New technologies has allowed the council and Entemanser to install remote metres which will allow for improved management of supply and problem-solving
The Adeje council has published details of a new telematic meter reading system which will allow for remote readings of individual water meters of clients of the local water service. Council representatives Carmen Rosa Gonzalez and Esther Rivero Vargas went to see the system in operation in the control centre of the town’s system management accompanied by Emilio Fernández from Aqualia, and Daniel Blanco and head of services for Entemanser for Adeje, Pedro Antonio Gómez.
There has been a pilot project phase in operation in El Puertito which has allowed the company help clients control consumption, improve the service, detect leaks, and save on energy costs. There is no additional cost to the client, 50 of whom are already seeing the benefits.
The next phase will probably see the new meters installed in El Galeón or Armeñime later on this year. Major consumers such as hotels and complexes will also see the new system installed over time, with advanced options and maximum precision. The new service will mean, said Pedro Antonio Gómez, “that we can meet the needs of consumers 365 days a year”. They hope to be using the new system to control 55% of water usage.
The objective is also to gather more information from and about water users, which will in turn assist in improving the service, without having to go to each meter, “eliminating potential human error as well”, commented Daniel Blanco. The new technology installed will allow clients see their hourly water consumption levels, receive alerts if there are leaks, or if someone if illegally trying to access their water network. Via the Aqualia Contact they will be able to receive a daily usage update.
