Söke Savanna Irrigation Association is to Realize "Intelligent Savanna" Project with SAMPAŞ Information And Communication Systems

(The “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation System” project is now alive. With signing of the contract between Söke Savanna Irrigation Association and SAMPAŞ Information and Communication Systems, all the data from production and irrigation processes in the region - in addition to the savanna’s terrain information- will be utilized to achieve operational efficiency and resource savings.)

SAMPAŞ Information and Communication Systems has recently signed the “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation” project contract with Söke Savanna Irrigation Association. With this project “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation” system will be collecting all production and irrigation data available in the region in addition to gathering and mapping terrain information on the system.

Irrigation Association President Necdet Özekmekçi, Irrigation Association Manager Ömer Yıldız and SAMPAŞ Information and Communication Systems – Intelligent Water and Payment Systems Director Coşkun Ağacıklar attended the signing ceremony which took place in Söke Savanna Irrigation Association building.  

In the past year, “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation” project was presented to GEKA. After an intensive evaluation period, GEKA has decided to support the Söke project. Later in the fall of 2011, GEKA and Söke Savanna Irrigation Association signed a project support contract. With a total cost of 755,000 TL, GEKA will cover 25% of all the expenses while SAMPAŞ will be preparing the application software fundamental to the realization of the project.

The project - which will be applied for the first time in Turkey – is to gather Söke Savanna’s terrain information along with production and irrigation data regarding all the stakeholders in one integrated system. By making savanna’s irrigation processes more efficient, greater resource savings will be possible. With “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation,” Söke Savanna’s complete production map will be prepared and the data obtained through the system will be used to realize future projects in the region.

Regarding “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation” project SAMPAŞ – Intelligent Water and Payment Systems Director Coşkun Ağacıklar said: ‘As a first in Turkey, “Intelligent Savanna Irrigation” project will be applied in Söke. The project will make everybody’s lives better who are working and earning their breads in the region. The system will also make it possible for the Irrigation Association to follow irrigation and agriculture processes to the last detail, creating significant operational savings.”
