A leading, drinking water treatment plant needed a new, upgraded Ethernet network infrastructure on their plant floor to provide greater access to plant information, maintain production, protect against unplanned interruptions or forced outages, and ensure regulatory compliance.
As a rule, industrial infrastructure requires more thought, identification and planning due to the variation of configured devices. There are critical components that it cannot operate without – programmable logic controllers, HMIs, network, and client and data collection systems. That is why TSI Turtle Services (TSI) started the program for the water treatment plant by performing an assessment of the core technology, and then documenting and implementing a plan for improvements.
The assessment focused on point of failures within the core Industrial Ethernet. Our site findings and recommendations included:
TSI engineers developed a standard for the plant floor through the Converge Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) initiative utilizing Cisco Systems and Rockwell Automation. This vendor partnership resulted in a complete line of industrial Ethernet switches (managed, network core, control panel/field switches), network media converters, redundant network cabling, and enhanced dual network power. TSI eliminated all single points of failure and improved overall system reliability.
One of our proven strengths is the implementation of operational environmental management programs to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements for utility, power generation and industrial facilities.
TSI scales support from individual plants to full enterprise-wide systems, our core expertise is in air program management and regulatory compliance. Our consultants routinely support over 100 fossil fired sources at utilities, government and municipal organizations, and independent power producers. These units include boilers operating on coal, natural gas and oil, simple/combined-cycle combustion turbines, and landfill gas fired boilers and combustion turbines.
The experts at TSI manage compliance with Federal and State regulations that require real-time emissions data and reporting. We provide full turnkey support for emissions QA/QC, Title V Compliance and CEM Reporting (State and Federal). We standardize reporting and compliance initiatives across a fleet of units, not plant-by-plant. We support the entire automation infrastructure up to the data acquisition systems (Intelligent platforms).
