Royal HaskoningDHV and Schneider Electric collaborate on next generation process control for Nereda wastewater treatment plants
Industrial and domestic wastewater customers to have complete lifecycle management, seamless integration of IT/OT services, and improved system diagnostics
Royal HaskoningDHV is pleased to announce that Schneider Electric is a global preferred supplier for its Nereda® wastewater treatment solution. Schneider Electric is the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation. Royal HaskoningDHV is an independent consultancy that integrates digital technologies and software solutions to design, safeguard, and maintain the built environment — from infrastructure, mobility and buildings to energy, water supplies and industrial sites. Nereda is the sustainable and cost-effective wastewater treatment technology that purifies water using the unique features of aerobic granular sludge. With over 90 projects completed or being delivered across the world, Nereda is a well-established technology for both municipal and industrial use.
As a preferred supplier, Schneider Electric will combine the capabilities of its EcoStruxure™ Automation Expert solution, the world’s first universal automation system, with the Nereda technology to develop the next generation of Nereda Process Control. The control system will improve plant process efficiency and allow wastewater customers to have complete lifecycle management, seamless integration of IT/OT services, and improved system diagnostics for their automation systems.
“We are delighted to be supporting Nereda and its award-winning wastewater treatment technology,” said Alain Dedieu, Water and Wastewater president, Schneider Electric. “EcoStruxure Automation Expert takes a software-centric, native IT/OT convergence approach. This makes it easy to integrate advanced IT applications, tools, and technologies, and allows greater hardware flexibility and asset-based maintenance — all of which improves sustainability and resilience in wastewater treatment plants.”
Nereda is known for its integrated software controller through which plant operators can directly view plant performance along key parameters and explore resources for optimization. This solution will facilitate project execution and plant operation onsite by streamlining the implementation, testing, and updating of the Nereda control software on any plants. This new partnership with Schneider Electric is an important step to advance the Nereda technology. Additionally, the partnership opens the possibilities for leveraging digital integrations to further optimize plant performance.
