Jyväskylä, Finland -Finland’s Jyväskylä Energy Group, Central Finland’s largest city’s water utility, has turned to TaKaDu to increase the visibility of its water network.

As part of a three-year contract, TaKaDu’s central event management solution will be deployed in the Finnish water utility to improve network efficiency and customer service.

The project is being overseen and implemented by Pisara, Jyväskylä Energy’s smart water solutions unit.

With Finland’s extreme weather conditions and high service standards, the utility aims to improve its operational efficiency, save energy and water, and reduce repair costs by detecting, analysing and managing potential events and incidents, such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets and other anomalies.

This will give field teams early notice of developing events and a far greater knowledge of the type and urgency of the problems they need to fix before venturing out.

Pasi Jalonen, Jyväskylä Energy’s executive vice president, said: “We see long-term value by increasing the visibility of our water network. TaKaDu’s central management platform will enable us to manage incidents in one place, prioritise resources, speed up repair cycles and improve our customer service. We want to achieve better control over the water network and to understand more precisely where to put our renovation funds”.

This is TaKaDu’s first customer in Finland, with the company now working in a total of 13 countries globally.
