ACCIONA Agua, through its Automation and Control Department, has closed two important strategic agreements with Schneider Electric and Siemens, which will strengthen the company’s position as a certified integrator of industrial automation systems and an expert in water cycle processes.
Under these agreements, ACCIONA Agua is certified as an “Alliance Integrator Partner” for Schneider Electric and an “OEM Process Integrator” for Siemens, which will complement and add value to the services of these two leading companies in designing and manufacturing automation and industrial control solutions.
These certifications mean that ACCIONA Agua is now part of the group of qualified partners committed to Schneider Electric’s and Siemens’ most advanced engineering tools and technologies. The certification programs accredit ACCIONA Agua’s qualifications and ability to integrate these systems and technologies.
These alliances will enable comprehensive automation systems and solutions to be implemented and put into operation, providing specialist knowledge about process programming techniques and, in particular, about processes related to the integral water cycle in which ACCIONA Agua is an expert.
The experience gained from numerous projects carried out in recent years, combined with the completed skills training and evaluation process, have enabled ACCIONA Agua to become a leader in the field of industrial process automation thanks to these agreements, contributing complementary experience and knowledge in the water sector.
The company is strengthening its commitment to technological development, focused on value generation and the search for efficient and competitive solutions based on innovation in the complete water cycle, from the design of plants and projects through to their long-term operation across every discipline – production, control, reporting, processes and safety.
ACCIONA Agua’s Automation and Control Department specialises in diverse areas (telecommunications, IT, industrial and automation) and focuses on programming plant control systems, remote controls and software for industrial applications.
“These agreements represent yet another step in ACCIONA Agua’s strategy to become an advanced technology partner and to continue developing innovative projects in the sector, positioning the ACCIONA Agua brand at the highest and most competitive technological level”, said Alejandro Beivide, Automation & Control Manager at ACCIONA Agua.
“Emblematic projects such as the Adelaide desalination plant or more recently the Atotonilco water treatment plant, both of which were carried out in collaboration with Schneider Electric, have made ACCIONA Agua a clear leader not only in Spain but internationally”, explained Agustín Fragoso, System Integrator Channel Manager at Schneider Electric. “At a time of major technological advances, agreements such as the one we have signed today allow us to offer the most advanced and competitive technologies and systems in the market for better management, control and operational efficiency”, he added.
For his part, Javier Pizarro from Siemens said: “The current automation systems, which lie at the heart of water process systems, are increasingly important and provide added value, enabling our companies to differentiate themselves from their competitors. As a leading firm in the technology and supply of automation systems, Siemens can offer our Process OEM, ACCIONA Agua, everything it needs to increase the performance of its plants, improve the quality of its projects, increase efficiency and productivity, reduce commissioning times, carry out sustainable projects and ensure compliance with standards and regulations around the world”.
