Rockwell Automation will host a Water Industry Forum on 5 May to discuss significant issues affecting the South Australian water industry.
The Forum will be held in the lead-up to the OzWater’11 conference to be held in Adelaide in early May.
Rockwell’s complimentary, half-day event will reportedly give guests the opportunity to discuss, share ideas and hear from a range of speakers, on best practices and innovations for automation, information, power and safety solutions for the water industry.
Rockwell is said to be a key contributor to sustainable water management, which is a high priority to South Australia as the driest State.
“Rockwell has had a long association with the water industry in South Australia and by hosting the Water Industry Forum we hope to raise awareness of the current challenges and solutions in technology,” said Greg Schultz, State Sales Manager, SA/NT, Rockwell Automation.
“Automation is advancing at such a rapid rate; it is important to keep in touch with the latest trends and products. The Forum will offer interested parties an opportunity to network and exchange viewpoints.”
The Forum will cover process control and reverse osmosis, condition monitoring, network security and minimising the effects of harmonics in variable speed drives – all of which Rockwell says are fundamental to maintaining a robust and sustainable water management system in a region that relies heavily on limited water resources.
The Water Industry Forum will be held at the Hilton Adelaide from 12.30pm on Thursday 5 May. Rockwell Automation will be exhibiting at the OzWater’11 Conference, Adelaide Convention Centre from the 9th – 11th May.
