Water model demonstrates use of digital solutions in real scenarios

Date: 28.05.2022Source: Siemens

At this year’s IFAT, Siemens will be showcasing how digitalisation and automation are helping to meet these requirements and promote and optimise sustainable water management.

Siemens will show real application scenarios of these technologies live on a water model. The model represents a typical pump application from the water or wastewater plant. In various scenarios, Siemens is demonstrating how, for example, pump blockages can be avoided, processes can be optimised with the digital twins, and how the industrial safety of water systems can be ensured as critical infrastructure.

With Siemens Water (SIWA) applications specially developed for the water/wastewater industry, operators optimise energy efficiency, avoid water losses, reduce water pollution, and implement predictive maintenance measures. Depending on the different requirements that plant operators face, Siemens offers applications for use in the cloud and for edge. Through edge computing, for example, large amounts of data can be collected and evaluated promptly in order to then make a prediction for scenarios or system behaviour.

In addition, some of the SIWA applications are based on an AI algorithm. With the help of the AI Applications plant operators can intelligently monitor and optimise drinking water networks and wastewater systems and react quickly and proactively to challenges such as contamination of groundwater by blockages in sewers or leaks.
