Water and energy are inextricably linked and equally important to preserve for future generations. As population growth continues to skyrocket and water scarcity increases, the world is faced with a two-sided dilemma: producing more energy with less water and distributing clean water to more people using less energy.
Now more than ever, optimizing the entire water cycle, from physical level, to operations and enterprise level, is of paramount importance for global sustainability. And among all the mission-critical elements of water and wastewater plant operations, power and cooling optimization is one of the most important for business and healthy global societies.Power availability key to water business continuity
A high level of control and automation is inherently important in water and wastewater operations which is why guaranteed end-to-end power availability is critical throughout all stages of water treatment and distribution.
Schneider Electric™ offers robust data center infrastructure and critical power solution for the water industry. The water authorities are maximizing power availability for all type of process-critical applications like PLCs, SCADA, Critical Pumps, Remote Telemetry Units and specific integration of the UPS in the power architecture of U.V Treatment Plants to secure the standards.
When combined with UPS protection and intelligent power monitoring systems, Schneider Electric secure power and cooling solutions can help water plants to:
- Save up to 30% in energy costs
- Maintain the flow of clean, safe drinking water for communities
- Protect power-critical applications such as ultraviolet disinfection, valve pulsing in the membrane system, and operation of controllers on remote panels
Whether designing a customized or turnkey system, Schneider Electric engineers leverage their expertise in building and configuring power and cooling solutions to meet high international quality standards.
