Practical Tip: Standard And 4.0 Equipment For Modernization And New Construction Of Storm Water Basins – Part 2 Of 2

Focus: Precipitation Data, Overflow Measurement And Network Management

The construction of storm water basins is certainly one of the most important measures for water protection. The future-proof equipment of a storm basin is more than ever a demanding task due to digitalization. The compliance with many of the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive for storm water basins and the laws, regulations and DWA worksheets for better environmental protection is practically impossible, even with a high level of manpower. On the one hand, the use of future-proof IT and automation makes it possible to meet the standard requirements. On the other hand, the operational safety is considerably improved and the operational convenience is maximized.
The installation of a future-proof storm water basin requires many specialists under one roof. When modernizing an existing pool, the existing structure can be significantly upgraded with 4.0 technology and equipment to make it become FuturePROOF!

Choose a partner with a lot of experience and a complete offer for IT and automation in all equipment areas of a storm water basin!

In the Corona crisis, the weak points of an organization have become more and more transparent. The shortage of human power is increasing. As a result of forward-looking actions – or better automation – routine work in water management is already being processed in an operationally reliable manner. Personnel are concentrating on planning and control or on other important tasks.
Since precipitation, especially in the increasing frequency of heavy rain, is the main cause of fluctuations in water volumes in water infrastructures, the use of actual and forecasting precipitation data is mandatory for proactive actions. With the portal NiRA.web, not only are these data provided but also initiate measures at an actuator that serve a predetermined goal. To do so, NiRA NiRA leverages experience and integrates it using artificial intelligence for continuous improvement of specific actuators.

Use precipitation data to relieve staff, reduce energy consumption and protect residents

Supervisory authorities are increasingly requiring accurate documentation of the water retention and discharge behavior of storm water basins on the basis of federal state regulations and directives. Without automation of the entire process, this is a challenge. Is a precise solution only available at a high price? – EMA is the most cost-effective method to obtain reliable measurement values, transparent, accountable data of overflow quantities in storm water basins. The system is characterized by

  • ex-works product or individual application calibration,
  • the use of scientific methods and user-friendly implementation
  • as well as standard-compliant automated reports

Use the most cost-effective system with calibration and automated, standard-compliant reporting for overflow measurements

All information from a sewer network flows together in a management system in order to maximize the use of the storm water basin in the sewer network-wastewater treatment plant system. This information is coordinated with other reservoirs and technical facilities in order to achieve goals today for the smart city, region or municipality of the future – from reservoir management, to flow control, to flood management.

The IntelliNet is the mastermind of this management system. It also aligns conflicting goals within a sewer network and provides an overview and control in increasingly complex networks.

Benefit from network management with the highest level of automation
