Stakeholders

Stakeholders

  • Public
  • Irrigation companies
  • Wastewater processing companies
  • Mobile recycling facilities
  • Government

Deployment/Implementation

  • Developing countries losses 45m cubic metres are lost everyday
  • Without smart monitoring technology it hard to attracted investment for treatment plants, pumping stations because of the loss water production.
  • With smart monitoring technology, it can ensure investors that it will minimize the loss water production
  • Pressure and acoustic sensors that are connected to wirelessly to a cloud base monitoring can help companies to locate the leaks much faster to resolve the issue.
