Israeli company TaKaDu has announced a contract extension for use of its smart water utility integrated event management solution in the area around the Spanish city of Bilbao. The announcement comes soon after the company also secured further success in Australia, after being awarded a contract from Gympie Regional Council in South East Queensland.
According to TaKaDu, the Spanish contract renewal is with Udal Sareak, the subsidiary of Bilbao Bizkaia Water Consortium responsible for managing the water distribution network of 70 municipalities and locations in the Bilbao area. The contract is managed by TaKaDu partner Envirodata, which provides local integration services and platform maintenance. The renewal extends a five year deployment of TaKaDu’s solution.
For the Australian contract, Gympie Regional Council is implementing a major restructuring of its water network, adding automation and new devices and setting up additional district metered areas, in order to improve efficiency and reduce water loss, according to TaKaDu.
The council manages the water supply network throughout its region, which covers almost 7000 square kilometres.
According to TaKaDu, its automated cloud-based service allows utilities to detect, analyse and manage events in its network and incidents such as leaks, bursts, asset faults, operational failures, and telemetry and data issues. Other Australian utilities using the technology include Unitywater, Queensland Urban Utilities, and Gold Coast Water.
