Town of Carleton Place

Town of Carleton Place – SCADA / PLC Upgrade

Summa’s expertise in upgrading SCADA systems, situational awareness graphics and our understanding of municipal wastewater systems in addition to our expertise in design, networks, programming, installation, documentation, and commissioning operating facilities allowed for the successful completion of this project.

Background

The goal of this project was to replace obsolete or end of service life PLCs, SCADA hardware and UPS, and HMI software. The existing network requires an upgrade to ring topology. Control panels require workstation upgrades to allow HMI access. For data, programs, and applications back up, a NAS needs to be added to the system. The implementation has to minimize interruptions to the plant operation and data collection.

The Scope of the Project included:

  • Computers
  • SCADA Platform
  • Applications

Scope of Work – Computers, Platform and Applications

The goal was to deliver on schedule and on budget to meet and exceed the expectations of this major upgrade project.

Summa, as the general contractor, was responsible for the upgrade of the plant SCADA system to the latest Wonderware InTouch, Historian and new report generator. Scope of supply included computers, platform and applications (monitor, managed switch, UPS, printer, NAS).

The scope of the project was

  • Replacement of raw sewage pumps at Tupper Street pump station and installation of new instruments and control system
  • Construction of a new process building
  • Construction of two ISAM SBR trains and installation of related equipment
  • Installation of new pumps and gate in converted equalization tanks
  • Installation of new standby diesel generatorIn support of the above, associated electrical and instrumentation systems were updated and two (2) new PLC panels were required.

Scope of Work – Control Panels and Instrumentation

The goal was to deliver on schedule and on budget to meet and exceed the expectations of this upgrade project.

Summa was responsible for supplying SCADA software, hardware, and network equipment, along with the manufacturing and commissioning of two (2) PLC panels and the supply and commissioning of process instrumentation.

Town of Cobourg – Lucas Point WWTP

Lucas Point Wastewater Treatment Plant (Cobourg Plant #2)

Summa’s extensive experience in construction and upgrades of process automation systems in smaller wastewater facilities, in addition to good management in the areas of programming, sequencing and transitions, and commissioning allowed for trouble free continuous operation of the plant during the transition and the successful completion of the project.

Background

The Town of Cobourg Lucas Point facility was built in 1984 and had a capacity upgrade in 1992.

Most of the then existing Control System was 20+ years old and based mostly on obsolete Allen Bradley PLC-5 PLCs communicating over Data Highway+. The SCADA software was InTouch Wonderware. Control panels exist in the main control room and four [4] process areas. There was no plant-wide network installed in this facility.

The Town undertook a Control System upgrade with work commencing in 2014

The goals of the upgrade were to bring the plant up to current technology, functionality and performance standards to improve the efficiency and reliability of the Control System. During the upgrade disruptions in any given process area must be kept to a minimum.

Summa took on overall responsibility for this project as General Contractor. The Town did not have current or reliable electrical drawings or process narrative for this facility. Summa had to reverse engineer the control system to be able to begin the upgrade process.

Scope of Work – Control System/Network

Summa was responsible for supplying, retrofitting, and commissioning new PLC and remote I/O hardware in the existing control panels, along with the installation of a fibre-optic network backbone to facilitate plant-wide communication. Programming responsibilities included all PLC and SCADA programming, testing, commissioning, along with the installation and configuration of a new Plant Historian and Remote Alarm Notification system.
