Acciona to Roll Out Spain’s First Smart-Water Grid to Cut Leaks

Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Acciona SA, a renewable energy company that’s built more than 70 desalination plants, will deploy Spain’s first smart-water grid in the historic center of the western city of Caceres to help detect underground leaks.

Acciona Agua, the water-services division of Alcobendas, Spain-based Acciona, said today that the works are part of a 10 million-euro ($13.5 million) research project to manage drinking water networks and cut costs and waste that includes the U.K.’s Thames Water Utilities Ltd., Vitens NV of the Netherlands and four demonstration sites across Europe.

Software programs, remote meter readers and monitoring sensors in the city center and old town that feature about 35 percent of Caceres will aid in managing drinking-water networks and detecting leaks and pipe faults more quickly, Acciona said in a statement.
