Hyderabad: IoT and LoRaWaN crucial in cutting cost of water supply 19.10.2019
Hyderabad: Metropolitan Water Board managing director, M. Dana Kishore, said Internet of Things (IoT) and LoRaWaN (Long Range Wide Area Network) could be crucial in reducing the cost of water supply. He said that in India, non-revenue water (NRW), water that is deemed lost before it reaches a customer due to leaks, theft or inaccuracies, varies between 30 per cent and 50 per cent. "At HMWS&SB, this figure is 37 per cent, In countries such as Israel and Singapore, this figure could be as low as five per cent," he said. Mr Kishore said low-cost, long range and long-term technological solutions were important in the context of water management. "To reduce the NRW to five per cent, we have to spend more than Rs 5,000 crore. There are technologies that can help us do this, but they are expensive," he said. He said that if a company could design a sensor that allowed the board to monitor manholes from a central room, it would be of great help. "This sensor has to be cheap ...

THOOTHUKUDI: The State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Ltd., (SIPCOT) has been planning to create its own water source for industrial units within its industrial parks, which is now being supplied by the Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage (TWAD) board. "Works are on to prepare a water security plan engaging IIT, Chennai," said J Kumaraguruparan, managing director of SIPCOT. The plan is aimed at making all 19 SIPCOT run industrial parks in the state, self-sufficient in water by completely avoiding getting water from TWAD board. This is expected to bring down the pressure on drinking water supply by the TWAD board, said the SIPCOT MD, who also added that around 150 major and minor tanks within SIPCOT land would be renovated to hold rain water. Establishing desalination plants to ensure soft water supply to the industrial parks, SIPCOT has been exploring possibilities of using recycled sewage water for industrial purposes. Responding to the growing public resentment against ...
