Danish delegation visited the water utilities of Sao Paulo in June
More than 13 Danish companies joined forces in February 2015 and responded to an "emergency call" from one of Sao Paulo's water utilities.

In June a Danish delegation, representing the many Danish companies went to Brazil and presented our solutions within groundwater management and mapping, leakage detection, metering, energy optimization, and special treatment.
