An aging infrastructure is upgraded to provide water to 8.8 million people

Sao Paulo attracted a huge influx of people in the 1960s, but its outdated water infrastructure couldn't support this growth in population. To combat shortages and improve water quality, the service provider Sabesp needed a partner. A worldwide search led them to Hitachi Plant Technologies, who helped Sabesp find a solution to its battle with rugged uphill terrain and keep the water supply flowing.
