EMASA has deployed new technologies to support its vital services in Málaga
(Norwich, UK, 06/12/2018)
One of the first Spanish cities to have a company for the management of the water supply system in the 19th century, Málaga remains at the forefront of environmental innovation. A leader in smart metering in the Spanish water sector, EMASA has implemented over 100 electronic meters installed in Málaga in its bid to provide essential services to its customers.
Technology is reshaping industries aplenty, and the utilities sector is no exception. Whilst the European Water Charter has stated that ‘there is no life without water. It is a treasure indispensable to all human activity,’ Chief Information Officer, Pedro Galdon is keen to stress the potential of new technologies, where the company will gain the ability to analyse big data and provide solutions to tackle global water shortages.
“We are now starting to use drones for inspection tasks, where it is difficult for workers to reach or there is a high level of risk. I think in the near future all dangerous jobs will be undertaken by a robot or drone,” he says.
Through the use of its support platform, Virtual Office, customers have also gained the ability to carry out a number of processes 24 hours a day. It is also a key project which the company is presently working to develop further.
“For me, it is one of the most important things we can do for our customers. In 2019, we are aiming to develop Virtual Office, which will become our flagship technology, he adds.” All of its operations will be further bolstered by the EMASA’s Laboratory operations, which adhere to all international standards.
