JOHOR BARU: Ranhill SAJ Sdn Bhd (Ranhill SAJ) has set up a control centre to monitor the operation of treated water supply for 1.26 million consumers in Johor.
The setting-up of the centre is in line with the rapid development of technology involving the water supply industry in Malaysia.
“The centre is also seen as a good reference for water operators in other states in the country,’’ it said in a statement.
It said the operators could come out with effective methods to improve the quality of service in the supply of treated water to their users.
Apart from overseeing the entire water supply operation, the centre is also responsible for the production, distribution, alarm system, non-related water revenue (NRW) control and related matters.
“We aim to standardise the data collection system for the operation of treated water supply in addition to monitoring the current water supply based on real-time monitoring,’’ it added.
It also said the centre acts as a response unit to minimise the risk of water disruptions.
The centre was launched by Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad on Thursday (Jan 23).
Ranhill SAJ is a subsidiary of Ranhill Utilities Bhd, an integrated water supply company involved in the core activities of processing water treatment and distributing to users, as well as billings and collection.
It operates 46 water treatment plants in Johor with 2,133 million litres of treatment capacity daily with its network system consisting of 714 reservoirs and over 23,934km of pipelines supplying treated water to 3.7 million domestic and industrial users in Johor.
