Allonda launches monitoring system in works of Pinheiros river

Allonda, which is currently responsible for the sanitary sewage works for the depollution of Pinheiros river, in São Paulo (SP), started this month to fit its fleet of trucks and machines with a monitoring system. This technology includes a driver identification system software. As a result, from an application or a web platform, the company will have access to several pieces of information about the performance of each vehicle and take the necessary measures to improve its performance. The new system is being introduced in the works of the sub-basins Cordeiro and Ribeirão Jaguaré, which are part of the Novo Rio Pinheiros Program (Program New Pinheiros River) of Companhia de Saneamento Básico do Estado de São Paulo (Sabesp) (Basic Sanitation Company of the State of São Paulo).

“We will have, for example, the possibility of following, in real time, how the driver is working, how he is driving the truck inside the city, if he is respecting the speed limit, among other aspects. Therefore, throughout the whole period we will have access to data that will stimulate good security practices of our staff, passers-by, and equipment,” says Allonda CEO, Leo Cesar Melo.

Other benefits brought by the incorporation of this monitoring technology include vehicle tracking and data collection that may suggest mechanical problems, or the need for maintenance, in addition to indicating if there is excessive fuel consumption. As a result, it will also be possible to reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.

The Novo Rio Pinheiros project aims to reduce the volume of sewage discharged into the river’s affluents, improve the quality of its waters, and integrate it into the urban landscape, with revitalized riverbanks. The contracts in the sub-basins of Jaguaré and Cordeiro, where the technology will be used, will connect around 110 thousand units to the sewage collecting system. Two pumping stations will also be built, 18 kilometers of main collectors and another 18 kilometers of sewage system.
