APC was chosen as the System Integrator for the project.
Customer objective and constraints:
Veolia was looking to increase throughput from 55 to 147 Ml/d at its Clareville site within 3 years, based on a 20 year DBO (Design, Build and Operate the plant) project.
II. SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION
Implementation methodology (main phases):
Solution overview (services, products, systems, architectures...) :
Schneider Electric provided a one-stop solution to refurbish the Clareville Waste Waster plant. The architecture included all Electrical Distribution by SE, all secure power by APC and all automation by SE which included Ethernet TCP/IP Modbus and Modicon M340s, Advantys STB, TeSysU, IP54 VSDs, Magelis HMI etc. I/O was distributed from a Modicon PLC using the STB Advantys. The STB Advantys and the PLC were connected via an Ethernet TCP IP Modbus, with Unity handling the automatic configuration of the STB. The pumps were controlled by Altivar 71 speed drives that were connected to the PLC by CAN Open. Altivar Input and outputs were also used as Distributed I/O. The TeSys U was integrated into the Advantys so mapping would be automatically completed by Unity and the PLC. The graphic interface Magelis was programmed using Vijeo software.
III. RESULTS / ACHIEVEMENT
Customer testimonies (Verbatim):
"We were delighted to be able to work in partnership with Schneider Electric. A bonus from my perspective as project manager was the ability of the framework agreement to provide me with constant pricing which I could develop my budget with and obviously the equipment quality and back up service is second to none with Schneider. For example we had a particular problem which we thought was the inverter drives on our sludge feed pumps, which we got the Schneider people in and through their work on site here we were able to identify the problem as being elsewhere in the actual pumps itself. But with their help, it meant we could rectify the problem very quickly and get the plant back to normal operation."
