The world is confronting an imminent water crisis, with the UN projecting a 40% global water deficit by 2030. The primary challenge lies in delivering clean water efficiently while minimizing costs and reducing substantial water wastage. Currently, over 45 million cubic meters of water are lost daily due to leakages. Addressing unaccounted for water (UFW) is imperative, especially with the increasing demands from growing populations and expanding industrial sectors like textiles and agriculture. Water utilities face obstacles such as insufficient data, inefficiencies in distribution networks, poor practices, and pipeline losses.
ABB, a pioneer in smart measurement and analytical solutions, is reshaping water treatment technologies to ensure global water resource conservation. Their portfolio includes continuous water analyzers, flowmeters, and digital solutions, aiding water utilities in providing accessible and safe water while minimizing losses. ABB's approach integrates digitalization across the entire water cycle, optimizing processes and enabling preventive and predictive maintenance for sustainable operations.
