ABB: Boosting productivity and efficiency with smart automation solutions to improve water supply and security

ABB, a global leader in power and automation, will present trendsetting solutions at this year’s Singapore International Water Week 2016, demonstrating how its innovations can address water concerns and guarantee sustainable water security for Singapore and beyond, and aligning perfectly with the trade fair’s theme of Sharing and Co-creating Innovative Water Solutions.

In response to the Singapore government’s challenge to develop and provide innovations that can help the city state establish a robust and sustainable water supply, ABB will demonstrate how its broad portfolio and global domain competence helps customers to produce, transport, distribute, treat and utilize water efficiently, reducing energy consumption, minimizing losses and improving reliability of infrastructures and plants.

“Intelligent automation solutions, equipment and software enable plant operators to analyze their data more intelligently to boost productivity, reliability and efficiency, and all form part our concept of the Internet of Things, Services, and People,” said Johan de Villiers, Managing Director of ABB in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

“Singapore’s water industry is regarded as a pioneer of new water treatment technologies. At SIWW, we want to emphasize our passion and commitment to collaborating and partnering with the industry to ensure a water landscape that optimizes performance and productivity, service and security, and value and cost for all stakeholders.”

ABB will present practical, customer-focused solutions, such as smart protection relays, high efficiency motors and drives, intelligent motors control solutions and advanced measurement and analytics instruments. A key highlight will be its distributed control system, which features the convergence of information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT), and enables all intelligent devices installed within the wastewater process to communicate seamlessly with each other, thus yielding powerful intelligent data.

ABB has previously played a key role in the Changi water reclamation plant and the 48-kilometer long deep tunnel sewerage system (DTSS). This groundbreaking water project features ABB products extensively in the form of power and automation solutions that enable critical parts of the process to operate at the highest levels of energy efficiency and reliability.
