Telemetry and Remote Control for Panamanian Aqueducts

The Institute of Aqueducts and Sewage Systems plans to build a monitoring and control center and install a telemetry and remote control system for its water lines.

Monday, October 28, 2013 reports: The head of the entity, Abdiel Cano, explained that this system will allow the Idaan to detect any damage occuring on the network (valves, piping, etc.) and fix it, and will reduce the high pressures on the lines during the night, which sometimes results in pipes breaking. "

The new system will be operational 24 hours a day. "It is an ambitious plan which will take several years to complete," said Cano.

In addition to the work being carried out with international entities and which totals $230 million, so far in 2013 the Idaan has invested $60 million in upgrading and constructing water lines.
