Citect, a provider of production process improvements, has been awarded a SCADA system upgrade project by the Nashville Metro Water Services (MWS) to provide engineering services and software in excess of $500,000. Citect partnered with Edison Automation to win the project. Edison will provide general automation support for the project.
The project scope involves an initial top-end SCADA software replacement of two older systems incorporating HSQ Technology (wastewater collection) and Wonderware software (water distribution). Future project stages will involve upgrading the communications and RTU hardware currently in place.
The system will use many of the new version 6.0 CitectSCADA features, including the Process Analyst and Web Client. With the Process Analyst, users can now better analyze disturbances to determine their root causes, preventing possible future problems. The Web Client offers zero maintenance, fully functional clients for CitectSCADA control systems that are viewed via Internet Explorer.
“We are excited that another major water/wastewater authority has chosen Citect for their long-term plans as well as their present needs. Citect and Edison continue a very successful partnership that is dedicated to helping Nashville Metro Water Services achieve their financial and operational objectives,” said Darren Trumeter, President, Citect Americas.
