Maintenance and Operation of Irrigation Infrastruc
Experience, resources and management skills assume special importance when it comes to irrigation. This is an area in which aqualia has various projects in progress to improve performance in a particular area of the relevant region. As part of its commitment to water user associations that dates back more than a decade, it develops tools that modernise irrigation operations, optimise water resources and improve efficiency in the use of the same. The focus on innovative solutions and sustainable development as part of the modernisation of irrigation has resulted in the creation of SISGRE, an integral management system that facilitates optimal control of all assets of each water user association. SISGRE (Sistema de Gestión para Regantes) is the product of the combination of the technological contribution of CADIC, SA via the Spanish platform LATINO GIS, and the management capabilities and broad-ranging experience of aqualia as a company expert in the integral water cycle.
