GIS - ASSET MANAGEMENT
Advanced consultancies and services addressed to building of platform for the structured management of main processes, company’s assets and their maintenance and valorisation.
PROTEO Control Technologies has signed a partnership with ITS Systems GmbH that distributes the Asset Management software Lovion, with about 15.000 licences installed in Europe.The platform Lovion, customised in order to the specific needs of each Utility, surveys the management of company’s assets and core processes, apart from the prioritization and the planning of investments, to ensure a high service level to users and carry out an optimal economic and financial management. The software Lovion is an integration platform in which data coming from GIS, SCADA ERP, DMS, etc… are rearranged in two principal database: data plant DB (it contains networks, plants and meters data) and data process DB. Using this software and their high skilled technicians, PROTEO Control Technologies supplies methodologies and operating techniques addressed to the design, realization, operation and technical/economical management.
The modular structure of the software Lovion allow users to have the sole functional tools they need for their proper plants and for their management needs. The most used modules of Lovion are:
- the network and plant maintenance process,
- the work flow management,
- the management of processes relevant to the meters installation.
Lovion’s got a web version of (tablet, smartphone, etc…) Lovion Web’s aim is to allow the data communication between teams working in the field and teams working in office, in order to optimize the productivity. Lovion manages network construction and operation processes by its tools of: design, economical valorization, construction and amendment. Furthermore it manages the entire company by its tool addressed to prioritize and plan investments, economical/financial investments, long term analysis and simulation of investments to be carried out. So, starting from basic information, Lovion is able to build networks and plants interventions by doing the design and the project of the plants, the planning of activities, the monitoring and removal of faults and malfunctioning and the budgeting of the necessary investments.
SUPERVISION AND CONTROL SYSTEM
Control systems of: industrial plants, multi-Utilities and enviromental systems. Innovative use of informations coming from measured parameters. They are saved in the databases to be transformed in evolutive process knowledge of the monitores system.
Supervision and Control Systems
PROTEO Control Technologies applies technologies and the most known tools to realize supervision and control systems that are highly-innovative. The experience and the competence acquired in the field of the controlled process, allow to design, realize and maintain supervisory and control systems that supply big water systems. The goal of the realized control systems is to give to the technological platform, apart from the correct functioning of the system, real-time data and historical data for the implementation of management strategies of networks and controlled plants, even the alert in case of extraordinary events. The aim of such a technological platform, able to support industrial and environmental monitoring systems, is to transform punctual information, coming from the field, in process-knowledge of the controlled system that has got different performance levels. The objectives of the information platform may be:
- to implement early warning procedures for the bodies that are responsible of the short-term control of the technological-environmental system;
- to contribute to the process knowledge that supports the plan of interventions and the management of territory;
- to give support of a re-engineered control system in order to assist the manager in the continuous improvement process of the level of knowledge and of control of the technological/environmental monitoring system.

SMALL HYDROPOWER PLANTS
In the Utilities management field, network water losses and energetic needs of hydroelectric equipment are considered very important to reach an optimal management in the economical and environmental fields. Actual available technologies allow to actively intervene on such energies recover.
Small hydropower plants
In a water distribution system power costs are about the 30% of the total amount costs. In fact often it happens that wells are to altitude and water needs to be pumped for 200/250 m to join the top of the well and after it flows down to serve the water system that is generally downstream, and having dissipated energy to follow this water flow circuit. Applying a small turbine within the pipe, the water jump can be restored and applied to produce electricity and in the same time can create a loss of hydraulic load, able to eliminate the excess pressure. So you can join two aims: to produce green energy using energy recovery systems and to reduce pressures downstream, since the excess of pressure represents one of the main causes of water losses in fluid networks. Since energy production depends on water demand from downstream, an energy storage system able to store the generated energy and the excess energy is needed, and yields in an energy reserve. By accumulating the energy produced from the wind turbine, to be given to pumping stations, waste water systems, purification systems in the highest cost hours, big savings in terms of energy purchasing costs can be obtained, and meantime it’s possible to minimize the use of not renewable with consequent benefit for the environment. PROTEO Control Technologies, close to the more and more needs of minimization costs and to the environmental issues, in partnership with installation firms, proposes to realize systems composed by turbines and fuel cells and control systems.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The supervision system includes in the Business Layer knowledge models like STRATE.G.O. that are based on artificial intelligence technologies such as fuzzy, neuro-fuzzy and genetic algorithms. Such models are designed to be an early warning system for any anomalies that may occur.
Finally, the Business Layer is part of the responsibility units of the geographical information system (GIS), or the cartographic system for the mapping and management of relative databases.
All services and data processed by the Business Layer systems are fully accessible by Intranet/Internet (XML, ASP) networks.
The platform is compatible with the connection of a large number of varied devices and also allows a mobile operator to interact, through hand-held devices and cellular telephones, with the supervision system through a wide variety of both of I/O devices and connection methods, thus protecting the legacy systems currently in use.
The supervision platform does not substitute but protects investments in innovation, previously purchased legacy systems, re-evaluating them through integration with new technologies. Data processed by the systems are published on the network.
