The award recognizes GoAigua SARS Analytics as the best solution for the early detection of COVID-19 in wastewater
The prize was awarded during the WE Water Innovation Week (22-25 June 2020), with over 200 participants in the online plenary sessions and digital Working Group meetings. It was collected by Chema Nebot, Business Development Director, on behalf of the company. Under the topic “A Water-Smart Society For A Post-COVID19 Green Deal”, the aim of the event is to build a water-smart society.
GoAigua SARS Analytics is an Early Warning System (EWS), which, based on analytical parameters of wastewater, as well as on other socio-sanitary and geographical variables, facilitates decision-making for authorities and technicians in the face of possible new outbreaks of COVID-19.
The solution is a reference platform for integration, visualization, analysis, and decision support system. It is built over GoAigua platform for the entire water cycle management, which means it is flexible, customizable and scalable to the needs of each client. This is possible thanks to an IT architecture in which different microservices are vertically connected to the Big Data engine, which automatically allocates processing resources depending of the needs of each process.
GoAigua’s technology offers a system for data import from multiple sources, the identification of optimum spots for wastewater sampling, the management of work orders in field and laboratories, the control of lockdown measures and the identification of risk indicators.
With GoAigua SARS Analytics, water becomes an important data source to fight against the pandemic
With GoAigua SARS Analytics, water becomes an important data source to fight against the pandemic. By leveraging all the potential of digital water, it converts water systems into an instrument to analyze the evolution of the pandemic and identify the origins (in time and space) of new outbreaks of the virus within a delimited area. This way, the water industry can contribute to solve one of the main challenges nowadays.
After a successful implementation in Valencia, Spain, Idrica is ready to start implementing the GoAigua SARS Analytics solution in those locations which require a single environment to monitor the evolution of the pandemic and help decision-making process.
