SCADA system to better monitor India city's water distribution network

Sponsored by


March 18, 2014 -- The city of Bangalore, India, has planned to receive a new SCADA system for its Centralized SCADA Monitoring Center, which will monitor the city's water distribution network and wastewater facilities. The technology will be provided by Yokogawa India Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, and will serve as the company's first order from a water municipality in India.

Yokogawa will deliver the FAST/TOOLS™ SCADA software and the STARDOM™ network-based control system, which will monitor all data from Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board's (BWSSB) water supply facilities, such as pumping stations, water and wastewater treatment plants, reservoirs, and a water supply network that transports water from the Cauvery River to the city.

Due to rapid industrial development and population growth in recent years, the city of Bangalore suffers from frequent water outages. Based upon the data that it will collect, the monitoring center will optimize the supply of water to the city and improve the operating efficiency of its facilities. Ultimately, the center will be integrated with the billing system. This project is receiving much attention in India given its progressive approach.

Yokogawa India will have overall responsibility for implementing the project, including engineering, installation and commissioning of software and instruments. Further, the endeavor is being funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency. The system will be introduced for the water supply utilities in May 2015, and its coverage will be expanded to include the wastewater treatment plants.
