Xylem Vue powered by Goaigua showcased at the 25th Andesco Congress

On June 16, Andesco, one of the most important congresses in Latin America, came to a close. On this occasion, it was the setting chosen by Idrica and Xylem to showcase the Xylem Vue powered by GoAigua platform 

“An event that has become the leading utilities and communications forum”. These were the words used by Camilo Sánchez Ortega, the Andesco President, to define the recent congress held in Cartagena, Colombia. The conference’s numbers endorse this statement with over 180 sponsors, 130 exhibitors and over 20 billion COP in business deals closed during the congress, making Andesco one of the most important meeting points in Latin America.

Accordingly, Andesco was the venue chosen by Idrica to present Xylem Vue powered by GoAigua to the Latin American market. This technological platform has been developed as a result of the partnership between Idrica, an international pioneer in water data management, analysis and intelligent solutions for the water sector, and Xylem, a world leader in water technology.  


Nicolás Monterde, Idrica’s Operations Director for Latin America, said that the experience “has been very positive, with a large number of Colombia’s leading utilities taking part in the event”. The Idrica executive also participated as a speaker at the congress, analyzing the digital sustainability of the water sector. In his presentation, Monterde pointed out some of the current problems of water management, such as pollution, tariffs, the vulnerability of the population and water scarcity. These problems can be alleviated through digital transformation, and this is where Xylem Vue powered by GoAigua plays a leading role.  

The Andesco congress celebrated its 25th anniversary as the country’s reference event thanks to the attendance of national and international experts from water-sector companies, embassies, suppliers, chambers of commerce and social and environmental organizations, among others. At the event’s closing ceremony, the President of Andesco encouraged the participants to “work to find common ground with the Colombian government so that the economy and the country can move forward”, and focused on the country’s utilities, which Sánchez Ortega called “a silent, peaceful, effective, technical force, through which progress can be made in agreements with the government”.
