City Flood Control Systems Get a Powerful IoT Solution

Location: Middle East
Solution Partner: ETEK

City flood prevention is mainly to prevent the problems of heavy rain. The function of the pump station needs to be combined with the water forecasting system for scheduling the tasks. Even in dry arid countries in the Middle East, storm water management is an essential tool. The local authority in Al Ain, in the UAE started installing advanced storm water management systems in 2012. The scope of this project was to improve and upgrade the operation, maintenance of storm water networks and pumping stations in the UAE. This was designed as a two phase project…. more
