The Full SCADA Deal: The Benefits Of Adopting A Complete SCADA System Over A Sophisticated RTU-Based SolutionSource: Trihedral Engineering Limited
For over a decade, The Bahamas Water and Sewerage Company (BWSC) faced significant service challenges on the Island of New Providence. These included a lack of centralized monitoring and control for the island’s primary water treatment and distribution system, as well as limited reporting, alarming and remote access.
In phase one of this two phase project, the utility contracted Star Controls to expand their MOSCAD® Remote Telemetry Unit (RTU) network and install a fully-featured Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) application based on VTScada™ software from Trihedral. In this article Laurie Kusmaul and Tzvi Magril of Star Controls describe how SCADA is one component helping to save the utility millions each year in lost water.
