DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

1. Technical engineering services for the elaboration of studies, projects and implementation of optimization plans for water supply networks seeking the reduction of actual losses, allowing better operational and management efficiency in the network;
Actual losses represent water that does not reach consumers, that is to say, wasted water. That is one of Vita Ambiental’s main concerns, which originated the term Ambiental (Environmental) in the company’s name. Through hydraulic modeling, research on non-visible leaks and the use of cutting-edge technology, the company has implemented measures that allow a significant reduction in the actual water loss index in water supply networks. Such reductions mean, not only the company’s serious concern with the environment, but important savings for those who operate water supply systems, allowing investments to be directed to achieve universal service quicker for water distribution systems in its operating areas.
2. Engineering services for loss reduction through water regularization, suppression of irregular infrastructure and recovery of customers;
The urban development of cities does not always occur at an orderly and coordinated pace, causing infrastructure, especially water supply and sewerage networks, to be heavily impaired. These services, when not deployed following the irregular growth of neighborhoods, end up being carried out by the residents themselves in highly inadequate form. Vita specializes in deploying water supply and sewerage networks in places with difficult access, such as communities with irregular connections. In them are built water supply and sewerage networks and proper connections are made for its users, resulting in fewer losses in water distribution systems, effective payments by clients and continuous access to water supply.
3. SMART HYDROMETERS. Daily data reports on water consumption and warnings about incidents in water supply connections;
Smart hydrometers are a pioneer initiative in sanitation, it brings innovation and efficiency in the field for clients who will now be able to see their water consumption measured daily through the internet via IoT (internet of things) technology. IoT is a low cost technology that helps with water loss reduction, and thus contributes to the environment. It is more efficient in detecting and combating fraud and improves relationships with clients. For sanitation companies, it improves the relationship with their clients through monitoring and reporting daily data and is also advantageous since contracting can be done through performance contracts, in which the supplier operates in a system where they are paid based on the quality and continuity of data reports.
4. Recovery of clients’ overdue credit through engineering services and administrative billing;
Delinquency is also considered water loss. In this case, although the consumer might be consuming the product, the service provider stops collecting financial resources, which may impact its investment and budgetary plans. Vita Ambiental has a vast experience in the elaboration of studies that allow an increase in overdue credit recovery through better awareness of the reasons for delinquency, which could be financial hardship or fraud, for example. Through this diagnosis, solutions are formulated, among them is administrative billing, which is less costly for service providers and more efficient in overdue credit recovery.
5. Implementation of rational water consumption programs in buildings– PURA;
Hydraulic facilities in buildings, be they residential, comercial, industrial, public or private, can, over time, become obsolete or even malfunction, in which case they will fatally cause water loss and, consequently, waste electricity. Given the current situation of worldwide water scarcity, several equipment have been developed to save water, like taps and toilets. Our experience in this field allows us to identify, through surveilled consumption, inefficiencies in facilities and to elaborate plans for equipment and pipeline substitution and searches for non-visible leaks. These rapidly obtained savings compensate for investments in improvement, aside from contributing with sustainable water consumption.
6. Engineering services seeking the readjustment and modernisation of a water pumping station;
Drawing on engineering studies along with new technologies, Vita Ambiental offers operational alternatives in water pumping stations to minimize electrical consumption or to reduce electricity costs in water and sewage pumping stations.
7. Installation of pressure reducing valves (PRVs);
One of the main factors that reduce water loss in water supply networks is good pressure management in distribution networks. In this case the installation of pressure reducing valves and data loggers in critical locations are essential for management to function well and management is increasingly remotely monitored nowadays. Vita professionals, having partaken in the whole process of applying this equipment in water supply networks throughout Brazil, now have vast experience in studies and installations of this type of valve.
8. Booster readjustments and complementary engineering services, aiming at an increase in operational efficiency with the reduction of energy consumption and the reduction of water volume provided through pressure control in the supply sector;
Studies on optimizing water distribution networks are analysed, modeled and have the necessary adjustments added to supply networks. In this case, booster readjustments aim to fix two problems of many sanitation companies: good supply pressure versus minimum energy consumption. Booster readjustment studies seek to achieve this equilibrium together with the correct modelling in our field of work.
9. Technical services for the elaboration of studies, projects and implementation of measures for the rational use of electricity in water and sewage treatment plants.
Over these years, Vita Ambiental developed great experience in energy efficiency projects for water and sewage treatment plants. Such projects consider electrical production from sewage sludge from the plants. Another possibility suggested by hydraulic studies is the construction of stockpiling reservoirs to prevent energy usage during peak consumption hours, when electrical costs are much higher.
