Water transmission and distribution

On average up to 25-30% of a utility’s water is lost in the network to leakage and other types of non-revenue water, according to the World Bank.

These losses cost water companies vast amounts of money, not only in lost revenues but in the cost of treating and pumping water that leaks into the ground.

These systems are often characterized by highly distributed and remote locations that require sophisticated control and monitoring solutions.

SCADA, optimization and leakage detection solutions as well as water measurement products that measure flow, temperature, pressure, level and other variables are cornerstones of ABB’s water expertise and offering for water transmission systems and water distribution networks.
