In 2016, Abbanoa S.p.A., with the support of Hitachi and the council of Oliena, undertook an innovative project to reduce the leakages and increase the efficiency of its water supply network. The success of the 'Oliena model' has meant that it is being implemented in other municipalities across Sardinia, saving water and improving supply for the entire island.

Oliena's water supply is guaranteed by a natural source, a spring in the surrounding area named Su Gologone, one of the most important natural sites in Sardinia. The Challenge facing Oliena was to find a way to reduce water loss. The village has an aging water network with high levels of leakage and an intermittent supply.

With the support of Hitachi, the water supply of Oliena has been improved by prioritising pressure management, air control and prevention of pressure variations. Hitachi's solution is based on an audit of the existing water network, followed by analysis and technical enhancements such as network design, air and water pressure management, and leak detection. The expertise of the Hitachi team and the close collaboration with the partner stakeholders led to a framework of interventions that solved the existing issues and added an efficient stability to Oliena's water network.

The Partnership

In 2015, an island-wide partnership was established

(Click to read more)

In 2015, an island-wide partnership was established to implement a set of interconnected projects, with the aim to cut electricity bills by 40%, meet 40% of energy demand through renewables and see 40% of vehicles be low-carbon or electric by 2025. The partnership brought Hitachi together with the Council of the Isles of Scilly, the Duchy of Cornwall, Tresco and the Islands' Partnership - all collaborating to help residents and businesses move to a lower-carbon economy. The partnership demonstrates that Social Innovation can be driven from even the smallest communities to build solutions for their unique challenges.
