These and other services are being improved through several IoT projects. Towards ensuring success with service development, HSY and Knowit drafted an overall vision and strategy for IoT. The aim was to coordinate and manage all of the agency’s IoT projects to ensure a better total result. The strategy also promotes innovation and collaboration - a significant effect for the largest organisation and pioneer in water and waste management in Finland.
Internet of things (IoT) controls water and waste in Helsinki
HSY (Helsinki Region Environmental Services) plays an important part for the Finnish capital - the agency supplies more than a million people with drinking water, treats wastewater and manages the majority of waste produced in the region.
Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
The aim is to ensure access to sustainable water and sanitation management for everyone. By applying IoT, HSY and other organisations can ensure sustainable water supply and make water use significantly more efficient.
