The Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen officially opened the Danish Pavilion and stopped by the Danish booths to discuss how Danish technology can be used in Japan.
Tuesday afternoon the Danish pavilion invited for a workshop around water loss, lowering non-revenue water and introducing Smart water management.
The session was a combination of presenting new technology from both a producer and utility point of view as well as to present the LEAKman project to the audience with an invitation to “come and see for yourself” during the IWA 2020 in Copenhagen.
The LEAKman project was presented by Michael Ramlau from AVK, who is a partner in the project contributing with gate valves that facilitate listening points for noise loggers throughout the DMA (District Metered Area). With the newly developed "Intelligent" control valve, that receives information from pressure sensors placed in the DMA, the pressure in the zone can be stabilized resulting in lower water loss as well as a longer lifetime for the pipe network.
