Sustainable and efficient solution

Brazil’s largest wastewater treatment plant uses EcoStruxure to increase operational efficiencies: for every liter of recycled water they produce, a liter of drinking water is saved.
The Challenge
Aquapolo needed to:
  • Address a severe shortage of potable water for the local community
  • Meet the increasing demand for water for industrial use
  • Manage 20 different KPIs related to water quality and quantity
  • Reduce production costs
  • Improve operational efficiency
The Solution
Apps, Analytics and Services: EcoStruxure Augmented Operator Advisor, AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System*, AVEVA Historian*, expert services
Edge Control: Modicon M238 and M340 PLCs, AVEVA Plant SCADA*
Connected Products: Harmony HMI, Foxboro instrumentation, ConneXium switches
  • AVEVA Plant SCADA and AVEVA Historian control and capture information on 20 qualitative and quantitative parameters.
  • Foxboro sensors ensure accuracy of the readings around effluent entry into the reverse osmosis/ultra-filtration plant and send the information to the Modicon PLCs, which control the industrial water treatment, pumping stations, and reservoir operations.
  • Operators monitor the process locally via the Harmony HMI.
  • AVEVA Manufacturing Execution System supports invoice calculation.
* The Schneider Electric industrial software business and AVEVA have merged to trade as AVEVA Group plc, a UK listed company. The Schneider Electric and Life is On trademarks are owned by Schneider Electric and are being licensed to AVEVA by Schneider Electric.
The Results
By implementing a full EcoStruxure for Water and Wastewater solution, including leading-edge industrial software from AVEVA, Aquapolo realized:
  • 15% reduction in total production costs and improved efficiency
  • Improved quality control with real-time analysis of water quality
  • Real-time dynamic billing system
  • Better regulatory compliance to protect the environment
  • Capacity to deliver potable water for more than 500,000 residents
