Outstanding contribution to digitalisation and efficiency at Global Water Awards

The ‘Water Technology Company of the Year’ category recognises the company that made the most significant contribution to the water and digital technology field. Schneider Electric was acknowledged in this category for its breakthrough work with EcoStruxure™ Automation Expert V21.2, which manages the full automation lifecycle for water and wastewater operations. EcoStruxure Automation Expert is the world’s first software-centric industrial automation system. It is a game changer in the drive toward sustainability for water and wastewater plant operations.

The company was also recognised for additional capabilities, including its joint venture with Suez to leverage the complementary expertise of both companies to co-develop and market innovative digital solutions for the complete water cycle. Through this venture, Schneider Electric added AQUADVANCED® software to its smart water portfolio. It has implementations planned in Italy and Argentina. Also part of the recognition was the deployment of AVEVA’s Unified Operations Center for Water – a system connecting information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) for enterprise-wide business optimisation in water companies.

Schneider Electric making a difference

Schneider Electric has continued to disrupt the automation market for the water industry, leading to Royal HaskoningDHV naming Schneider Electric as its preferred global supplier for its Nereda® wastewater treatment solution. In this solution, Schneider Electric will combine the capabilities of EcoStruxure Automation Expert with the Nereda technology. The plan is to develop the next generation of Nereda process control. This control system improves plant process efficiency. It allows wastewater customers to complete lifecycle management, seamless IT/OT services integration, and improved system diagnostics for their automation systems.

“Our ANZ teams have equally great innovations on the horizon. We are constantly seeking partnerships that will enable us to work together to build a more sustainable Water Industry,” adds Brad.

The awards ceremony celebrated the industry’s greatest achievements over the previous year. It acknowledges the initiatives and companies in the water, wastewater and desalination sectors.
