In the early 1990s, a new wastewater treatment plant was built in Ujezd to provide the treatment of water from the sewer system. The clean water is then released to the river Litava. The plant underwent complete reconstruction in 2010. The main reason for the renovation was that the plant's capacity was insufficient. What is more, the treatment process did not meet the current strict environmental standards. In addition, a new visualization and control system designed to monitor the treatment process was also installed.
WAGO PLCs were chosen to control the treatment process. One controller is connected to the operator's PC via Ethernet. Communication between the devices is provided via the MODBUS-TCP protocol.
Clear visualization is provided by the Reliance SCADA/HMI system, which is installed on the PC located in the plant's operator room. Using several well-arranged visualization screens, Reliance allows for monitoring and controlling the whole treatment process from the plant intake through biological treatment to the sludge dewatering process. For some devices, a number of engine hours can be set up in the Reliance system. After exceeding the limit, an alarm message displaying the number of completed engine hours appears on the PC's screen. Additionally, all operating data is automatically stored in the Reliance database and can be used for future analysis.
