Aqualogy deploys its Idroloc system in Casablanca (Morocco)
16 July 2013
After Colorado (USA) and Oran (Algeria), Aqualogy is now deploying its Idroloc system, centred on leak location using helium as a tracer gas, in the drinking water supply network of Casablanca (Morocco), managed by the public utility operator Lydec.
The work in this country focused on locating leaks in an 800-millimetre diameter pipe with a length of 4 kilometres. The route of this pipeline was especially complicated as it presented numerous branches with diameters of up to 300 millimetres. However, Idroloc’s operating principle meant that it was not necessary to interrupt the network supply service during the work.
This system, which makes it possible to find leaks where other invasive detection methods do not obtain results, is also especially suitable for large diameters such as the case of the network managed by Lydec.
The company Lydec manages the distribution of water, electricity, lighting, wastewater and rain water in the Greater Casablanca area (Morocco), which has a population of 5,000,000 inhabitants and almost 1,000,000 clients distributed in the urban areas of Casablanca, Mohammedia and Aïn Harrouda.
