Project Details

CE Group was awarded this project and undertook it as the principal contractor for the Design and Construction works. At the core of the project was the requirement to upgrade the plant’s control systems from several stand-alone elements, of which some were manually operated, into a distributed automated PLC / SCADA solution.

Partnerships with suitably experienced companies enabled us to perform the process and hydraulic design consultancy, as well as the mechanical design, manufacture and the commissioning of such. As part of this work brief, CE Group successfully completed the removal of the old Aeration Tower, removal and replacement of the existing asbestos water main (including dosing injection points), addition of Caustic, Alum and Chlorine Gas chemical dosing systems, automatic DN150 Filters Backwash Valving and sequencing, all alongside the control system upgrade.

The project was run under CE Group’s accredited HSEQ system to provide close controls to ensure the delivery of a safe, environmentally friendly and quality driven system to our client.
The project’s electrical aspects were all performed by CE Group including the integration of the new equipment into Seqwater’s network SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system providing full equipment control, redundancy, remote access, diagnostics, reporting and historian data trending.
