Process Verification and Optimisation at Luleburgaz Wastewater Treatment Plant

Model based design verification and optimisation of Lüleburgaz wastewater treatment plant by use of WEST for OPTIMISATION

As one of the beneficiaries of the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) mechanism for European Union (EU) candidates, the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation and the EU IPA department have invested in several environmental-concerns project. The construction of Lüleburgaz wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) is one of such projects. Due to the estimations provided by consultants in the design for the WWTP, a more reliable model based on verified data is required.

With MIKE Powered by DHI WEST for OPTIMISATION software, we were able to provide a dynamic model that was more reliable in simulating the WWTP, based on the design data provided by consultants and real data obtained from Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
