Sensfix collaborated with a client from the Ferrovial Group, specializing in wastewater treatment plants, to implement their Sens-Facility suite. This solution incorporated AI, sensors, and OCR technology to automate various procedures at an industrial wastewater treatment plant. By strategically placing sensors, a monitoring system was created to detect anomalies and monitor critical assets. OCR technology facilitated offline data acquisition and digitization of images and paper-based forms. The platform also provided real-time monitoring and data analysis for process optimization and continuous improvements.

The Challenge

The client is a part of the Ferrovial Group and operates in the field of engineering, construction, and operations and maintenance (O&M) of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). The client site in question is an industrial wastewater treatment plant, where skilled workers are responsible for managing its operations. The plant operates 24/7, with at least one person always present. The current processing for operations and maintenance were inefficient and were delayed, risking damage to critical infrastructure. Several O&M procedures required automation, including lab data recording, motor health monitoring, chemical level recording, and the digitization of paper forms. To find a cost-effective and advanced solution, the client was interested in partnering with an advanced technology solution provider to implement their technology in this particular treatment plant.

The Solution

Sensfix collaborated with the client to implement the Sens-Facility suite. This comprehensive service management platform incorporated AI, sensor technologies, and OCR technology to address the client’s requirements. The implementation began with strategically placing a diverse range of sensors throughout the client’s facilities. By combining these sensors, a robust monitoring system was established, capable of detecting anomalies and providing valuable insights into the performance and health of critical assets.

To enhance the data acquisition process, OCR technology was employed on a portable device capable of working in offline mode. This enabled the extraction of vital information from various documents, ensuring rapid and precise digitization of images and paper forms. In addition, the solution included automated retrieval of parameters from different displays.

Sensfix engineered a scalable platform which not only enabled real-time data monitoring but also served as a centralized repository for historical data analysis. Leveraging this comprehensive data analysis capability, the client could identify patterns, optimize processes, and drive continuous improvements in their wastewater treatment plant operations.
