The whole potable water system of Istanbul is managed via a central command system called SCADA. All data on occupancy rate of water resources, rainfall, pressure values in potable water lines, water value in storage tanks are transferred instantly to the center, which can directly address to the system. ISKI Kagıthane Potable Water Treatment Plant consists of interrelated systems working and interacting in a variety of ways. Some of these systems operated automatically, others were operated manually by ISKI staff.
This type of control method had two disadvantages:
1. The need for different expert personnel for each system, and complexity on inter-system coordination.
2. The absence of any energy monitoring and management system in the facility prevented the energy consumption and electrical malfunctions from being addressed efficiently.
ISKI Kagıthane Potable Water Treatment Plant can treat 728.000 m³ of water per day, which corresponds to 25% of Istanbul’s water consumption. The plant was founded in 1956 and since then has come up with many renovation projects to meet the technological standards. In 2019, as part of the continuous
redevelopment of the plant, ISKI decided to address Kontrolmatik for the upgrade of all the automation systems (adapting PLCs to the field to obtain automatic control of manual systems), specifically the renovation of the central SCADA system, which can manage 20 systems that are operated manually and 5 with their own control systems. In addition, within the scope of the same work, the management of ISKI Kagıthane had the necessity to monitor the process areas of the whole facility with CCTV system and to integrate all the equipment of the field with the ISKI central asset management system.
With the control room built by Kontrolmatik, ISKI Kagıthane staff is able not only to control in real-time all the processes that are displayed on the video wall with the CCTV system, but also to constantly monitor and track, thanks to Movicon, all the water treatment processes that occur in the buildings. Choosing Movicon, reports of all incoming and outgoing sources used in the system are now generated automatically at the end of the day and production improvements can be made accordingly. The establishment of the database system required for the inclusion of all equipment in the plant’s ISKI’s Kuvars® asset management system has been completed. This allows the monitoring of the maintenance planning, fault recording and working time of all devices in the plant. Kontrolmatik has decided to use Movicon SCADA by Progea as it has shown stability and reliability when using many different communication drivers simultaneously, together with a very fast and skilled technical support team. The modernized facility features more than 80 PLCs in various machinery and process equipment such as filters, decanters, pump stations and energy monitoring points, all connected to the central Movicon SCADA through communication protocols such as Twincat ADS, Modbus, Siemens, etc. The information received from the field is recorded in the SQL database and the operator, after loggingin, is allowed to create reports of this information in
certain formats at any time. ISKI Kagıthane treatment plant and all its subsystems are controlled through Movicon SCADA. While the solution continues to work without interruptions, Kontrolmatik’s together with Progea staff guarantees full support to the facility.
Movicon™ 11 is the secure and reliable solution for all those companies needing to develop and maintain supervisory, control and data acquisition software applications with operator interface where data can be accessed remotely or from mobile systems.
