Smart apps for greater efficiency and security of supplyThe applications and digital services from the Siemens Industry Suite for water industry provide higher transparency and therefore help identify optimization and savings potential for stronger security of supply. With the Siemens Water (SIWA) applications specifically developed for the water and waste water industry operators can optimize energy efficiency, avoid water loss, reduce contamination of water bodies and take predictive maintenance measures.
SIWA Pump Guardian
SIWA Pump Guardian is an loT solution that automatically prevents blockages in sewage pumps and provides complete transparency over pump’s and pumping station’s performance and analytics.
SIWA Sewer is a powerful and innovative sewer network management application, that calculates the need for control interventions in drainage systems using optimization algorithms. In this way SIWA Sewer ensures effective utilization of existing buffers in the sewer network under consideration of rainfall events, thereby avoids and reduces spill overs of untreated water.
SIWA Leak for Water transmission lines
Providing transparency, SIWA Leak generates real-time information on water transportation pipelines for fully automatic detection, localization and alarming of larger or creeping leaks.
SIWA Burst uses intelligent algorithms over an intuitive interface to analyze in real time high frequency recorded pressure fluctuations in pipelines and to locate the source of pipe damage with an accuracy of 20 to 50 meters.
SIWA Optim is a solution for a cost optimized control of pumping schedules for an entire network, providing flexible operation management and cost-effective water supply under consideration of volatile electricity tariffs and water sources.
SIWA LeakPlus for water distribution networks
SIWA LeakPlus is a cloud based application to detect leaks in meshed drinking water networks. lt combines Real-time Monitoring of sensors, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Hydraulic Simulations into an innovative solution thus making it possible to detect and locate leaks at an early stage.
SIWA Blockage Predictor
SIWA Blockage Predictor is an AI based solution that evaluates combined sewer overflow's adaptive performance in real time, considering rainfall patterns and deviations and uses fuzzy logic to warn operator before sewers will be blocked partially or completely.

Reducing pollution incidents from wastewater networks
SIWA Blockage Predictor, a Siemens MindSphere solution, evaluates combined sewer overflow (CSO) behaviour in real time, providing a better understanding of the system’s performance of any issues.
This solution helps to identify if a sewer is blocked, or is not operating correctly, or if a CSO or manhole is soon to have operational issues. The analytics are embedded within a web application, enabling remote access on mobile devices or PCs and notifying users in advance of any issues.
Putting an end to clogged wastewater pumps
SIWA Pump Guardian is a secure IoT solution that prevents blockages and makes the performance of pumps and pumping stations completely transparent. Designed for small wastewater pumping stations it is a cost-efficient and tailored solution for giving visibility in to performance and risk in the network.
Leak detection in water transport pipelines
SIWA Leak is a system for detecting larger and creeping leaks in water transport pipelines. As a supplement to existing control and automation systems, SIWA Leak continuously provides operating personnel with information on the status of the water transport pipeline, which – in the event of a leak – gives them a precise decision-making starting point for taking the correct countermeasures.
Leak detection in water distribution networks
SIWA LeakPlus – powered by BuntPlanet*– is an innovative solution for leak detection in water distribution networks. With the support of cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and hydraulic simulations, leaks can be detected easily and fully automatically and remedied at an early stage.

Cost-optimized pump operation in water supply systems
Centralized sewer network control system to prevent flooding as a contribution to sustainable water protection
SIWA Sewer is a powerful and innovative sewer network control application that calculates the need for control interventions in drainage systems using optimization algorithms. In this way SIWA Sewer ensures optimum utilization of the sewer network, thereby preventing waste water from being discharged into natural waters.
SIWA Sewer optimizes water treatment performance by stabilizing the inflow to the treatment plant so that the operator can run the facility more efficiently.
Standardization for an efficient digital workflowA modular system comprised of specifically selected components and extensive sample solutions for typical plants and processes is paving the way for greater efficiency, productivity, and availability as well as reliable operation – and guarantees a solid foundation for consistent, end-to-end digitalization.
Expert support from planning to engineering and operation.
The Water Portal provides an extensive and freely available collection of sample solutions and configurations, engineering standards, and tools for automation, process instrumentation, drive technology, and the electrotechnical equipment in water and waste water plants. Instructions for industrial security and communication are also available.
Proven expert tools for specialists
Expert support for engineering companies, system integrators, and plant construction companies for designing, configuring, and engineering water and waste water plants and systems, pump stations, and desalination plants. These future-proof sample solutions enable end customers to minimize their costs and risks throughout the lifecycle of their plant.
Standardized templates for engineering and operation of process control systems
Standardized engineering of the control system application pays off. It reduces costs and risks during planning, project engineering, commissioning, ongoing maintenance, and servicing and even for future modernizations of the plant. Smooth running and ergonomic operation and diagnostics are ensured for utility companies.
Integrated engineering and integrated operation
The Water Templates – available free of charge – are custom-made templates for system integrators, plant construction companies, and operators. They contain functions for open- and closed-loop control and ergonomic operation and diagnostics – including for distributed control rooms and external stations. Use of hardware components for automation systems, drive technology, and industrial communication, which includes telecontrol technology, is all fully prepared.
The Water Templates are optimally embedded in the integrated engineering and also encompass simulation, testing, and commissioning. Using the Water Templates also ensures a standardized database for end-to-end digitalization.
Standardized Library for Basis Processes (LBP) for the use in automation and process monitoring systems
Standardization reduces configuration costs and increases operational reliability in the water industry. Plant manufacturers and system integrators are increasingly challenged in areas of the water industry to create more and more powerful SCADA and/or automation solutions for achieving operational efficiency at ever lower costs.
Integrated engineering and integrated operation
The Library of Basic Processes (LBP) is an open, tested as well as design-oriented block library for the SIMATIC TIA Portal and SIMATIC WinCC. With this library, you can solve a wide variety of automation tasks in the water industry very efficiently and significantly reduce the engineering workload and thus the configuration costs as well as the project duration.
The library for these different product variants is available for download free of charge at Siemens Online Support.
