To handle severe water losses, customised collars from Hydro Cos were used to repair eight major leaks on the largest pipeline in southern Italy.
Several leaks on the largest and most important pipeline in southern Italy, Adduttore Sinni, was in critical need of repair. The pipeline is DN3000, and supplies fresh water to Apulia and Lucania, serving about 4.5 million people. It goes from the Sinni dam to the western area of the Taranto district, covering a distance of about 133 kilometres.
Leaks on the pipeline means, of course, physical water losses, but also unnecessary energy consumption for producing and pumping clean water that is then finally lost.
