Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6841) announces that its subsidiary, Yokogawa Engineering Asia, has won a contract to supply an asset management system (AMS) to the PUB, Singapore’s national water agency. The purpose of the AMS is to enhance the reliability and productivity of the PUB’s operations. Yokogawa Engineering Asia will be in charge of supplying, implementing, and maintaining this system.
The PUB oversees the entire water cycle in Singapore, from rainwater collection and the purification and supply of drinking water to the treatment of used water and its reclamation to produce NEWater, Singapore’s own brand of ultra-clean, high-grade reclaimed water. The AMS will help the PUB manage each and every plant and network asset over its entire lifecycle. The AMS will automate processes such as fault reporting, maintenance scheduling, and management reporting. It will support the use of tablets by field teams for easy access to maintenance work processes and the use of radio frequency identification (RFID)* for inventory management. Yokogawa Engineering Asia will be in charge of developing this asset management system and will execute and manage the entire project, which is scheduled for completion by October 2019.
Yokogawa has accumulated a wealth of know-how by working with its customers to develop solutions for their water supply and wastewater treatment facilities, and continues to leverage its measurement, control, and information technologies to develop new systems that help companies run and manage their operations more efficiently. Yokogawa will continue to work with its customers to address whatever issues they face in their businesses and create new value.
