TaKaDu, a global leader in Integrated Event Management solutions for the water industry, announced today that the national water company of Taiwan, Taiwan Water Corporation (TWC), has chosen TaKaDu’s Event Management solution to help them improve their water network management and save water resources. TWC goal is to pilot the TaKaDu software in selected regions, total length of 3000km pipeline, and then explore extending it gradually across Taiwan.

Water efficiency is a number one priority in Taiwan because of the challenging environment and climate. Despite Taiwan’s high annual rainfall, only about 20% of the rain can be used as a water resource due to its mountainous terrain, population strips and other factors.

TaKaDu’s event management solution enables us to manage every type of event happening in our network so that we can respond quickly to problem areas and bring them under control efficiently and optimise our operational resources”.

The deal with TWC is an important milestone for us, representing our first customer in the Asia, and we are confident that it will make a real difference to TWC’s operational efficiency and lead to a long-term win-win relationship,” said Amir Peleg, Founder & CEO, TaKaDu.
