Overcoming challenges for better water control.
Access to our most precious resource is declining around the world. And the pressure to conserve it is building. By 2025, it’s estimated that 66% of the world’s population could suffer from water shortages, threatening human life and livelihood around the world. 20% of the global freshwater supply has been diminished by drought and climate change. Up to 34% of water supplied globally is lost due to leakages or unmetered diversion. And cyber-attacks on water utilities are up by 60%, putting at risk the ability to provide one of our most critical resources. To create a future where everyone has the water they need, these challenges have to be addressed now. In a world where every drop is precious, Motorola Solutions’ Industrial Internet of Things is helping Water and Wastewater utilities drive more intelligent production and greater reliability.
SCADA intelligent edge devices identify abnormalities—like excessive pressure, equipment failure and leaks–and automatically lower temperature, pressure or flow to prevent breakdowns, limit damage to critical infrastructure and minimize water loss. These solutions can also be customized for a variety of applications that improve operations. Sensors capable of machine-to-machine communication monitor lakes, aquifers and reservoirs, as well as water treatment facilities, to ensure optimal water levels and to raise alarms when pollutant levels rise. Smart pumps automatically adjust based on water quality, energy costs and reservoir volumes, turning on boosters when needed and reducing operation when possible to lower energy bills and extend equipment life. And data from everywhere—shared across a secure, resilient and expandable network of networks—powers analytics that operators can use to optimize workflows and resolve potential problems, like pipe bursts or sewer blockages, before they happen. It’s a whole new way of operating, where facilities can be continuously monitored
Samanga Solutions Limited has partnered with Motorola Solutions to bring you IIOT.
Motorola's Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT) solutions give your organization the power it needs to be more productive and the insight to help reduce the risk of safety incidents. This helps you better safeguard your personnel and communities, unlock intelligence across your operations and extend the life of your assets while it optimizes efficiencies across your operations - all with the narrow and broadband communications networks you already have in place.
