SCADA system for DEWA Water in Dubai/UAE

Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded IDS GmbH with the replacement of their existing SCADA system by the latest version of  HIGH-LEIT.

In the course of this 3-million Euro project, a new, high-performance control centre will be installed and supplemented by an emergency control centre. The former analog communication network will be replaced by new IP-based communication technology.

The main aim of this project is the fast detection of pipeline bursts and leakages which is performed by model-based simulation software.

The pipeline network covers a total length of several thousand kilometers; and since 2003, IDS is supplying the RTUs. More than 500 systems have been installed so far.
