Water suppliers across the globe are faced with the challenge of providing drinking water via supply grids and continuously ensuring its quality. As such, it is crucial to have sensors capable of monitoring the quality of the drinking water grid in real time.
BIRDZ is a leader in the monitoring and control of water quality. Using innovative products such as KAPTA™, monitored fire hydrants and G2 and G3 smart meters, BIRDZ is able to identify events and deviations in the quality of the water on the grid and thus facilitate analysis and intervention by suppliers.
In addition, BIRDZ monitors the time spent by the water within the grid and its temperature, two crucial elements for optimal water quality.
The success of this solution has been proven at various sporting, cultural and political events, as well as on the scale of entire cities.
Water safety is a global challenge to which BIRDZ provides effective and high-performing solutions.
Today, health risks are present throughout the drinking water grid, for several reasons: ageing pipes, widespread use of chemical products in industrial procedures, accidents and terror threats. Thus, providing and improving water quality is a major challenge for the 21st century, which the United Nations has responded to with its Sustainable Development Goals.
To meet this challenge, BIRDZ has developed innovative tools
for the continuous monitoring and checking
of water quality, in order to ensure consumer safety.
The KAPTA™ 3000-AC4 probe is a true asset for water instrumentation and has been specially developed as a tool for improved management and monitoring of the drinking water supply. It is directly installed inside piping systems under load and continuously measures the four key parameters recommended by the WHO as indicators of water quality: chlorine, pressure, conductivity and temperature.
Its design, use, and mode of communication are all intended to facilitate its installation and application on site. Further, this innovative, modern and reliable solution offers expert real-time monitoring of water supply quality.
With the KAPTA™ 3000-AC4 probe, BIRDZ monitors the quality of the drinking water throughout its journey and alerts you to any deviations.
The KAPTA™ 2000-AC2 probe has been developed specifically to measure active chlorine and temperature. It can be used for the management and quality control of water treatment processes in different applications: untreated water, drinking water, swimming pool water, or industrial processes.
Easy to use, it enables suppliers to effectively monitor the main types of disinfection and ensure a satisfactory level of water quality.
With the KAPTA™2000-AC2 probe, BIRDZ ensures the quality of water from treatment onwards.
The SWARM system is an innovative solution for monitoring the quality of surface water. Equipped with a float, it can be installed directly and easily on any type of body of water or watercourse.
Using the SWARM system, the water supplier can continuously monitor changes in the seven key parameters for the quality and condition of surface water: conductivity, temperature, speed, depth, dissolved oxygen, turbidity and organic matter.
Using the SWARM system, BIRDZ ensures the quality of the surface water source.
These three technologies make it possible to monitor the quality of water throughout its cycle: from the surface water resource to the end consumer.
These technologies make BIRDZ an essential partner in responding to the challenge of ensuring a safe global water supply.
Since the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai and the 2012 Olympic Games in London, BIRDZ has become an essential partner in providing safe drinking water at major global events.
Now more than ever, major events (political, cultural or sporting) must be secured against any risk of sanitary or environmental contamination, whether intentional or not.
To reduce any risks and enable visitors to enjoy major events with complete peace of mind, BIRDZ works hand in hand with local authorities and has developed a phased approach that has been endorsed by SecurEau (a project sponsored by the European Commission).
Since 2010, BIRDZ has contributed to the safety of major events: the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the 2012 London Olympic Games, the 2013 Francophonie Summit in Nice, and COP21 in 2015.
Distributed at sensitive points on the grid, the KAPTA™ 3000-AC4 probes continuously measure the vital parameters of water quality, as recommended by the World Health Organisation. The sensors continuously collect data and send it to a secure central server using a radio- or GSM-based communication system.
The system helps rapidly identify any introduction of contaminants into the water networks. Response time is crucial, and 24-hour surveillance is provided by experts who continuously monitor and analyse this data via a secure web service.
In the event of an alert, these experts identify the origin of the water contamination and determine whether it was accidental or incidental. If the abnormal deviation in the quality of the water remains unexplained, an alert is immediately sent to the security services assigned to the event.
continuously improve their knowledge and control of drinking water networks
have access to a decision-making tool for optimising asset management on their networks
be informed about any changes in the quality parameters for the water they are supplying
benefit from a reliable and simple system that does not require maintenance, energy or chemical reagents and has an unrivalled lifespan.
To enable water suppliers to enjoy all the advantages of this solution, BIRDZ has developed a complete value chain that is adapted to the needs of its clients.
This innovative service enables the monitoring of drinking water network safety and reduces operating costs compared to traditional continuous measurement systems. The performance of BIRDZ relies not only on innovative technology and 9 different patents, but also on the quality of its services and local partners.
Ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for everyone is the sixth of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations to transform our world.
BIRDZ makes universal access to drinking water a reality by providing water quality observation solutions.
During its transportation, water is subjected to several stresses that may influence its quality level. The solutions offered by BIRDZ make it possible to monitor water behaviour throughout its cycle by measuring the four key parameters: chlorine, pressure, conductivity and temperature.
BIRDZ turnkey solutions enable water operators to :
Analysis of client requirements and feasibility study
Provision of Kapta™ 3000 systems
Technical assistance & equipment guarantee
Configuration of alerts
Rapports annuels sur la qualité de l’eau
This innovative solution enables the monitoring of drinking water network safety and reduces operating costs, compared to traditional continuous measurement systems. The performance of BIRDZ relies, not only on innovative technology and 9 patents, but also on the quality of its services and local partners.
The safety of surface water resources is a major challenge of our era, and relates not only to drinking water management services, but also to the preservation of assets, the quality of life of residents, and health security.
The quality of drinking water depends on that of the river or water table as well as the treatments carried out after withdrawal, making it crucial to monitor and preserve the quality of the resource before it is withdrawn.
Similarly, monitoring the discharge from a purification plant, evaluating the impact of a sensitive area on upstream and downstream water, monitoring open-air reservoirs, and protecting aquatic events from inappropriate dumping (whether intentional or not), all constitute legitimate concerns for operators.
In response to these challenges, BIRDZ has developed the SWARM services, consisting of effective and innovative responses for the monitoring of surface water resources.
Our services focus on measuring the seven key parameters for the quality and condition of surface water: conductivity, temperature, speed, depth, dissolved oxygen, turbidity and organic matter.
Featuring a GSM or Radio communication system, SWARM is energy self-sufficient through the use of solar and wind power sources.
