Water supply networks for the best possible supply

Clear solutions for the future

Clear solutions for the future

Water is a necessity of life, and nothing can replace it. At all times, it has to meet requirements for perfect quality and be available in sufficient quantity and with sufficient pressure at every point of transfer. These key statements, based on DIN 2000, describe the primary importance of security of supply and the assurance of perfect water quality. With in-depth process expertise, extensive experience and proven products, systems and solutions, we work with you to develop the best solution for your needs – to ensure you are perfectly equipped to master the challenges of the global water industry.

Highlights

Ensuring reliable supply

Water supply networks ensure the supply of clean water, whether it’s for a major city or a rural region. To make it available, the water is directed via pumping stations and fed from there into the water supply network. It is typical for the various plant units, stations and treatment plants to be separated by long distances and they are often unmanned as a consequence. It is therefore important to ensure that the components used –from the process control technology to the drive and automation technology, process instrumentation and power supply – are as sturdy and reliable as possible and work together perfectly.

Overview of the entire system

Overview of the entire system

Information about pump performance, current production volumes and quality data are important for staying up to date with the status of the components being used. Efficient operation and observation of system processes are key factors in being able to enjoy secure system operation and provide a swift and targeted response in the event of a breakdown. Telecontrol technology is used to comprehensively connect the local stations to the plant-wide automation, regardless of how far they are from each other.

Quickly identify leaks

Quickly identify leaks

The efficiency and cost-effectiveness of water transport and distribution systems is crucially dependent on the fast and reliable detection of leaks and on their accurate location. The amount of time before a leak is detected is critical for the prevention of potential damage, such as undermining of buildings. Leaks not only result in a loss of valuable drinking water that has been purified at high cost, but may also lead to substantial economic losses. Just how much action is needed becomes clear when we consider that about one-fourth of the world’s drinking water is lost through leakage.

Full energy transparency and optimization

Full energy transparency and optimization

Energy consumption is one of the main cost factors in water transport. Identifying and eliminating big energy consumers are among the main challenges in optimizing your system. Our intelligent products, solutions and services help you gain transparency with regard to your energy needs and to cut costs substantially.

Products, solutions, and services throughout the entire plant lifecycle

The parallelization and automation of work processes, their simplification and standardization, as well as digitalization and electrification are all important factors for improving the efficiency of your plant. Competing in the international market requires constant innovative strength and efficiency as well as increased productivity and quality – throughout the entire plant lifecycle. With our customized solutions, products, and services we help you achieve integrated plant management.

 Efficiency throughout the plant lifecycle starts with planning

Efficiency throughout the plant lifecycle starts with planning

It is vital to be working as cost-effectively as possible right from the planning phase. Innovative software and tools are important factors in speeding up the planning phase. Make optimal use of this potential, because saving time means saving money.

Reducing configuration time and effort

Reducing configuration time and effort


Operators of water supply networks are constantly facing new challenges due to growing time and cost pressures.
The planning and further development of an innovative, high-quality system landscape requires system-specific, easy-to-use planning tools. With ProTime PCS 7, you can convert your individual requirements and existing quantity structure into SIMATIC PCS 7 plant configurations that can then be ordered. This not only enables you to improve the quality of your system design but also significantly reduces the time required.

Fault-free configuration of automation engineering

Fault-free configuration of automation engineering

Errors in the selection of system components when automating a water supply network can result in delays and even disposal problems at the time of commissioning. Using the TIA Selection Tool, you can ensure error-free configuration without expert knowledge. You not only save time but also money. The TIA Selection Tool is free. The desktop and cloud versions permit cross-team cooperation with maximum flexibility.
