Efficiently operate water pump stations

Water pump station

A more reliable flow

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 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 all relevant information: operational messages, pump performance, current flow rate, quantity data and analysis data. Plant processes can thus be efficiently controlled and monitored and seamlessly integrated into plant-wide control and automation technologies.

Ensure the right pressure

Pump stations play an extremely important role in water supply. They deliver water and feed it into the drinking water network. Because pump stations and treatment plants are frequently far apart from each 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

Pump stations are primarily needed where differences in altitude within a water supply network are insufficient or drinking water from a body of water at 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 guzzlers” 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

Drinking 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

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 pump stations 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 pump station 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.
