The five-year project includes the supply, installation, testing, commissioning, and maintenance of telemetric rain gauge stations across Yermarus Circle

Bangalore-based Ingen Technologies, a fully-owned subsidiary of Weather Risk Management Services (WRMS), has recently collaborated with Water Resource Department Bangalore, Government of Karnataka and bagged the contract for procurement of Automatic Weather Station and automatic rain gauge stations in Southern India.

Under the 5 years project, Ingen technologies will take up the charge of supplying, installing, testing, commissioning, and maintaining a real-time data acquisition system (RTDAS) for the hydrological information system of 16 automatic weather stations (AWS) and 237 telemetric rain gauge stations (TRG) with telemetry system across Yermarus Circle (Bagalkot, Kalburgi & Dharwad divisions)Whereas, in Mysore Circle (Mysore and Hassan divisions), the company will supply, install, test, commission, and maintain RTDAS for hydrological information systems of 8 automatic weather stations (AWS) and 184 telemetric rain gauge stations (TRG) with telemetry systems.

Ingen Technologies will be fully responsible for providing the Water Resource Department in Bangalore, Government of Karnataka with Real Time Hydro-Met data acquisition network. It will also provide the key data required for forecasting inflows into the basin and other related activities. A Real Time Data Acquisition System (RTDAS) will consist of a telemetry network of rainfall and Hydro-meteorological (Weather) parameters that will be installed to provide inputs to the RTDAS.

Commenting on the announcement, Dr Ashish Agarwal, Co-Founder & CTO, WRMS, said, “Both the projects are a major leap forward for us to expand our solution across Southern India. Karnataka requires a cutting-edge Hydrological Information System (HIS) to supply the data and information required for the efficient management of the State’s water resources. Given the significance of agriculture to the state, resource management is paramount. We are confident that our Telemetric (Automatic) Rain Gauge (TRG / ARG) sensor and Automatic Weather Station (AWS) will help in timely detection of water-related risk to build climate resilience.”

Ingen Technologies Private Limited manufactures, supplies, installs and operates advanced farm IoTs like Automatic Weather Stations (AWS), Automatic Rain Gauge Systems (ARG), Automatic Irrigation Systems, etc. The company has installed more than 15,000 + IoTs across the country and is working with many government organisations like Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre, Andhra Pradesh State Development Planning Society, and more.
