SCADA

SCADA system engineering & programming has many water-based applications

Many of our SCADA projects have been around remotely monitoring town/city water supply and use, as well as gathering essential data for drainage and sewerage systems.

SCADA – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition – is a kind of industrial control system with a range of large scale applications. SCADA systems can incorporate multiple sites and large distances. SCADA control, network and communication systems are a specialty focus for Opus’ Canada operations. We have significant experience in this area and our SCADA-related expertise is valued by our clients along with our water and wastewater systems and skills.
