National hail damage repelling system

In 2018, a hail damage repelling system was deployed in Hungary, covering the entire territory of the country. In a 10x10 km grid-network, 986 ground generators were installed out of which 222 pcs are automated, whereas the remaining units are controlled manually.
The operation of the system is based on the forecasts of the Hungarian Meteorological Service (OMSZ). The central software receives three messages per day about the expected hail storms. Three hours before the actual alarm, the software sends a command to the automated units via GPRS connection and to the operators of the manual equipment via an Android mobile application to start-up the units.
Within the framework of this project, we carried out the following tasks:
  • Manufacturing and installation of the automated equipment.
  • Development of a central webSCADA supervision software for the operation and tracking and of the automatic ground generators and for information display.
  • Informing the operators of the manual equipment about the expected events.
  • Alarming the operators of the manual equipment about the necessary interventions.
  • Development of an Android based mobile application for communication with the operators of the manual equipment. 
  • Development of an Android application for sending information about the hailstorm to the dispatch centre.

Budapest Airport

Establishment of a harmonized alarm system at the three stations of the Liszt Ferenc Airport Rescue centre.

The system is responsible for the following tasks:
  • Control and supervision of the gates.
  • Attendance recording.
  • Feedback about the status of the rescue vehicles.
  • Control of the lamp and sliding pole shafts.
  • Supervision of the “starter” operation mode.
  • Alarm displaying.
  • Control of the alarm sound system.
The above-mentioned tasks have to carried out at three different stations under the supervision of one charge hand. In addition to this, the air traffic control team can also send alarm signals in the system in a direct way, based on some predefined protocol rules, using remote access.   
At the given stations and at the remote alarming points, 1-1 PLC is supervising the processes. The communication between the PLCs and the central display take place through a Modbusz TCP/IP protocol.  

Automated alarming process:
  • The gates of the selected garages open automatically and the drivers of the vehicles receive a green sign as soon as the gates reach the appropriate height.
  • The type of alarm and the name of the selected vehicles are written on LED displays that are installed at the different stations and rooms.
  • The automatic system sends through the loudspeakers the instructions that correspond to the protocol of the given alarm.
  • The system secures the doors of the fire pole shafts.
  • The lights are turned on at the station to secure safe movement and traffic.

  • The attendance list of the people that are present within the area of the station is displayed at the dispatcher desk.
  • The immediate environment of the gates can be inspected via CCTV cameras, when giving a closing command from distance.
  • At the different parking stations of the vehicles, an ‘’occupation” sensor is installed that helps to control and to display, whether the vehicle is at the station.
  • The high-capacity fire trucks always have to be kept at steady temperature in order to be able to set them in motion without any problems in case of an alarm. In order to fulfil these requirements, external power supplies are used. The presence of this is continuously controlled by the system.

The Transdanubian Regional Waterwork Plc. (DRV) aimed to reconstruct its process supervisory systems and to develop a unified, integrated and complex process control system that covers the water production, water distribution and wastewater treatment activities in such a way that the particular sub-units are going to be closely integrated to each other.

The realization of the envisaged work doesn’t only consist of connecting the hardware and software systems but it rather foresees the implementation of a comprehensive system that aggregates the software, hardware, data bases and services.
Based on the consultations with the experts of the Transdanubian Regional Waterworks Plc., in order to achieve the modernization goals of the system, the following developments were carried out by us:
  • Establishment of a corporate level water and wastewater dispatch centre. The creation of an integrated system, instead of ‘’island” system.
  • Using the advantages of internet/intranet technologies that can have an effect on the duty system, maintenances and the creation of operation management schemes, since it assures that information is available everywhere at any time. This technology also makes the informatic operation of the system easier, since it allows a simple change of version and client-side installation is not necessary.
  • The establishment of such territorial/regional dispatch centres that can be moved freely within the network of the corporation, as a consequence of which the operational control system can follow the changing organizational structure in a flexible way, it can be modified quickly based on the changing needs.
  • It is necessary to deploy process control systems that are developed in an integrated way, including a uniformed user’s surface, management, functionality and control. In this way a solid system can be developed, in which the employees of the corporation can find their way easily and can access every information that is necessary during their work, shall they stand at whichever level of the organizational hierarchy.
  • Integration to the Technical Information System (TIS) in order to reduce duplicated working activities and errors. As a consequence of this, the huge amount of data that is generated in the process control systems and serves as a basis for the TIS is directly passed over to the latter in a controlled way.

Budapest, South-Pest WWTP - electrical and process control works

The 80.000 m3/day capacity South-Pest WWTP is probably the largest reference of our company in the field of wastewater treatment. The process control system was installed at the end of the 1990s with Siemens S7-300 PLCs and PROFIBUS communication. In the original scheme, three PROFIBUS networks were created (water line, sludge line, Biofor), including 7-18 PLCs per network. All three systems were functioning in an autonomous way and they were characterized at certain segments by distributed intelligence.
In order to realize the efficient energy management of the plant, there was a need for the extensive and integrated control of the whole plant in one system. In the new solution, the Master PLCs of the three autonomous networks were connected to each other via an MPI (Multi-Point Interface) bus system. During the enlargement of the plant, new PLCs were installed that were also connected to the process control system via PROFIBUS Couplers. At this moment the SCADA system is run by our own webSCADA 4.0 version, including server-client connection.
The type of PLCs was also significantly altered, nowadays Schneider, Omron and Siemens S7-300, S7-1200 and S7-1500 series can be also found. During the last upgrading, the 20-years old S7-300 PLCs of the sludge line were replaced by modern S7-1500 versions and the changeover was very smooth. Future development plants will focus on the change of PROFIBUS communication to PROFINET and the replacement of the copper cables of the communication network to optical cables.

MOL Plc. – electrical and process control works of the WWTP at the Duna Refinery Plant in Százhalombatta

It was a true professional challenge to carry out this project, since despite the large volume of work we only had a 3,5 months deadline and it is also important to mention that the WWTP is located in an area, where there is a danger of explosion at the Százhalombatta Duna Refinery. 70% of the project site was in a dangerous area regarding explosions, hence the work had to be carried out with the respect of some special safety prescriptions. The delivered technologies also had to comply with strict standards.  
During the project execution, we used more than 165 km of cables, the communication of the installed process control systems is secured by a broadband optical controlnet network. The control of the plant is provided by 7 PLCs and 7 HMIs.
The main functions of the plant:
  • Sewer Separation
  • Load equalization
  • Oil and grease removal
  • Mechanical and biological treatment
  • Sludge Treatment
  • VOC treatment
  • Garbage Incinerator

Yekaterinburg wastewater treatment plant

Yekaterinburg with a population of 1.3 million inhabitants is the 4th most populous city in the Russian Federation after Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Novosibirsk. It is located on the borderline between Europe and Asia at the feet of the Ural Mountains. The settlement was founded in 1723 and it is one of the stations along the Trans-Siberian Railway. One of the most significant historical events of the city is that after the outbreak of the October Revolution of 1917, Tsar Nicolas II was assassinated here.
The expansion, full-scale modernization and reconstruction of the „Northern” WWTP begun in 2009. Adjusting to the specifications of the technical designs, most of the hardware and software units are Siemens products in the process technology and controls system. The 0.4 kV distribution cabinets were manufactured in Hungary and delivered to the installation site. The central SCADA is WinCC with a Russian language user interface. The PLCs are of S7-300/CPU 315DP type.

Within the framework of the first reconstruction stage, we commissioned the installed PLC cabinets in the new blower engine-room. This equipment is responsible for the supervision and control of the new biological line. Its range of supervision covers 4 pcs of pre-sedimentation basins; 8 pcs of post-sedimentation basins (with chain excavators); raw and excess sludge transfer pumps and the two-line biological treatment tanks (8 pcs of mixers, 8-8 pcs of nitrate and sludge recirculation pumps and related shut-off valves). In addition to this, the dispatch centre with the central computer was also established.
