WATER SUPPLY AND SANITATION COMPANIES

The water supply and sanitation sector in Chile consists mainly of concessionary companies that provide the services of drinking water production and distribution and blackwater collection and disposal, all regulated and monitored by the Superintendencia de Servicios Sanitarios (Department of Public Household Services - SISS).

At Aqualogy, we work with water supply and sanitation companies to meet the challenge of optimising and controlling each of the stages of the complete water cycle, as well as boosting innovation and collaboration initiatives, with a view to sector sustainability.

We apply the experience acquired in the management of 2,000 installations worldwide to areas such as supply and logistics, measurement and quality of water resources, optimization of infrastructures, environmental impact and image management and commercial water cycle management.

Aware of the sector's needs, Aqualogy has developed a series of solutions and technologies adapted to the water supply and sanitation sector, the result of our extensive experience and knowledge acquired over the years.

Areas of action:

  • Water infrastructure design, building and operation
  • Drinking Water Treatment / Wastewater Treatment / Desalination
  • Drinking water, sewerage system and rainwater networks
  • Water infrastructure automation and remote control systems
  • Water quality and environmental control
  • Geographic information systems (GIS)

Guaranteeing optimum water quality, supply continuity, compliance with local regulations and demand management are just some of the challenges facing our industry.

SAN SEBASTIÁN COMMITS TO AQUALOGY’S ADVANCED SEWERAGE NETWORK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Innovation, occupational health and safety and advanced technology are some of the aspects that enhance the values of the service Aqualogy is providing in San Sebastián, where it has been responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of the city’s sewerage network since 1 June 2013.

Aqualogy contributes ‘intelligence and technology’ to the maintenance of San Sebastián’s sewerage network, which covers some 786 kilometres and includes 31,600 shafts and manholes and 28,000 drains.

The Galia method, which features innovative and advanced sewerage cleaning management, is a tool that offers high performance, respect for the environment and continuous water recycling.

 

 

AQUALOGY MANAGES AND MAINTAINS ZARAGOZA'S SEWERAGE NETWORK

AQUALOGY MANAGES AND MAINTAINS ZARAGOZA'S SEWERAGE NETWORK

Aqualogy is responsible for the management of Zaragoza’s sewerage network cleaning, maintenance and inspection services. It centres on the technological improvement of the service through the implementation of advanced cleaning management tools such as Galia, WiCast and GISAgua, as well as improving the cleaning and inspection equipment, with a sustainable and technologically advanced approach.

The network covers some 1,134 kilometres and serves a population of 650,000 inhabitants. In addition to network cleaning, maintenance and inspection tasks, Aqualogy is responsible for updating and maintaining GISAgua.

The project also covers the calibration and application of a mathematic model, a technology that proposes improvements and anticipates the behaviour of the network.

Ecociudad Zaragoza, a sewerage and wastewater treatment company wholly owned by the city, has entrusted the management of this service to Aqualogy, Socamex and Ideser for a period of two years.

With this action, Aqualogy is now the leader in the maintenance and operation of sewerage networks in Spain, serving some 9.3 million people.

WATER COMPANY REVENUE MANAGEMENT

Aqualogy provides its customers with services and technologies to guarantee billing of all the revenue produced in the water cycle, reduce operating costs associated with the commercial cycle (contracting, measuring, reading, billing, collection and management of non-payments) and facilitate technological renewal.

To do this, it offers the following solutions:

  • Smart metering: this solution is valid for the main meter brands.
  • AquaCIS: sales management software.
  • Partial or total outsourcing of the commercial water cycle: contracting, census, reading, billing, collection, non-payment and customer care.
  • AQUAPRED: service to increase efficiency in fraud detection.
  • SICAM+: comprehensive measuring management.

MANAGEMENT OF WASTEWATER, DESALINATION AND DRINKING WATER TREATMENT PLANTS

Aqualogy’s plant operation activities are undertaken with the aim of optimising the different processes by applying the latest technologies, minimising energy consumption, ensuring treatment performance levels and carrying out analytical controls of water quality, in addition to ensuring correct environmental management of sludge, waste, brine and by-products generated in the treatment processes.

The requirements for the energy or agricultural recovery of sludge mean that end users demand an easily manageable, storable and innocuous product. Accordingly, it is necessary to perform more comprehensive sludge treatments. These treatments are carried out in units and with complex industrial processes, the management of which requires a high degree of specialisation. Aqualogy has become a specialist in the operation and maintenance of these treatment platforms.

ENGINEERING

  • Hydraulic engineering: consultancy in hydraulic engineering.
  • Energy efficiency: integrated service for different energy-related areas: energy audits, comprehensive energy management, energy efficiency projects, and the design, project development and construction of renewable energy installations.
  • Control systems: the Aqualogy solution covers all phases and needs of the project from consultancy and advice to after-sales service, covering supply, installation and commissioning.
  • Dynamic micro-sectorisation: reduction in the duration of all leaks by early detection through constant, localised monitoring of the entire network.
  • Hydrogeology and groundwater catchment: full range of activities related to aquifers and groundwater.

EFFICIENCY IN WATER NETWORKS

To achieve optimal levels both in the technical performance of the network and in non-revenue water (NRW), it is necessary to implement technologies in network analysis, rehabilitation work and leak detection and additional control mechanisms. Implementation projects must be carried out sequentially with a clear methodology to achieve the desired results.

The required actions vary, depending on the interim results during the different phases. The information analysis and technical proposals are supported by field experience and compiled historical information and, in advanced phases, need to be complemented by the installation of specific equipment. Aqualogy is the ideal partner for undertaking a project of these characteristics, thanks to both its capability and experience.

DRAINAGE AND SEWERAGE NETWORKS

In this area Aqualogy has developed a methodological and technological proposal called Galia (advanced sewerage network cleaning and maintenance).The key lies in having maximum knowledge of the status of the network in order to determine its actual needs. Our Galia methodology enables the determination of where, when and how often cleaning is necessary. We prefer to act where necessary and increase frequency at the hot spots where action is required. In addition, Galia makes it easier to decide on the most appropriate resources for each requirement, thus obtaining results of the highest quality and a functional guarantee.
