The Rural Water Association of Bradano e Metaponto required a complete solution to save water, energy, and time. The system needed to be cost effective, comprehensive, flexible, and scalable for round-the-clock control and monitoring of the regional authorities responsible for rural water distribution and irrigation.
The regional consortium wanted a centralized remote control center and complete system access from designated control points, with automated, accurate, and efficient irrigation suitable for diverse crop and field types, including vineyards, fruit orchards, and vegetable farms.
The Rural Water Association looked for a user-friendly system, with advanced and reliable communications for sending targeted alerts, tracking potential water leakage throughout the system, and generating summary reports of the water distribution activity on demand.
- The control center, located at the San Giulano Dam, was configured to give authorized users remote monitoring and control of irrigation processes, pump stations, network communications, and system diagnostics.
- Our ICC PRO software provided real-time information on reservoir water level, flow values, water pressure, and other mission-critical data — and to generate reports. Even in the case of infrastructure disruptions, IRRInet’s redundant communication paths ensured increased reliability and system continuity.
- The system’s unique radio communications protocol ensured full control of the water management system throughout the hills and valleys that typify the Bradano region.
The platform gave the customer total system control along with the possibility to expand and modify in order to meet the changing needs of the region.
