WaterSPOT is the world’s only drinking water simulator - used for operator training, process optimisation and education. Tested at several drinking water companies in the Netherlands, it combines state-of-the-art water quality and quantity models to deliver accurate results. The WaterSPOT simulator can be used for operator training and process optimisation. Using simulation helps you understand purification processes at a level of detail that is unavailable with measurements in your plant. The simulation can provide more detailed data, when you need it.
Tangible benefits from operator training are:
- More efficient operations with respect to energy and additives consumption.
- Better managed upsets and disturbances.
Non-tangible assets are:
- Improved skills
- Improved knowledge
- Knowledge retention
- Training of staff in new operations environment when upgrading e.g. the process automation system.
The International Simulator is a general purposes simulator for operator training and education for operators, technologists and students. The International Simulator is ideal to gain, maintain and extend knowledge and skills in typical purification processes such as filtration, aeration and chlorine dosing.
The Custom Simulator is built on the USE platform, which is a toolbox for real time data streams and events. The toolbox allows the Custom Simulator to be extended with custom functionality, specifically build for one plant. For example, one of our modules enables Historian interaction with the simulator, or a connection to an (existing) PA system can be made to allow training from actual PA-systems.
