Kahramaa calls upon VITO to monitor and safeguard the water quality in water storage reservoirs in Qatar

(14/12/2016) Qatar is almost completely dependent on desalination for its drinking water supply. Today Qatar has a rather limited storage capacity, in case the desalination system fails. Through the construction of megareservoirs they want to increase storage capacity and thus water security.

VITO signed a contract with Kahramaa Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation. The contract will allow VITO to support Kahramaa in their capacity to monitor and safeguard the water quality in water storage reservoirs.

Kahramaa is planning and executing the construction of megareservoirs in the near future ensuring increased water security in Qatar. The water quality will be monitored using underwater drones in combination with modeling software to visualize water quality in the interior of the reservoir. Apart from the water services, VITO and Kahramaa hope to further enhance their collaboration also in the field of energy technology.
