The portfolio of mechanical and plant engineering in water management ranges from pumps, pumping systems and drive technology to mechanical and electrical equipment as well as measurement and control technology.
Mechanical and electrical systems play an important role in public drinking water supply and industrial production processes. They are essential components of water supply and treatment plants and usually are durable assets with a high share of operating costs.
In addition, new challenges that the society is facing—such as climate change, demographic change or man-made environmental pollution (trace substances, drug residue, microplastics, etc.)—have a major impact on water management. Solutions to new requirements have a great influence on innovations in machine and plant engineering.
All aspects of machine and plant technology are developing constantly and rapidly: energy efficiency, quality requirements, operational safety, performance. An essential driver for the great dynamism of this progress is the rapid advancement in digitization and its effects on the measurement and control technology of machines and plants in water management.
