SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC CASE STUDIES

  • Secure Network Information Readily Available To Enterprise Users

    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.

  • Water Utility Management To Avoid Flooding In A City Below Sea Level

    The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans is the water utility serving every household in the New Orleans city limits. The water utility is responsible not only for water treatment as well as sewer and wastewater disposal, but also drainage operations throughout the city.

  • How One City Optimized Energy Use And Capital Spending through Performance Contracting

    In 2012, the wastewater treatment plant in Denison, Texas, needed major renovations, as aging equipment and failed system components placed a significant burden on the city’s operating budget. Learn how the city leveraged performance contracting to fund the repairs and achieve more energy- and cost-efficient operations.

  • Upgrades to SCADA System Provides Critical Insight For Wastewater Treatment Plantuti

    By installing a new SCADA system with a single programmable automtion controller (PAC), Monroe County Pure Waters, NY, was able to identify that their main plants and collection systems had sufficient capacity. The new SCADA system allowed them to close several smaller remote plants, eliminating several small-stream discharge points and saving the County energy and other operational costs.   

  • Saving Lift Station Costs And Data Using DNP3

    Lee County, FL has a population exceeding 620,000 with 600 lift stations and water wells used to manage its water needs. Motorola MOSCAD RTUs were used to operate 476 lift stations but within five years the MOSCAD system working on the county trunk radio system would no longer be supported when the change was made from analog to digital radios. 

  • Blower Efficiency Enhanced With Variable Frequency Drives

    Newnan Utilities’ Wahoo Creek Facility is a three million gallon a day wastewater treatment facility which has won the Environmental Protection Agency’s Georgia, Southeast, and National Wastewater Treatment Plant of the Year Awards.

  • Louisiana City Continues Its Tradition Of Leading-Edge Water Treatment Facilities By Standardizing On CitectSCADA The City of Shreveport has been a landmark for water treatment facilities for over 100 years. Construction on the McNeill Street Pumping Station, which ran on steam-driven pumps, began in 1887.
  • Case Study: Hoover Dam Modernization Project First Of Its Kind Reclamation began computer (digital) automation of power generation in the early 1970s. In those early days, custom designs of automation systems were necessary because automation was new to the electric power industry, and very large specifications addressed even the smallest details. By Chau Nguyen, chief of engineering office, Hoover Dam and Terry Bauman, senior controls engineer, L&S Electric, Inc.
  • Case Study: New Technology Enhances Data Monitoring, Reduces Community Energy Bill Northwest of Hartford, Conn., are the towns of Simsbury, Avon and Granby. These towns share a history that began before the Revolutionary War, but in the 1970s, they became linked in another way: through the Simsbury Water Pollution Control Facility. This 3.8 million gallons per day (MGD)-rated facility processes about 2.2 MGD and receives 70 percent of its water from Simsbury, 25 percent from Avon and 5 percent from Granby. By Schneider Electric

Model 6 Motor Control Center (MCC) Video
The Model 6 Arc Resistant MCC minimizes the potential for personnel injury by containing and redirecting the arc energy out from the top of the motor control center. The MCC offers the smallest footprint on the market while still providing superior strength and protection.

Mark Leinmiller of Schneider Electric’s Water Wastewater Competency Center talks about the integral role energy plays in water, and the many ways utilities can benefit from optimization, oversight, and automation.

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.
