Leading communications and SCADA network supplier, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced a contract with Kildare County Council for its River Barrow Abstraction Pipeline.
Under the terms of the deal, EMR will install the monitoring and control system for the new trunk main linking the new water treatment works at Srowland to the existing reservoirs at Ardscull and Old Kilcullan.
The system will provide automated pressure control and emergency shutdown in the event of a burst and all system information will be available to management and operators through the central server software.
The contract calls for the installation of communications and control equipment together with the central SCADA system to monitor and control the 15km pipeline through a network of 15 actuated valve and metering sites.
The project is expected to be completed within 6 months.
