hoped that the partnership will be able to help utilities to fulfil new operational targets for saving energy and water, as well as managing water network assets in the most economical way.
The partnership will leverage TaKaDu’s experience of using cloud-based advanced software to detect anomalies in a utility’s water supply, together with Grundfos’s work on addressing demand driven distribution.
Kenth Hvid Nielsen, group vice president, global water utility, Grundfos said that the partnership “accelerates our efforts in the digitalisation journey, and allows us to speed up the process of providing our customers with best-in-class, data driven solutions”.
Amir Peleg, founder and CEO of TaKaDu, said: "We are very excited to partner with Grundfos in the global water market, and expand our comprehensive event management solution to new dimensions of data, related to energy and network operations. Data analytics yields a wide spectrum of benefits, and we are confident that this partnership will boost efficiency of both water and energy."
