Surat Municipal Corporation partners with ABB India

18 January 2021

Surat Municipal Corporation has partnered with ABB India to roll out next-generation technology and support its vision of delivering continuous water supply across the city of Surat with the 24/7 Water Supply Scheme. Surat faces significant water demand from industrial sectors, with clusters of textile units consuming more than 450 million liters per day. The city is addressing the critical issue of optimum water usage across domestic, commercial, and industrial consumption. 

A digitally powered system boosted by safe and secure electrical distribution equipment from ABB India enables SMC to sustainably optimize the distribution of a critical natural resource like water across the city. A stable power supply also prevents water waste by identifying leaks through effective monitoring, while also supporting the supply of clean and uninterrupted water to one million residents across a 38 sq km area.

To boost the existing and conventional infrastructure, ABB has also provided the municipal corporation with facilities like a Water Distribution Station, Elevated Storage Reservoir, Rising mainline, and distribution network line along with a remotely installed SCADA system to provide a comprehensive view of all the data assets.
