Modernization at Baixada Santista Business Unit

Sabesp is the fourth largest water and wastewater company in the world, responsible for assisting more than 27 million people in 373 cities in the state of São Paulo, the richest Brazilian state. Baixada Santista Business Unit is responsible for the services at 9 cities in the south coast of the state of São Paulo, assisting 1.8 million residents and up to 4 million people including tourists during summer season.


This business unit is developing a SCADA modernization project using iFIX, ThinManager and RDP protocol in a server-client architecture with 22 water and sewage treatment stations and one operational control center (OCC).


Also, the project aims to replace a legacy portal with Proficy Webspace as the “OCC Portal” software tool and to implement Visual KPIs as a web-based tool for viewing Proficy Historian data in dashboards. The first tests using RDP in the SCADA architecture showed the need to upgrade the bandwidth of the Internet links used on the water and sewage treatment stations, so the system can function satisfactorily.
