OPTIMIZE OPERATIONS TO PREVENT PEAK ENERGY CONSUMPTION.
Optimizing the treatment plant to give operations the ability to leverage data to improve processes and reduce energy is now more important than ever. Xylem's innovative BLU-X Treatment Plant Optimization system helps utilities improve treatment plant efficiencies to save energy, minimize chemical inputs, and deliver better water and results at optimized cost and effort.
REAL-TIME DECISION SUPPORT.
Integrates directly with your existing SCADA system and creates a real-time digital twin to simulate and optimize complex biological and chemical processes.
LOWER COST WITHOUT NEW INFRASTRUCTURE.
By utilizing existing infrastructure, utilities are able to optimize operations, reduce energy use and operating costs.
A GLASS BOX, NOT A BLACK BOX.
Digital solutions often operate as “black boxes”, offering little transparency into their processes. Xylem gives utilities direct insight into the functionality of its data collection and integration process.
JOIN THE 70+ CLIENTS ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO ARE REALIZING 3X TO 10X MORE ROI.
With BLU-X, utility leaders like you are driving significant savings while reducing energy and chemical consumption.
HARNESS THE POWER OF DECISION INTELLIGENCE
As just one of the digital solutions in Xylem’s new platform of disruptive technologies, BLU-X Treatment Plant Optimization allows utilities to improve treatment plant operations while continuing to ensure regulatory compliance and realize savings.
XYLEM’S BLU-X TREATMENT PLANT OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM WILL:
- Ensure compliance with legal threshold values
- Reduce chemical consumption
- Optimize aeration energy consumption rates
- Increase security from an automatically controlled system
- Help recognize problems in the plant faster
- Enable faster response times to equipment failures
- Lead to a better understanding of complex plant processes
- Increase transparency on how performance metrics are achieved
- Lower concentrations of pollutants in effluent
SENSE, PREDICT, AND ACT IN REAL-TIME.
BLU-X Treatment Plant Optimization utilizes a Sense-Predict-Act methodology (similar to our BLU-X Wastewater Network Optimization system), merging real-time data and plant models, augmented with artificial intelligence, to create a real-time decision support system that helps optimize complex sewage treatment systems. And when combined with the operational expertise of plant operators, utilities can optimize energy usage, chemical consumption, and ensure regulatory compliance at less cost.
BLU-X also integrates historical and real-time data like SCADA, LIMS, and weather into a single system that powers the treatment plant and provides a continuous view of all operations. This data is then used to create a digital twin of the plant that accurately forecasts operating conditions and recommends optimal treatment for current wastewater flow and composition. These powerful tools, combined with automation, give operators the single source of truth needed to make real-time decisions and optimize the treatment process.
DISCOVER HOW 3+3 COULD EQUAL MILLIONS.
In three simple steps and three short months, you can be on a path to take better control of your treatment plant operations and reducing energy and chemical consumption significantly. Getting started with a discovery pilot is easy:
First, we conduct an initial discovery session to identify your critical system pain point and determine the metrics we’ll use to track our benefits to your plant.
Next, we’ll use your existing data and analyze the performance of your system to identify opportunities to operate your treatment plant more efficiently and address your pain point at a lower cost.
Finally, we collaborate with you in a workshop where we provide a data-driven presentation and discuss our analysis. The outcome is a high level, prioritized set of recommendations and practical next steps to optimize your system’s operational and efficiency outcomes.
