Driven by the demand for digitalisation and automation in the water industry, Royal HaskoningDHV and Mitsubishi Electric Europe are joining forces to develop specialized automation controls. This will facilitate the implementation of smart water solutions, enabling water utilities to optimise the performance and efficiency of their plants. Royal HaskoningDHV and Mitsubishi Electric’s combined knowledge and experience in the global water sector, make the two companies a perfect fit for developing the platforms required for digitally connected and sustainable water infrastructure.

Digital transformation

Sander Zweers, CCO Software at Royal HaskoningDHV, commented: “As part of this strategic partnership we integrate our software solution Aquasuite with Mitsubishi Electric’s high-end hardware. It’s great to be partnering and bring together our hardware and software expertise as it will foster better and faster results for our clients. Our system-thinking approach will lower the life-cycle costs of assets and help to create the utility of the future.”

Hartmut Pütz, President, Factory Automation EMEA, Mitsubishi Electric Europe B.V. added: “The challenges within the water industry place some of the most stringent requirements on automation systems. These need to provide absolute reliability in all operating conditions, with control architectures often implemented over vast sites. Digital transformation is an imperative within the sector, and we are looking forward to working with Royal HaskoningDHV to address this market requirement, building on our combined strengths and knowledge to deliver efficient solutions to water and wastewater treatment companies.”

Virtual plant operator

The solution will integrate Royal HaskoningDHV Digital's Aquasuite software (part of Royal HaskoningDHV), that includes autopilot and analyst functionality, with the high-end automation hardware from Mitsubishi Electric. This will provide end-users with actionable insights to ensure optimal efficiency of plant operations. Predictive analytics are used to automatically steer and optimise the processes, assets and entire network. This virtual operator, therefore, brings convenience and peace of mind, which will minimise outages and can reduce human error. As Aquasuite is an agnostic software, customers can benefit from a smooth connection with all their existing systems.
