Spain s large water companies, Consorci d AigE-es de Tarragona (CAT), will become the first water utility in Europe to implement Derceto s Aquadapt operations optimisation software.
Following a competitive tender process CAT has awarded a contract to Derceto s local implementation partner Adasa, a specialist water utility systems integration and services companies in Spain.
Clearly, some of the early and wonderfully fanciful maps show fantasy was the stuff of life to men such as Kircher (and Leonardo Da Vinci not to mention Michelangelo) so it is no surprise to find a scaly goddess called Derceto
haunting the lonely marshes of ancient Palestine.
Semiramis, reina de Babilonia, lo fundo para dedicarlo a su madre Derceto (hipotesis que se relaciona con el hecho de que los peces son sagrados porque Derceto es medio mujer, medio pez, aunque la representacion de Hierapolis es una mujer entera; y tambien con el hecho de considerar sagradas las palomas, ya que Semiramis, al morir, se transformo en paloma).
Otra cosa son los dioses principales: por lo que se refiere a Hera, ya hemos visto al principio que el propio autor expone que no hay consenso sobre si es Hera, o Derceto o Rea; ademas, en cuanto a su aspecto, puede ser Hera pero tambien Atenea, Afrodita, Selene, Rea, Artemis, Nemesis y las Moiras.
Derceto, the software developed by Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner consultants, uses tables of past usage to prepare a daily predicted schedule of water use and the expected most-effective balance of pumping and treatment of water to minimise energy costs for that day.
Judges praised the Derceto system for solving a previously intractable problem and for earning wide acceptance as a user-friendly, flexible and reliable tool--one that is now being marketed offshore.
It calls Piscis Austrinus the Great Fish and links it with Derceto, a Syrian mother goddess whose cult was headquartered at Bambyke (or Hieropolis).
According to the Catasterismi, Derceto once fell into a lake near Bambyke but was rescued by a fish now honored as the constellation Piscis Austrinus.
Informing us that the Southern Fish once saved the goddess Derceto from drowning, the Catasterismi's entry for Piscis Austrinus adds a little, but our catch is still way below the limit.
The stories are also essentially consistent with the Catasterismi, for Derceto was said to be the daughter of Aphrodite.
