Our client, as part of Asset Upgrade Scheme, engaged CHG Group to modernise the control system and associated hardware for a critical drinking water reservoir. Key considerations for the project were Safety, Reliability, Availability and Maintainability alongside strict timescales with demanding quality requirements.
CHG rapidly mobilised an experienced Design, Build & Commissioning Team including; Project Management, Project Engineers, Design Engineers, Civil Engineers, ICA Technicians, Approved Electricians and Apprentices. CHG supported the Engineering Team with Health & Safety and Human Factors specialists to create a best-in-class design.
In the short timescale available we consulted, captured requirements, designed and installed the power and control system for this critical asset bringing the project in on time and budget.
As part of the project, we created a P&ID, the full electrical design, interface design to SCADA and PLC programming and associated wiring to hardware and I/O in the field. CHG installed improved RTS Outstation communications and operator interface, both centrally and at the remote location.
A new LOI Unit was installed, providing local access to the status of the service reservoir and associated equipment, with local facilities to adjust control setpoints, review and manage plant alarms. Complete all associated electrical install works and worked to commission all new actuators and controls.
The project duration was 16 weeks, however CHG employed Design for Installation techniques to minimise downtime to enable a 24hour changeover with commissioning.
