WTP SCADA UpgradeDue to annual support costs for the WTP’s HMI-SCADA software and the upcoming need to upgrade control servers due to age, the City decided to consider switching SCADA packages to mitigate cost.
AE2S provided capital and annual support cost comparisons for competitive software packages and showed the conversion had a return on investment of less than two years.
The project consisted of procurement and setup of redundant control servers, redevelopment and deployment of a new HMI-SCADA system, thorough system testout and troubleshooting, and SCADA system transfer and startup services at the WTP.
