About the Client

Celtic Anglian Water (CAW) provides world class water and waste treatment services to their clients in Ireland and the UK, by reliably delivering cost-effective operations. CAW’s Dublin operation is at the very heart of Dublin’s infrastructure providing waste water treatment to the cities businesses and residential homes across Dublin. Situated on Dublin’s coast the process plant operates continuously. Waste water passes through screens to remove paper, plastics and large solid material. Further settlement tanks allow solids to settle where material is then further treated to improve biological and chemical oxygen demand. A further ultraviolet disinfection process allows CAW to achieve Dublin’s coveted blue flag status for water quality and environmental management.

Project Scope

Opensoft Systems were consulted to provide guidance on the deployment of their virtualisation solution to provide system resilience to their critically important SCADA based control systems. Their SCADA system provides round the clock monitoring of the plants process variables and captures data used for environmental reporting. Failure of these systems could lead to loss of plant control. AVS redundancy facility provided immediate dual redundancy allowing either SCADA system to take control in the event of failure. Further precautions were implemented to allow the AVS server software to take regular system backups which facilitate the fast deployment of these systems to any PC compatible hardware, should this be required.
