Water and Wastewater

Water and wastewater companies operate critical infrastructure.
AVEVA Select enables them to run their systems and facilities efficiently.

Efficient engineering, optimized facilities

Utility companies who purify wastewater or produce clean drinking water are constantly under a microscope and have to deal with regulations and strict supervision of their services. AVEVA offers these companies the tools they need for efficient engineering and fully optimised facilities so that they can continue to ensure a clean, uninterrupted, affordable water supply.

The Challenge to Utilities

As an operator of a water or wastewater utility you have a lot on your plate. Not only are you required to provide reliable and affordable water and wastewater services, you must also be compliant with a number of government regulations and ensure that your operations are sustainable.
Water utilities require more efficient methods of engineering, optimization of energy supply, and contextualized compliance monitoring as they seek to expand availability of water to the general population at an affordable price.
Global challenges abound. How can engineers create and reticulate clean and affordable water and wastewater services in developing countries using standard technologies? How can engineers balance the new cost equation between energy and water quality that energy-hungry reclaiming and desalination technologies introduce? What intelligent infrastructure is available to allow automation vendors to deliver real-time data for multi-user operations decision-making?

Engineering Efficiency and Continuity

The greater the number of  plants an engineer has to design, control and rollout, the less effective are traditional procedural and list-oriented engineering tables. Replacing those with online template object-oriented systems can result in dramatic savings.

Easy Knowledge Transfer

One of the key benefits in encapsulating design, parameterization and visualization in an object methodology is the ease with which knowledge and understanding can be transferred from year to year and from older to younger generations.

A Single Engineering Environment

Recent engineering system advances enable design, simulation, checkout and deployment using a single environment. This makes it easier for lead and contract engineers to clone and extend  plant models consistently and with minimal errors and design interaction.


Describing the fundamental model of the plant in terms of its functionality and data structure, augmented with appropriate visualization, enables use of reusable objects without data degradation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I reduce Operation and Energy Costs Associated With Water Distribution Activities?

Water Network Management is an operations system that expands your water distribution network SCADA capabilities. The software forecasts the behaviour of the distribution network, and anticipates the impact of planned and unplanned events before they happen. By using real-time data, Water Network Management considers the ever-changing condition of the network, so your actions are always based on the most updated situation.

How do I make the most of my water network?

Advanced water utilities monitor their distribution networks, acquiring data from network critical points (production and storage points, inlets of distribution zone, etc.) and making them available in real time to operators in a centralized SCADA. However, a SCADA control typically provides point data and does not provide information about the rest of the network.
