The Barcelona water network is managed by Sociedad General de Aguas de Barcelona (SGAB), the water company of Barcelona. SGAB not only supplies water to Barcelona city but also to the metropolitan area, with a population of approx. 3 million. Since 1976, the network has a centralized tele-control system, organized in a two-level architecture.The expected outcome of the Barcelona pilot is the real-time implementation of the integrated EFFINET software in connection with the Barcelona SCADA and the specific testing of the operational control and demand forecasting/management functionalities in a selected pilot area of the Barcelona network.
The Water Board of Limassol (WBL) supplies water to approximately 85.000 properties serving a population of approximately 170.000, through approximately 1.000 kilometers of water mains. Most of the population served live in urban areas.The expected output of the Limassol pilot is the real-time implementation of the integrated EFFINET software in connection with the Limassol SCADA system and the specific testing of the real-time monitoring functionalities in a selected pilot DMA of the Limassol network. The demonstrator will implement leak detection and location, as well as chlorine concentration surveillance.The benefit of testing the integrated system at different levels in different cities is, being able to validate that the integrated system works when a part of the chain is implemented. Pilots will be testing modularity and adaptation of the system in different cities of different sizes and different levels of technology.
