Major AUMA order for Arab Emirates

AUMA actuators with integral controls combine with the company’s bevel gearboxes to automate double-stem penstocks at Al Wathba

An initiative by the Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company (ADSSC) to improve its sewerage infrastructure has resulted in an order for 300 modular AUMA electric actuators.

A programme to construct a series of Wastewater Treatment Plants is being undertaken by the ADSSC, a regulatory organisation for wastewater collection for the Abu Dhabi and Al Ain regions in the UAE. AUMA’s actuators are being supplied for valve automation at new WwTWs at Al Wathba and Al Saad.

Commenting on the strength of AUMA’s track record supplying the ADSSC, local AUMA representative Naveen Shetty said: “The selection of AUMA actuators was based on the ADSSC’s positive experience of our technology: we have an established track record supplying Abu Dhabi WEA, the former owner of ADSSC, and continued to supply the sewerage services company when it re-established in 2009 as an independent operation.”

“ADSSC reports that the reliability of AUMA devices, and support provided, are key reasons for the continued selection of our products.”

300 SA type actuators, with integral AC actuator controls, have been installed for operation via fieldbus and conventional parallel signal transmission.
