ABB and TaKaDu to provide water management solution to Ho Chi Minh City water distribution network

January 24, 2018 - ABB and TaKaDu are providing a water management solution designed to boost efficiency and reduce water leakage in Ho Chi Minh City.
Saigon Water Supply Corporation (SAWACO) is deploying ABB’s digital control and monitoring technologies together with TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management Solution as part of its restoration of Ho Chi Minh City’s water distribution network.

The ABB SCADA solution - ABB Ability Symphony Plus - will monitor and control the entire water distribution system and integrate TaKaDu’s Event Management Solution, which detects, analyzes and manages network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues and operational failures.

This massive urban project aims to increase efficiency, reduce water leakage, prevent disruptions and ensure everyone has access to clean water in Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam’s economic powerhouse. Last year, Ho Chi Minh City lost nearly 30 percent of its potable water to leaking and damaged pipes.

ABB’s and TaKaDu’s complementary solutions will enable SAWACO to monitor the network conditions digitally though multiple data collection points, such as sensors and meters, and offer actionable insights to reduce non-revenue water. SAWACO will then be able to increase the amount of water delivered to the city’s industries and eight million residents. At a first estimate, SAWACO 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 is a provider of integrated power and automation solutions with experience in partnering with the energy and water industries.
