Remote Control of Waste Water


Our Client

Reaman Industries, Samoa Water Authority

Project Scope

Reaman Industries won the tender to build a waste water treatment facility for Apia, Samoa’s largest city. We won the automation subcontract.

The CR Solution

Our work had to be particularly thorough as we were building a solution in New Zealand for overseas commissioning. We developed a robust solution that considered the remote location of the plant without compromising support.

The automation of the plant required a PLC in conjunction with a local operator interface, an overall monitoring solution and a SCADA.

The Result

SWA now has a fully automated plant with a comprehensive alarm history for faults, and trending history for operations while unattended. The plant requires minimal management due to the level of automation. Any critical alarms send remote messages to support in real time. The site can also be supported remotely over the internet.
