Integrated Water System in Poland
RWiK Bialogard was responsible for the construction of the new water network and modernization of the existing water facilities and sewage networks in the municipalities of Bialogard, Biesiekierz, Bobolice, Karlino, Polczyn Zdroj, Rabino and Tychowo. The results were significant.
RWiK Bialogard waterworks company was formed by the consolidation of several local units responsible for water treatment and wastewater management in the area of 8 provinces in basin of Parseta river in Poland. Currently, rWiK Bialogard is responsible for an area of nearly 1200 km2.
Municipalities located in the upstream of the river initiated the construction and modernization project. The main goal was cleaning up all water in the river merging Parseta. The process was dependent on the integrated co-operation. Due to the complexity of the system and the large size of the area, the project was divided into 14 contracts. The value of the project was estimated to be around 100 million euros.
Horner APG produced the pumping stations equipped with PLC controllers, and by Invensys Wonderware developed the SCADA based application monitoring system. Data from 392 objects are collected via SATELLINE-3AS NMS radio modems with Network Management System software. SATEL’s local distributor, ASTOR Sp. z o.o. delivered all components for the project.
Significant improvements in every field
The implementation of the project made it possible to deliver water and treat wastewater in developing areas. Increasing the amount of wastewater supplied to treatment plants improved their efficiency from 40% up to 70%. Also the quality of water supplied to residents is now much better – 100% of the water meets the standards.
Downtimes in water supply are now eliminated completely and losses are significantly reduced. Everything is well protected so that even the loss of the PLC controller does not stop the system, thanks to the double, and in some cases triple control, and the possibility for manual control in emergency situations.
Radio modem system reduced the time used in diagnosis and troubleshooting. Now it is possible to monitor all 392 facilities including sewage pumping stations and networks, water treatment plants and sewage treatment plants.
Effective and safe water supply is extremely important for all of us.
Insta is a market leader in Finland in water supply automation: three million Finns live in areas covered by automation systems delivered by Insta. SATEL radio modems are often used to transfer measurement and control data in these automation systems.
