Case Study - Hitachi in Brazil


Sabesp - Hitachi Case Study Result

Results & Benefits

The Cantarieira System is still functioning at peak performance levels. Every second, 33 thousand liters of water pass through the Hitachi pumps. Today, the Cantariera System supplies water to 8.8 million people in 39 cities in the São Paulo metropolitan area. 47% of the water supplied by Sabesp comes from this single system. Hitachi played a critical and pivotal role in helping Sabesp accomplish its objective and improve the health, welfare and quality of life for the people living in one of the largest metropolitan regions in the world.

Additionally, the project has had benefits that extended beyond the initial challenge presented. As a result of the development of the Cantareira Complex, the government of Brazil adopted concrete guidelines and policies for development that are designed to protect the ecological equilibrium of the region.
