Pioneering Real-Time Event Detection Solution Presented at SIWW 2016

s::can (Austria) presented this week in Singapore a worldwide pioneering system to monitor water quality in urban supply networks in real time. s::can has been selected by the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) to present this project to other companies and public authorities from all over the world. This event, held every two years, is part of the Singapore government program to develop the water industry sector, and gathers together international players in the field to share experiences and best practices, discover the latest technology trends and to close business opportunities. 

The s::can system controls in real time water quality via the installation of sensors placed at different points along the supply network, monitoring up to 10 parameters. In addition to determining the most standard parameters, such as chlorine and pH, it also monitors others, thanks to the spectro::lyser - an optical sensor measures color, turbidity, total and dissolved organic carbon and nitrates. Data is then sent out continuously and automatically from a terminal processing all the information and warns the water supplier of possible incidents –such as the presence of compounds not usually found in water, or a pollutant, for example – both via warnings to the control centre or to a mobile phone. 

According to Dr. Jordi Raich, Managing Director s::can Iberia, "it is a pioneering project at an international level and we have been selected to give a presentation at the Singapore International Water Week, which is not that easy. We are very satisfied; we know we will be heard by worldwide leading water sector companies, public authorities and representatives of cities seeking solutions like ours." So far, Raich said, "to analyse the quality of water, supply management companies had to take water samples, send them to a laboratory and analyse them. With this system, however, we change to a preventive management system".
