Designed by SUEZ, smart centres are equipped with smart, responsive digital equipment which provide city authorities with a global vision of their water and sewerage services. The sensors installed on the facilities (networks and plants) are used to collect and analyse the data in order to facilitate control in real time.
This new generation of smart control centres has three major objectives: excellence, sharing and service. In a single location, the control center consolidates services, know-how and smart technologies, through which SUEZ delivers:
Providing consumers and local authorities with data is one of the top priorities of SUEZ, which proposes:
The smart centres call on smart technologies to manage networks and plants. These are genuine decision aids as they collect real time data and report the necessary actions to the decision makers. Management can then assign the most appropriate maintenance teams.
An incident or an alert? Using smart technologies, the smart centre can localise and identify them. The tools plan interventions, contact all applicable parties for permissions, activate teams in order to ensure the quickest and most efficient intervention possible. In-depth knowledge of the operating conditions of the facilities and networks also allows for greater security in the event of a crisis, by anticipating the control strategies using predefined scenarios.
In order to make the most of the mass of data, SUEZ developed AQUADVANCED®, a unique software suite that addresses all the issues of water management, from the real-time management of wells, to the control of the disposal of wastewater and rainwater into the natural environment.
Based on the collection of multi-source data, digital modelling and the real-time processing of information, the three software applications dedicated to water management address the needs of drinking water operators: daily control of operations, detection of leaks, monitoring the water quality, security of operations, conservation of the infrastructures, reduction of operating costs, energy efficiency, etc.
AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage is made up of three complementary modules that combine field measurements, external data, digital models and an optimisation engine that permanently monitor the sewerage system, flood prevention, the protection of the natural environment and the optimisation of the existing regulation and treatment infrastructures.
The smart control centres are a concentrate of smart technologies that guarantee:
