Tour of Orrville Power and Water Plants


Presentation Summary:
A tour will be conducted through the City of Orrville’s power generation/distribution, water and waste treatment utilities. The City of Orrville over the past 6 years has undertaken a massive upgrade to the instrumentation, controls, operator interface and city-wide data collection systems. This involved selecting a state-of-the-art distributed control system platform, migrating the existing control schemes, and creating a city-wide data historian. This involved the creation of a citywide network using an Ethernet communication backbone and wireless technology to integrate remote sites into the overall utility infrastructure.

SPEAKERS: The Manager of each Utility will describe their processes and discuss the benefits of an integrated control system and what challenges they face in today’s world, from security, to smart grid, to environmental impacts.
