Esval-Aguas del Valle selects i2O’s technology to monitor water supply network

Chile’s water utility Esval-Aguas del Valle has chosen UK-based i2O to help measure and monitor the performance of its water supply network in Valparaiso and Coquimbo regions.

Under the deal, i2O, along with its Chilean partner Glemans will work closely with Esval-Aguas del Valle to install the dNet solution in a broad extension across the network.

By deploying the solution, Esval-Aguas aims to get more visibility on network performance and will provide improved level to its customers.

Esval-Aguas del Valle network development department deputy manager head Gonzalo Murillo said: “Esval needs accurate information about the pressure on its water network so that it can improve the supply to customers and reduce leakage and the frequency of bursts. 

“i2O’s dNet solution offer us accurate and complete data that we can rely upon for decision-making.”

Once operational, the entire project will generate reports for Chilean regulator SISS.

The data to be produced from the project will be available and accessible to Esval-Aguas del Valle from i2O’s dNet Enterprise data platform.

i2O CEO Joel Hagan said: “i2O technologies are already being used by more than 125 water companies in 25 countries around the world. We are delighted that Esval-Aguas del Valle has selected i2O’s new dNet solution to collect accurate and reliable data on its network.

“Esval-Aguas del Valle, like many utilities around the world, faces increasing demand for water and has recognised that improving the smart capabilities of its network is crucial. 

“We have specifically developed the dNet solution to provide water utilities with the ability to rapidly collect data that can be used to help improve the overall performance of its network.”

In January this year, i2O signed a memorandum of understanding with UK Export Finance to help Iran’s water project.
