Israeli water data firm expands presence in Latin America

Israel: Israeli company TaKaDu which provides GIS-based water network monitoring services announced its expansion in the Latin American market.  The company will collaborate with regional distributors: Gerentec Engenharia in Brazil, BTP Medidores in Colombia and Atacama Water & Technology (AWT) in Chile. The selected local partners have proven track records of delivering solutions and are dedicated to bringing the best technologies to water utilities in their regional markets.
 
Water network monitoring helps water utilities worldwide take control of their networks by giving them real-time knowledge and alerts about inefficiencies and water loss in addition to other problems in their water distribution infrastructure. The TaKaDu solution uses existing meter and sensor readings and advanced algorithms to detect, accurately identify and report network events, such as leaks, bursts and other faults. TaKaDu is using the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model enabling quick set-up and ease of use, requiring no changes to existing equipment or any upfront investment. As water loss is a serious concern in Latin America, water companies are adopting innovative technologies such as the TaKaDu water network monitoring solution in order to improve network performance. TaKaDu uses multiple sources of raw data: online sensor data (flow and pressure), network operations data, network structure (GIS) and external data.
 
“Utilities in Latin America consider water loss and network inefficiencies their highest priority”, said Eddy Segal, TaKaDu’s Business Director for LATAM. “Water companies in Colombia, Brazil and Chile, as well as other parts of the continent, are investing in solutions to address these problems, and our local partners can help the utilities with their water loss reduction efforts using TaKaDu’s advanced online service”.
 
According to BTP Medidores General Manager Alberto Corredor, “BTP has been focusing on deploying meters and sensors in many utilities in Colombia, through our partnership with Sensus. TaKaDu takes the data from existing meters and turns it into network insight, taking utilities to a higher level of network awareness”.
