Hamad International Airport reduces leaks by 60%
The airport had to deal with a large volume of non-registered water in its extensive water distribution networks. Faced with this situation, the implementation of Idrica’s services and technology managed to boost efficiency in the facilities. Some of the results were a 60% reduction in the number of leaks and 20% reduction in maintenance costs.
Challenges of the project
The airport was facing a large volume of undetected losses and leaks in its extensive distribution networks, reaching thousands of m3.
In this context, it was necessary to implement a regulated inventory for managing assets in the facilities and to establish a monitoring system for the distribution networks. It was also essential to achieve a centralized management of distribution and supplies.
About Hamad International Airport
Located in the city of Doha, Qatar, the airport has been operating since 2014 and has the capacity to serve 30 million passengers a year.
- Sector: Aeronautics
- Location: Doha, Qatar
- Technology: GoAigua – Leaks
- Service: Consultancy
The project combined engineering services with the implementation of GoAigua’s technological solution for Leaks.
- First, the distribution networks were traced and assets were cataloged.
- The facilities were then sensorized to monitor processes and detect leaks, using flowmeters and pressure gauges.
- Finally, data was integrated to centralize management and provide a holistic view. Through GoAigua’s technological solution, the client centralized the detection of leaks and automated the creation and prioritization of work orders. In addition, it was possible to visualize information on assets in real time and establish an automatic alarm system.
Idrica guided Hamad International Airport in the process by providing a digital transformation consulting service. This included technical areas, processes and the transmission of knowledge to operators.

Benefits and results
Idrica’s combination of services and technology provides each customer with a holistic vision of the entire water cycle.
The project enabled Hamad Airport to reduce non-registered water through network layout, sensorization and centralized management of its assets, facilities and distribution networks.
The cataloguing, monitoring and integration of information using Big Data technologies managed to reduce the costs of installing digital solutions, maintenance and energy consumption. In addition, the automation of work orders meant greater efficiency in field work and earlier action against leaks.
-60% leaks in the distribution network
-80% installation costs of digital solutions
-20% maintenance costs
-15% energy consumption at the airport
