UC5: CRITICAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT DECISION SUPPORT ENHANCED BY DISTRIBUTED, AI-ENHANCED EDGE AND CLOUD SOLUTIONS
The inclusion of cloud systems in WWTPs will benefit process control, improve water quality and lower the OPEX. The aggregation of data at the cloud tier will enable an aggregated cross-WWTP analysis that will enhance the analysis and obtention of insights by the operator and also lead to newer more advanced applications (predictive maintenance) that will result in a reduction of downtime, costs and a better service. Eventually, aggregating data from different facilities in a single management tool will allow obtaining comparative indicators between different facilities and improving failure detection, increase the understanding of water processes and, finally, lead to a better water quality. In this sense, the use case plans to transfer the current signals, laboratory measurements and the most important control loops from WWTP (such as critical events of industrial discharges) to the cloud. This way, critical equipment and critical quality and production KPIs will be monitored through advanced services and applications deployed in the cloud.
