Acuacar will use i2O’s iNet Network Analytics software in Cartagena, Colombia
Acuacar is the water company of Cartagena de Indias, probably Colombia’s most famous and most visited city. Over the last twenty years, Acuacar has transformed water services that underpin the city’s success, with clean water now available to 100% of the city’s 1 million population and its 2.5 million visitors a year.
i2O Water is pleased to announce that Acuacar is extending the services provided by i2O to include its iNet Network Analytics software. iNet combines datasets to derive as much insight from that data as possible to detect and diagnose network issues earlier, maintain assets in a more timely and cost-effective way based on their condition, and identify opportunities to improve network performance. It does so in a secure and reliable way.
Director of Projects of Acuacar, Jorge Luque said: ‘We have used i2O solutions for a long time and rely on them to help us instrument and optimise pressure in our networks. Being able to detect transients and events using the permanently deployed pressure and flow logging devices already installed, without the need for specialist equipment, will help us identify and diagnose network issues more quickly and cost-effectively, reducing leakage and improving the service we provide to the citys inhabitants and tourists.’
Joel Hagan, CEO at i2O commented: ‘I’m delighted that Jorge and his team will be able to do more to address their challenges with iNet. Acuacar is an innovator in Colombia and in the Suez group with its use of state of the art technology. I highly recommend Cartagena as a place to visit after lockdown with its sunshine, sand, sea, and reliable supply of clean drinking water!’
