rely on Capta Hydro's solutions
Inefficiency and lack of visibility in distribution, coupled with increasingly variable flow rates, have diminished surface water security for irrigation for many agricultural producers.
Fortunately, many of these challenges can be solved with our solutions.
Canal Melado Association Project
The Melado Canal Association manages one of the oldest irrigation works in the country,
with more than 90 years of history, distributing about 20 m3/s to its users, in addition to having a series of hydroelectric power plants. It is also part of the beneficiaries of the Ancoa Dam, completed in 2015 in the valley of the same name.
Although the reservoir helped them to improve their irrigation security – and the hydroelectric power plants to have more income – these works imply greater demands on management and transparency in their distribution to other OAUs with which they share infrastructure.
these works imply a greater demand for management and transparency in their distribution to other OUAs with which they share infrastructure. In addition, the lower flows have put pressure on the company to improve its efficiency and accuracy in delivering water to its users.
Given these challenges, the Melado Channel Board of Directors
embarked on a multi-year plan to modernize its distribution network.
The Melado Canal Board of Directors, incorporating a series of advanced Capta Hydro telemetry and automation equipment, in addition to using Capta AMARU Software to monitor and optimize flow distribution. Discover these solutions below:
Telemetry for surface water without gauging section
Flow and volume monitoring in channels without gauging sections. Includes surface water speed sensor (radar).
Systems 100% autonomous and adaptable to existing infrastructure.
Renewal of floodgates.
Telemetry for surface water in gauging sections
Flow and volume monitoring in channels with gauging sections. Includes level sensor (ultrasonic or radar).
Accelerates implementation of telemetry and automation in the channel network
Equipment more adaptable to the infrastructure, anti-theft and with lower total costs.
Visibility of available flows 24/7 for your users, minimizing claims and uncertainty.
and distribution accuracy
Identifies and reduces losses due to water theft and overflows. Determine the sections with the highest leakage.
Capta CFT Channel Telemetry
Flow monitoring at intake and gauging sections.
Capta Channel Telemetry CFT-Radar
Flow monitoring in channel sections without gauging sections
Capta Channel Telemetry CFT-Nano
Monitoring of flow rates in final deliveries
Capta AMARU Software
Flexible software platform for centralization and management of all source water data
Third Party Data Integration Service and submission to DGA
Integration of data from other suppliers to AMARU plus submission of data for DGA regulation of effective surface extractions (DS53 DGA).
Capta ReGIS application
Integration of data from other providers to AMARU plus sending data to DGA for MOP Supreme Decree N°53 for monitoring of extractions, monitoring of ecological flow (SMA) and consulting and gauging services.
“What is not measured, cannot be managed correctly. With Capta Hydro we found a definitive solution to the uncertainty regarding our surface water source.”
