We often take for granted the complexity of the systems that handle wastewater treatment. Clean water is one of our most important resources and the operations centers that monitor this process help ensure not only sanitation but the return of clean water back into our environment.
Operators in wastewater treatment plant control rooms need to be empowered to make the right decisions at the right time. Being empowered to make the best use of the data in front of them makes all the difference in operating safely and efficiently.
In an operational command center, the flow of information is constant. Operators need to quickly diagnose and react to issues.
At any given time a wastewater treatment plant will need to monitor several things at once, from water levels and flow between basins to energy consumption and pump activity. In 2020, we’re discovering yet another important thing wastewater treatment plants can monitor: early signs of COVID-19 outbreaks. According to an article in The New York Times, a recent study found that changes in virus levels in wastewater preceded changes in positive test results by four to 10 days. Control rooms monitoring this information at wastewater treatment plants can help give public health officials important warnings about potential upticks in infections, maybe even before test results.
One thing is clear: the control room of a wastewater treatment plant is a highly specialized environment. Choosing the right mission critical integrator can make all the difference in optimizing functionality.
Constant Technologies integrates utilities control rooms
At Constant, we have decades of experience in the design and implementation of highly functional control rooms. From operator consoles to video walls, we offer comprehensive turnkey solutions to optimize your monitoring environment.
As an integrator, we offer highly customizable solutions for display wall systems. Our processing, routing and control systems allow your control room applications to be seamlessly displayed over a large area with no loss of image quality. A highly functional, reliable display wall centrally located in the control room allows operators to monitor data in real-time for rapid analysis and response.
In addition, Constant offers a full line of console desks and technology furniture. Operators in treatment plants often have lengthy shifts, so we design and manufacture furniture options that focus on ergonomics and operator comfort. Our sit/stand consoles allow operators more freedom of movement which can increase productivity. In addition, we offer control room conference and collaboration furniture, credenzas and pod workstations for all areas of your control room area. We also take current precautions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic into consideration when planning out a space, creating partitions between operator consoles and offering “de-densified” console layouts.
The installation process for your operations center is also vital. That’s why we use a highly trained and experienced in-house installation team to bring your project to life. From the complex cabling in AV racks to furniture assembly and equipment management, our install team knows every aspect of mission critical installation.
Constant’s expertise and guidance for your operations center doesn’t just end there, however. We also provide service and support. In fact, we’re so dedicated to keeping our clients happy and operating at optimal levels that we created a Support Operations Center within our global headquarters to more effectively monitor service requests.
