CHG Group was hired by our client as part of their Asset Upgrade Scheme to modernize the control system and related hardware for a critical drinking water reservoir. Safety, reliability, availability, and maintainability were key priorities for the project, which also had strict time constraints and high-quality standards.
To tackle this project, CHG quickly assembled a team of experienced professionals, including project managers, engineers, technicians, electricians, and apprentices. We also brought in health and safety and human factors specialists to support the engineering team and create a top-quality design.
In a short amount of time, we consulted with the client, gathered requirements, designed and installed the power and control system for the critical asset, completing the project on time and within budget. This included creating a P&ID, the full electrical design, interface design for SCADA and PLC programming, and wiring for hardware and I/O in the field. We also installed an improved RTS Outstation communication and operator interface at both the central location and a remote location.
As part of the project, we installed a new LOI unit to provide local access to the status of the service reservoir and related equipment, with the ability to adjust control setpoints and manage plant alarms. We also completed all necessary electrical installation work and worked to commission all new actuators and controls.
The project duration was 16 weeks, but we used design-for-installation techniques to minimize downtime and enable a 24-hour changeover with commissioning.
