Actility Benelux wins Vlakwa demonstration project around smart water management

The proposed solution is based on Actility’s collaboration with Vlakwa, De Watergroep, Vito, Vub & Snaptonic.

“Beyond the scope of Flanders, this demonstration project will lead to the drastic decline in the cost of drinking water and industrial water monitoring infrastructures through the use of ThingPark Wireless and the Lora technology. The acquired expertise can also be leveraged internationally to drastically reduce the drinking water loss in tanks or pipes, which are estimated at 20-30% worldwide. The drought, caused by global climate change will lead to increased pressure on these water resources. This is one of the biggest problems of global warming,” said Ivo Van Vaerenbergh, Vice-President of Actility Benelux.
