Scottish Water is inviting suppliers to express their interest in tendering for supplying a multi-parameter water quality monitoring system that is well suited to continuous remote monitoring of final effluent waste water. There must be an ability to adapt and customise the system to varying monitoring needs (e.g. removal of parameters that are not required) and treatment works design (e.g. no mains power, turbulent FE discharge). Easy access to secure cloud-based data is required as well as the provision of training as required. The energy used by the system must be from a low carbon source, ideally solar. Maintenance must be minimal, and when required, unchallenging and efficient.
The system will be used to monitor final effluent discharges from waste water treatment plants to allow operators to understand performance and resilience and provide further insight into typical performance trends and unexpected events/pollution incidents.
Estimated contract value £1million - £3million.
