Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System-November 2, 2005
November 2, 2005
The prime consultant is routing a final draft of the Phase I RTU and HMI request for proposal document to city purchasing for approval. They are also working on terms of a change order to cover post-bid cost increases incurred by the Phase II installing contractor. These increases occurred due to the delay of issuance of a notice to proceed, now extending beyond a year from the initial bid date.
A number of SCADA server configuration tasks were completed. These included review and purge of unused RTU database tags and software licensing setup. Routers and a VPN were setup to simulate the IP connection between the remote data center collocated SCADA servers and our office, which is required for remote maintenance of the system.
The existing RTU manufacturer will complete the Modbus firmware revisions this week, allowing us to begin final RTU communication checkout for existing RTUs to the SCADA system next week.
