How upgrading to a modern DCS helped one facility streamline engineering and leverage mobile technology

In this case history, a Denver wastewater facility implements a modern DCS platform for improved maintenance and operations.

New Call-to-action

For a greenfield wastewater treatment facility currently starting up near Denver, the city's Metro Wastewater Reclamation District desired an advanced process automation system that could optimize operations and improve maintenance procedures while simultaneously meeting compliance objectives. They turned to engineering firm CH2M, which designed and implemented a virtualized PlantPAx system from Rockwell Automation to accomplish these goals.

John Costello, west regional technology lead-automation for CH2M, together with colleague Tyler Nading, water engineer, reviewed the facility's new productivity-enhancing automation environment at the Rockwell Automation Process Solutions User Group (PSUG) meeting.
