SAWACO to deploy TaKaDu and ABB water management solution at Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam

CTBR Staff Writer Published 25 January 2018

Saigon Water Supply (SAWACO) is deploying ABB’s digital control and monitoring technologies together with TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management Solution as part of its efforts to restore water distribution network in Ho Chi Minh City.

For the project, ABB’s Ability Symphony Plus SCADA will be used for monitoring and controlling the entire water distribution system and will integrate with the Event Management Solution of TaKaDu.

TaKaDu's solution will detect, analyze and manage network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues and operational failures.

The aim of the project is to increase efficiency, reduce water leakage and to prevent disruptions as well as to ensure that everyone has access to clean water in the city known as Vietnam’s economic powerhouse.

It is estimated that last year, the city lost nearly 30% of its potable water due to leakages and damaged pipes.

SAWACO expects that ABB and TaKaDu’s solutions will enable it to monitor network conditions digitally through several data collection points such as sensors and meters, and offers actionable insights that can help in reducing non-revenue water.

By using the solution, SAWACO will also be able to increase the amount of water that is delivered to the city’s industries and its eight million residents. As per an estimate, the water company will hit 50 Mio m³/year of water savings, equivalent to 20,000 Olympic-size swimming pools, while production cost savings could be higher than 10 MUSD a year.

ABB’s power generation & water business managing director Kevin Kosisko said: “Water projects like Ho Chi Minh City’s show the full potential of advanced automation for all municipalities dealing with rapid expansion or aging infrastructure.

“Aggregating and analyzing data from the field will offer real-time insights into network status and will increase revenues.”

TaKaDu founder & CEO Amir Peleg said: “We’re excited to partner with ABB on this project in one of Asia’s most dynamic countries.

“By converting raw data into knowledge, we can help SAWACO reduce hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of non-revenue water lost per day while significantly improving its operational efficiency.”
