ORANI, Bataan – The Orani Water District (OWD) is set to install Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) expected to be operational March next year.
“The bidding process for the installation of our SCADA is on-going”, said OWD General Manager Benni Andres.
“By March 2018, we expect the SCADA to be turned over to us fully operational”, he said,
SCADA is a computer system for gathering and analysing real time data.
“Even here in my office with the installed SCADA, I could monitor our operation like for instance the level of our water supply in particular areas”, Andres said.
SCADA is one of the 5 components upgrade of the water district’s facilities to better service members funded from a loan at KFW Bank in Germany though the Local Water Utilities Administration.
