Whether for the process industry or the production industry: regardless of the sector, fully integrated automation is the only basis for realising automation solutions that are perfectly tailored to each specific need. The experience we have gained in other applications, together with our proven product line, can be directly applied to the current development work and thus bring many benefits to the water industry.

Fully integrated automation provides the basis for uniform, efficient automation throughout the entire plant. In the case of wastewater treatment plants: from the pumping station to the activation tanks, from the beginning to the end and up to the drainage station.

Totally integrated automation offers numerous advantages throughout the entire lifecycle of a machine or plant - from the initial planning phase, through installation and commissioning, operation and maintenance, all the way to expansion and modernisation.

On the basis of fully integrated automation, we can implement solutions with excellent integration properties tailored to the specific needs of the water industry. varSuv energy-saving calculators make an important contribution to optimising the energy allocation of a plant. Thanks to TIA's system-oriented engineering environment and integrated communication and diagnostic options, plants benefit from this throughout their entire life cycle. In addition, Siemens continues to innovate to ensure the safety of your investment in plant retrofitting.

 

Advantages of fully integrated automation:

Installation and commissioning: The use of the same communication standards (e.g. PROFIBUS and PROFINET) plant-wide minimises the need for interfaces and at the same time simplifies the installation and commissioning process. Even plants with very complex structures can be realised with little effort.

Operation: Integrated communication maximises transparency throughout the entire plant. This means that the plant can respond more quickly and flexibly to changes in demand and take highly effective diagnostic measures. Unplanned stops can be minimised in this way. Integrating fully integrated automation also means: uniform operation of all stations, whether directly on the control system or via the operator panel.

Maintenance: Intelligent maintenance strategies enable you to detect, analyse and eliminate possible sources of error faster, even when remote maintenance is used. Modules can be replaced during the operation of many of our systems. The harmonisation of components also reduces the burden on maintenance engineers.

Modernisation and expansion: Existing plants are easily adapted to changing requirements, often without interrupting operations. Investment security is ensured to the greatest extent possible due to the continuity of the intensive development of our products and systems, which avoids many unnecessary changes in the system.
