Nestlé Group’s division Nestlé Waters is set to deploy a real-time water monitoring technology developed by French start-up Aquassay across its facilities in more than 20 countries.

Aquassay’s real-time data analysis solution ‘SAAS’ has been designed to drive efficient water use.

Nestlé Waters operations head Peter Hagmann said: “This technology gives us real-time data and trend analyses using predictive models to help Nestlé Waters consume less and produce the highest quality water by monitoring every aspect of the process in our bottling plants.”

The company noted that the new technology has already been implemented at its facilities in Henniez, Switzerland and Benha, Egypt to facilitate continuous monitoring of water quality and quantity.

A new monitoring system installed at the Benha site was developed by Aquassay in collaboration with Nestlé Waters Product Technology Centre.

The system has been designed and developed to identify defects at an early stage, thereby avoiding unplanned and production shut-downs.

Aquassay’s on-line application collects complete data of the facilities, presenting it on computer, tablet and smartphone devices.

Given the current climate, how long do you anticipate it will take for the global economy to recover post COVID-19?

Nestlé Waters operations and water resources team will use the gathered information to ensure water quality and efficiency.

Aquassay CEO Stephane Gilbert said: “The Aquassay application helps both business users and municipal water managers to use and reuse water most efficiently.

“The application gives water resources teams a fuller understanding of the complete water cycle across all points of the operations.”

Additionally, the initiative will support Nestlé Waters’ commitment to the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), helping the organisation to prepare a platform ensuring that all its water bottling sites are in line with AWS Standards by 2025, as announced in June last year.
