Reliably operate wastewater pump stations

Seamless disposal

Seamless disposal

To operate widely distributed, decentralized pump stations more reliably, all parts of the plant must be integrated into a consistent, end-to-end system. That’s why it’s important that the components used be rugged, reliable and also work together perfectly – from process control technology and drive and automation engineering on to the power supply and complete networking. To enable you as plant operator to always be up to date on the component status, it is essential that you always have an overview of relevant information: operational messages, pump performance, current flow rate, quantity data and analysis data. Plant processes can thus be efficiently controlled and monitored and integrated into a plant-wide automation.

Highlights

Ensure the right pressure

Wastewater pump stations play an extremely important role in water supply. They pump wastewater via the sewage network to the treatments plants. Because pump stations and treatment plants are frequently far apart from one another, they are often unmanned. We support you as plant designer and operator with an industry-specific range of products. You benefit from consistent process management, simple and user-friendly data management and consistent, end-to-end engineering for central and remote sub-plants.

Shorter commissioning time through integrated plant engineering

Global competition, dynamic market requirements, environmental compatibility and statutory requirements: International competitive pressure is growing as far as plant engineering is concerned – including the water and wastewater industry! That’s why processing times must be shortened and project costs reduced. With our integrated engineering, we offer you as plant designer and operator maximum data consistency through an optimized combination of plant design, distributed control system and device configuration – from the planning phase to automation and operation.

Efficient energy management for pump operation

Efficient energy management for pump operation

Pump stations are primarily needed where differences in altitude within a waste water network are insufficient or waste water from a lower altitude must be pumped to a higher altitude to ensure a seamless supply. This is an energy-intensive process, which makes energy consumption one of the biggest cost factors. One of your main tasks as plant designer and operator is to identify “energy hogs” in order to optimize your plant. Our intelligent products, solutions and services help you to achieve transparency in terms of your energy demand and significantly reduce your costs.

Simple control and monitoring of complex plants

Simple control and monitoring of complex plants

Waste water pumping stations are often unmanned and are managed remotely from a central control room. The main challenge therefore lies in the maintenance and modernization of PC-based control systems. The virtual control technology, in particular, offers clear advantages: the entire control system server infrastructure is consolidated in a computer center. We facilitate your entry into future-oriented technologies with our lifecycle service that covers everything you need for a virtualization solution – all from a single source.

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
