Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System, August 25, 2005
Completed initial end-to-end testing of trial system. This included Control Microsystems ScadaPack Modbus RTU communicating via an Airlink Raven CDMA cell modem over Verizon's cell infrastructure and the Internet to a host running Software Toolbox's TOPS Modbus OPC Power Server, Indusoft's Web Studio HMI, and a networked Microsoft SQL server.
While there is still no word on release of the Phase II contract's notice to proceed, the good news is that the city of Baton Rouge appears to have worked out details of a contract extension with the overall engineering consultant, which should be completed soon. We are working now to set a date to meet with them and the city's maintenance management to develop an agreement about this extension. Getting this issue resolved will definitely help pick up the pace of the project.
