CMPC requires a constant source of water to carry out its production processes optimally. For its Cordillera plant, located in the Metropolitan Region, this water source is surface water from the Maipo River and distributed by the Sociedad del Canal del Maipo.
Although the Cordillera plant has not yet experienced production problems due to water scarcity, it did not know how much water it was receiving or using in its processes. As a result, it did not have the information to plan ahead for drier years or set goals for more water-efficient production.
To address this, CMPC contacted Capta Hydro to implement a comprehensive solution to monitor their water sources, including an initial hydraulic consultancy for their flow measurement sections and point flow measurements, followed by the implementation of flow measurement sections and telemetry in their extractions and returns.
