Global Innovation

Miya, is an operator of water assets and a provider of end-to-end integrated solutions in urban water efficiency.

Established in 2008, with the mission of ensuring the abundant supply of fresh water through efficient management of existing resources, Miya operates via two complementary channels:

Water asset operation – Miya transforms the operation and management of water utilities to ensure their effective performance.

Water efficiency solutions – a global leader delivering end-to-end integrated solutions for urban water utilities worldwide.

 

By bringing-in its extensive know-how and proven methodologies, Miya drives utilities forward and ensures maximized an efficiency of water systems in cities across the globe. This also enhances customer service levels, reduces energy consumption, and lowers contamination and health risks, benefitting people, community, and the environment.

With long-term operations in Portugal, Brazil, the Caribbean and the Philippines, it focuses on two key segments:

 

Water and wastewater concessions
In 2016, 
Miya expanded its portfolio by acquiring a controlling shareholding in Indaqua, Portugal's leading private water and wastewater company. Indaqua serves seven utilities in Portugal's north-west, covering an area of 1,000 square kilometers with a distribution network of more than 600,000 residents (holding 100% market share of these consumers). Miya applies its efficiency-driven practices to drastically improve Indaqua's operational and financial performance.

 

End-to-end integrated solutions for water efficiency
Miya specializes in complex, turnaround water efficiency projects, focused on reducing non-revenue water (NRW). NRW is the gap between the amount of water that is pumped or produced into the distribution system and the amount of water billed to the end consumers. Since many water distribution systems in cities worldwide are aged and inefficient, NRW has become a major global challenge.

A full range of offering

Miya focuses on delivering the most sustainable and cost-effective solutions, catering to the global challenges of fresh water supply, and water and wastewater treatment. Miya applies breakthrough technological innovation and advanced management models, partnering with utility world-over to tap into the abundance of fresh water. Miya's teams commercially maximize water and wastewater concessions and effectively run pivotal water efficiency projects that save more than 800M liters (211M gallons) of fresh water per day, bringing fresh water to millions of people.

 

Values-based portfolio

In all our endeavors, Miya implements the core values of Leadership, Moral Responsibility, Excellence, Innovation, Partnership, and Purity. We significantly improve our partners' financial and operational efficiency, while also enhancing their customer service levels, reducing energy consumption, and lowering contamination and health risk. Our approach is foremost values-based, to benefit people, economy, and the environment.

 

Awards and recognition

Miya has been awarded several prestigious awards for its global water efficiency projects, including IWA Project Innovation Award two years in a row (2013 and 2014), and shortlisted for the prestigious 2014 GWI Performance Initiative of the Year Prize, for our mega-scale projects in the Philippines and the Bahamas. Miya also received the 2010 GWI Project of the Year Award, for our advanced pressure management installation in South Africa, and the 2009 GWI Sustainability Award presented to Miya by former Vice President Al Gore.

In the sphere of concessions, Miya has acquired Portugal's largest water operator and manages seven utilities through its subsidiary Indaqua.
