Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, recently announced the release of StruxureWare for Water, a unique suite of applications that gives full visibility into energy, operation and process control across the entire water cycle.
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC CASE STUDIES
Portland Water Bureau, more than 100 years old, is a public water utility located in Portland, Oregon. It is responsible for the supply, treatment, and delivery of water to about 935,000 consumers in parts of Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties in Oregon — nearly one-fourth of the population of the state. This service involves approximately 35 billion gallons of water annually. In 2011-12, more than 566,000 of those consumers were retail customers served directly by the utility. Another 368,000 consumers are served by the utility’s wholesale customers, including suburbs of Portland, water districts, and private water companies.

Todd Schnick: We’re coming to you live, from Dallas, Texas. This is day two of AWWA ACE 2012 and Water Online Radio. I’m your host, Todd Schnick, joined by my colleague, Todd Youngblood. Todd, we’ve got lunch, and we’re ready to go for the next half of the day.
Todd Youngblood: Too much bunny food at lunch. We got there too late, and all the good stuff, all the meat got picked over. I don’t know what was left.
Todd Schnick: A lot of fellows in this hall. We were left with all the green stuff. That was no good, but we’re kicking off the afternoon section with a really exciting guest. I want to welcome Mark Leinmiller, who’s a segment manager for the Water Wastewater Competency Center for Schneider Electric. Welcome to the show, Mark.
Mark: Thank you very much.
