The Addis Ababa Water and Sewerage Authority (AAWSA), which is responsible for the water supply and wastewater treatment systems that serve the Ethiopian capital city of Addis Ababa, has placed an order for an integrated water facility monitoring and management system with Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, a leading provider of industrial automation and test and measurement solutions. According to the press release, the company will help maintain reliable access to water by enhancing the operation of the city’s water delivery infrastructure.
The company press release reads, “One of the largest and fastest-growing cities in Africa, Addis Ababa is experiencing water shortages due to the inability of the water supply system to keep up with demand. As such, a variety of water initiatives have been under consideration at the state level to benefit society and foster economic growth.”
In this project, Yokogawa said it will upgrade several existing systems and supply new systems for monitoring reservoirs, pumping stations, water treatment plants, transmission and distribution pipes, and related facilities. It will also deliver a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for the integrated monitoring of all water supply facilities. The project is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2025, and will include installation, training programs, and the provision of several years of after-sales support services. Yokogawa’s cutting-edge technology will enable the real-time visualization of the status of the water supply system in Addis Ababa and will help to ensure the proper management and operation of facilities so that water can be supplied effectively over a wide area.
Kunimasa Shigeno, president and CEO of Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, says, “Water supply systems play an essential role in industry or society, and it is important to make effective use of limited water resources. In close cooperation with AAWSA, we will fully utilize Yokogawa’s technology and know-how to ensure a stable supply of water for the people of Ethiopia.”
