Maximise wastewater treatment plant performance and efficiency with our Asset Optimisation service. Asset Optimisation is the ‘green’ solution for both new and legacy WwTWs, able to reduce energy usage and chemical consumption, whilst ensuring effluent quality and improving process reliability. The service utilises state-of-the-art intelligent control systems and real-time data monitoring to ensure round the clock optimisation of wastewater treatment processes
★ Real-time data monitoring - utilisation of existing instrumentation and addition of new instrumentation to measure key wastewater treatment process parameters, to be fed into the CREA® platform.
★ In-house design & fabrication - of control panels and MCCs using industry standard PLCs and SCADA systems for deployment on industrial networks including Ethernet, Profibus, ProfiNet, DH+, Modbus and Asis.
★ Installation & integration - of control systems, instrumentation, hardware & software to allow process control systems to interact with plant hardware.
★ Service flexibility – Asset Optimisation solutions for both new and legacy builds, of any size, process configuration & aeration technology.
Unlike most process industries, which have consistent operating conditions, with controlled feedstocks and carefully planned production, the water industry’s “feedstock” is whatever comes down the sewer, with massive variations in flow and quality depending on the season, the weather and the time of day.
Even with the best conventional control systems, many wastewater treatment works frequently over-aerate, adding to energy costs, or under-aerate leading to performance problems. Similarly, chemical dosing controllers all too often over- or under-dose because they cannot respond quickly enough to changes in influent quality. With ever tightening effluent discharge consents, rising costs and extreme weather events adding to the pressures on the industry, optimisation of wastewater treatment assets has never been more important.
Our Asset Optimisation service focuses on continuous process optimisation, using the CREA® Intelligent Control System combined with real-time data monitoring, to ensure that treatment works are operating at peak efficiency at all time.
✔ Maximise process performance, reliability and overall plant efficiency
✔ Ensure effluent quality
✔ Reduce energy & chemical consumption
✔ Extend the life of existing assets
CREA® is an intelligent control system and forms the basis of our Asset Optimisation service. The system provides real-time control and decision-making over wastewater treatment processes, to maximise process performance and reliability in order to improve overall plant efficiency.
CREA® has modules to control aerobic and anaerobic biological processes, chemical dosing, sludge age, recycling and sludge thickening, dewatering and digestion. It uses artificial intelligence combined with classic mathematical models and fuzzy logic, CREA® ensures treated effluent quality is always met, whilst minimising energy and chemical consumption and reducing carbon footprint.
