Prolagos Designs Water Distribution System Delivering Energy Savings And Revenue Gains

Prolagos, a subsidiary of Aegea Group, is responsible for providing water and sewerage services to five municipalities in Região dos Lagos, Rio de Janeiro. Prolagos manages a total water network encompassing 2,000 kilometers of distribution pipelines and accommodates for variable seasonal fluctuations ranging from 400,000 to almost 2 million inhabitants at the peak of the tourist season. The region also lacks fresh water resources as all the surrounding lakes contain hypersaline water, which is unfit for human consumption. Water is distributed from a spring 70 kilometers away, and four pump stations were required to provide water to the inhabitants, but the current system had not been performing optimally.
