Leading communications and SCADA network supplier, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced a €750,000 contract to provide a SCADA system to Wexford County Council. The initial system will comprise a web-connected SCADA server linked via high power radio to the forty main water treatment and distribution assets including abstraction points, treatment plants, pumping stations and reservoirs.
In addition the system will be linked via SMS with over 300 metering points across the entire distribution network. The system provides a comprehensive platform for the monitoring, control reporting and analysis of all aspects of network performance including water quality, flow rates, storage capacity, plant faults and maintenance issues. Within weeks of installation the operators and caretakers have seen the benefits.
The web connected SCADA server provides plant caretakers with a real-time view of the status of their plant from any web-connected PC. Now caretakers can perform out of-hour’s checks without having to attend site.
