Under the Ministry of Agriculture, the Société Nationale d’Exploitation et de Distribution des Eaux (SONEDE) has for mission the production and distribution of drinking water on the whole Tunisian country. Its main activities are the study and construction of facilities for the collection, treatment and production of drinking water, the technical management of networks and the commercial management of subscribers.
SONEDE operates throughout all the territory of the Republic of Tunisia and desserts – at the end of 2013 – 2.5 million subscribers through a network of 49,000 kilometres.
SONEDE launched an international tender for the acquisition and installation of a business GIS application for the technical management of its drinking water networks. The 1Spatial Group was selected for its expertise in cartographic solutions dedicated to water networks management. 1Spatial will take care of the canned solution deployment throughout the country and will also provide most of the associated services: installations, trainings, specific developments, project management…
This strategic project – for an initial period of 4 years – is currently being deployed. It will enable SONEDE to map, manage and operate in a real business Geographic Information System all its facilities and drinking water networks.
