Danish delegation to visit the water utilities of Sao Paulo in June
More than 15 Danish companies joined forces in February 2015 and responded to an "emergency call" from one of Sao Paulo's water utilities. The Danish companies drafted a concept proposal which highlighted Danish solutions to many of the problems incurred by the Brazilian water utility. In one week from now a delegation, representing the many Danish companies will go to Brazil and present our solutions within groundwater management and mapping, leakage detection, metering, energy optimization, and special treatment. The work has been coordinated by DWF and AVK with support from the Danish Consulate in Sao Paulo and has shown that concerted actions with a wider group of Danish companies could be the way forward to open new doors to export od Danish water knowhow and technology.
