Starlink for the water sector

Onwave offers a fully managed Starlink solution for those across the water utility sector.

How Starlink benefits the water sector

Starlink offers significant benefits to water utility companies by providing reliable and high-speed internet connectivity to enhance operations.

The water sector can benefit from enhanced connectivity across remote locations including dams, reservoirs and sewage treatment plants. We can also ensure connectivity in vehicles for remote workers.

  • Starlink for real-time monitoring

Starlink enables real-time monitoring and management of water infrastructure, such as pipelines, reservoirs, and treatment facilities, even in the remotest of locations.

This enables leak detection, water quality monitoring, environmental sensors and IOT data to be collected. Having robust connectivity for real-time flow of information so that problems can be easily picked up before they escalate.

Having this means optimisation of resource usage, leading to improved operational efficiency and cost savings.

  • Keeping remote workers connected

Starlink’s low-latency connectivity facilitates seamless communication between remote workers, control centres, and offices, enabling faster response times to emergencies, maintenance issues, and customer inquiries.

  • Serving rural communities

Starlink’s global coverage ensures connectivity in areas with limited traditional internet infrastructure, enabling water utility companies to extend their services to rural or underserved communities more efficiently -ensuring these communities receive the same level of service as those in more connected areas.

  • Enabling efficiency

Starlink empowers water utility companies with reliable, high-speed internet access, enabling them to optimise operations, enhance customer service, and expand their reach, ultimately contributing to the efficient and sustainable management of water resources.

  • IOT, technology and innovation 

The adoption of technology is increasing across the water sector, and this requires robust connectivity solutions to ensure these technologies can thrive in the often challenging environments. Sensors, smart metering and remote equipment monitoring are forecast to grow to $2 billion by 2030.

Water is a finite resource and ensuring that technology supports smart water management, water quality and safety monitoring, environmental monitoring and reporting and equipment management and maintenance is vital.
