AUMA supports Qatar water supply system upgrade

Posted: Wednesday 19th February 2014

AUMA has supplied 105 electrical actuators for the water supply system of Doha, the capital city of Qatar, as part of a major Ashghal Public Works Authority upgrade programme. The modular actuation technology provided by AUMA has been used to replace all existing manual valves with remotely operated electrical valves managed via a SCADA control system.

A comprehensive survey of all locations, spread across the whole city, was conducted by AUMA to identify valve sizes and evaluate actuator requirements. After proving it could meet the challenges of the highly complex retrofit remit, AUMA supplied its latest generation actuators fitted with integrated AM controls. These fully comply with the requirements of the SCADA control system.

In addition, AUMA revisited all sites to design actuator adaptors, which have been locally fabricated to meet the precise needs of each installation. Key strengths of AUMA were its willingness and capability to work in close collaboration with Hyder Consulting from the early front end engineering and design (FEED) stage.

Local support was also significant in gaining the contract, with AUMA Middle East responsible for the supply of locally sourced valve adaptors and full supervision of installation and commissioning activities.
