Drawing on their established track record supporting water industry installations, SIPOSí quote was technically competent and an order for 21 SIPOS 5 PROFITRON actuators with MODBUS interface and pedestals was promptly placed.

Comprehensive support services reinforced selection of SIPOSí products Ė local assistance will be given for installation, commissioning and control system integration for the first actuators supplied. On-site training will also be given to EMDUPARís staff.
