Veolia Water Technologies UK introduces the future of real-time optimisation, AQUAVISTA™ Plant, improving its suite of digital solutions to help water treatment and water management professionals respond to environmental, compliance and market challenges.

Following a number of highly successful implementations on projects across Europe, VWT UK has introduced its AQUAVISTA™ Plant system. The solution provides real-time performance optimisation of wastewater treatment facilities and networks. It enables the enhancement of hydraulic and biological capacity as well as optimising energy usage, chemical consumption and sludge production of the plant. Delivering a true “system thinking” approach to wastewater treatment.

AQUAVISTA™ Plant provides advanced data analysis and interpretation for real-time optimisation of water and wastewater treatment equipment and processes. A flexible solution, it can be implemented on installations of any size from a single technology to a range of assets across multiple sites and networks. Suitable for new or existing plants and both VWT UK and non-VWT UK products, the digital solution can be integrated seamlessly with your equipment, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) or programmable logic controllers (PLC) equipment. 

Sensors are installed on all relevant equipment and the data from this is then fed back to the AQUAVISTA™ Plant system where a suite of intelligent algorithms and machine learning will calculate optimised set points and make them available for the PLC’s to execute. Intuitive user interfaces will support the operators, the process engineers and the plant managers to continuously improve the performance of plants.

The data is treated securely in the cloud and is accessible to users at any time, from any location and on any connected device through a single private portal. Advanced cyber-security is a critical element that is fully integrated at every stage from data acquisition and transfer to aggregation, analysis and reporting.

The versatility of AQUAVISTA™ Plant means it can be applied to industrial and municipal treatment plants and sewer networks. AQUAVISTA™ Plant can help optimise the lifespan of assets and increase capacity, often without additional investment in plants. As such it can lower operational costs and minimise or eliminate further capital investment.

AQUAVISTA™ Plant has already delivered real benefits to hundreds of wastewater treatment facilities. It typically delivers 20% to 40% savings in overall OPEX, up to 40% more biological capacity and up to 100% more hydraulic capacity as well as improved effluent quality from the wastewater treatment and a reduction in number and quantity of combined sewer overflows (CSOs).

William Jeal, Business Manager at Veolia Water Technologies UK commented: “Water management professionals today face a wide range of environmental, regulatory and economic challenges. Embracing innovation and new working practices is key to ensuring that resources are managed in the most effective way.

The introduction of AQUAVISTA™ Plant to the UK market will provide customers with a new level of control and management of plants and processes. This expands and strengthens our digital offering, an area where our expertise and experience allows us to deliver market leading solutions.”
