Electrical products and solutions specialist ABB India has partnered with Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC), the governing civic authority, to provide its smart, safe and sustainable electrical distribution equipment to enable over 1 million residents in Surat to gain access to safe and reliable water supply.

Surat faces significant water demand from industrial sectors, with clusters of textile units consuming more than 450 million liters per day. Accordingly, the city is addressing the critical issue of optimum water usage across domestic, commercial, and industrial consumption.

A digitally powered system boosted by safe and secure electrical distribution equipment from ABB India enables SMC to sustainably optimize the distribution of a critical natural resource like water across the city.

Besides, a stable power supply also prevents water waste by identifying leaks through effective monitoring, while also supporting the supply of clean and uninterrupted water to one million residents across 38 sq km area.

Commenting on the development, CP Vyas, President – Electrification, ABB India Ltd, said that “we are delighted to be partnering with SMC for this project, contributing towards the local Government’s Smart City vision. ABB is writing the future of smart technology with our state-of-the-art solutions, enabling Surat to achieve a milestone in its journey towards becoming a Smart City.”

The company said that it’s electrification equipment such as air circuit breakers (ACB), moulded case circuit breakers (MCCB), miniature circuit breakers (MCBs), contactors, manual motor starters (MMS), overload relays (OLR), and pilot devices help reduce system downtime by providing steady and reliable power for the water management system to function efficiently.

In order to boost the existing and conventional infrastructure, ABB has also provided the municipal corporation with facilities like a Water Distribution Station, Elevated Storage Reservoir, Rising main line and distribution network line along with a remotely installed SCADA system to provide a comprehensive view of all the data assets.

ABB has partnered with SMC on this project with support from Shrirang Sales Corporation, one of the leading industrial groups in Gujarat. The collaboration of ABB’s global technology solutions coupled with Shrirang Sales Corporation’s local expertise, has played a critical role in making this project a reality.

“We are proud to work with a leading technology and engineering company such as ABB to bring this project to life. Considering our longstanding association with SMC that dates back to 1998, we are looking forward to assisting Surat in the Smart City Mission,” said Bankim Vashi, Managing Partner, Shrirang Sales Corporation.
