Dutch-based telemetry provider Datawatt announced that its Water Operators Partnership (WOP) project in Dhaka, Bangladesh will be continued.
Datawatt's local representative, Dhaka company Optimal Track, has been appointed for the further rollout of the webscada Stream system and for adding additional locations for monitoring District Metered Areas (DMAs).
Monitoring of metered districts
The Water Operators Partnership (WOP) project is intitiated in close cooperation with Vitens Evides International who asked Datawatt to implement a SCADA telemetry system for District Metered Areas (DMAs) operated by the municipal water company DWASA.
Last year Datawatt delivered data loggers and a web-based SCADA application to monitor the metered areas of DWASA.
Employees of Datawatt trained the local DWASA-staff to work with the equipment, using the data to optimize the drinking water distribution and to have the right and current information for the optimal use of the infrastructure.
The installed telemetry Scada-system will now be expanded with Stream, the new central system and web portal from Datawatt. Additionally the telemetry network will be expanded to more locations.
Director Roy Gerding of Datawatt (top photo third left): "Bangladesh is a very interesting country to explore. The partnerships are certainly an added value for the realization of the projects."
The WOP project provides an integrated approach for improving the water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH) in the low income areas in the city of Dhaka, where approximately 3.5 million people still live below the poverty line.
Stream is a telemetry database system developed by Datawatt to manage and monitor different locations. The system is easy to use and offers 24/7 online process information.
Besides the standard features, the system can easily be expanded with other (graphic) functions.
The new web portal ensures a worry free management and maintenance systems.
Stream is supported by all modern browsers and is available for smartphone, tablet or IPad. Several authorization levels are available for different users.
