ABB India collaborates with Surat Municipal Corporation for water supply project
ABB India Limited has partnered with Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) to roll out next-generation technology for delivering continuous water supply across the city of Surat with a 24/7 water supply scheme. This project is in line with the Government of India’s Smart Cities Mission.
ABB has partnered with SMC on this project with support from Shrirang Sales Corporation, one of the leading industrial groups in Gujarat.
ABB’s electrification equipment such as air circuit breakers (ACB), molded case circuit breakers (MCCB), miniature circuit breakers (MCBs), contactors, manual motor starters (MMS), overload relays (OLR), and pilot devices help reduce system downtime by providing steady and reliable power for the water management system to function efficiently.
In order 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.
Surat faces significant water demand from industrial sectors, with clusters of textile units consuming more than 450 million litres per day. Accordingly, the city is addressing the critical issue of optimum water usage across domestic, commercial, and industrial consumption.
During the September quarter, the company has bagged orders from transportation, pharma, energy, and water segments worth Rs 1,308 crore. Its total order book stood at Rs 4,390 crore spread across various end markets as of September 30, 2020.
On Friday, the stock of ABB India was trading 1 per cent higher at Rs 1,288.35 from its previous close of Rs 1,276.05.
