3S Projects

As part of the EU-funded life program, Oasen Drinkwater and 3S Antriebe GmbH are testing a system for automatic leak detection.Therefor, Oasen has divided two DMAs (District Measuring Area) into 6 sub-zones, which can be wirelessly separated from the control center software by 3S Antriebe. On the one hand, this allows the leak to be further limited (step testing: if a zone is separated and then no more water is lost in the DMA, the leak is in the zone). On the other hand, algorithm is used, with the help of which the leakage can be located relatively precisely on the basis of pressure measurements. The algorithm is successively compared and optimized with the information from step testing(Self-learning system).The goal is to measure zero consumption every night in the DMA. If the consumption gives an indication of unwanted water losses, the leakage is located by step testing and algorithm. The next morning, the fitters are sent to the identified location to remedy the leak.

Im Rahmen eines vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung geförderten KMU-Innovativ Verbundvorhabens, haben die Projektpartner RWW, 3S Consult GmbH und 3S Antriebe GmbH Konzepte und technische solutions for intelligent automation of water supply networks. The result are intelligent and resilient supply networks in which important parameters are collected as part of the net monitoring and evaluated by a hydraulic model. The required flexibility is achieved through dynamic pressure zone management using remote-controlled and automated separating valves. erreicht.                                                                                                                                                                                                    Sofern die Daten aus dem Netz ein Eingreifen signalisieren, wird die erforderliche changeover is carried out by pushing a button from the control center. durchgeführt. Durch diese Architektur können z. B. Leckagen automatisiert geortet, Nullverbrauchsmessungen durchgeführt, Stagnationszonen verhindert, Energiekosten eingespart – und gleichzeitig die kritische Versorgungsinfrastruktur geschützt werden.                                                                                                                    Die Projektpartner 3S Consult GmbH und 3S Antriebe GmbH bieten unter dem Namen „3SmartX“ die erforderlichen Ingenieurdienstleistungen und Produkte an, um bestehende Trinkwassernetze zu intelligenten, effizienteren Systemen zu entwickeln (vgl. Flyer „3SmartX“ DEEN).

3S Messen

This year 3S Antriebe GmbH is again at the IFAT in Munich. We cordially invite you to visit us at the exhibition stand from May 04th. - 08th., 2020 We look forward to showing you our new and constantly improved products.

You find us in hall C2 at booth 221


3S Antriebe GmbH from Berlin, Germany, collaborated with its Dutch distribution and service partner Imbema to exhibit at Aquatech 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. “With over 1000+ exhibitors, 25,000+ water experts from 140 countries and 1000+ Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) conference delegates, Aquatech underlines its position as the world’s leading platform for process, drinking and waste water. During 4 days filled with inspiration and innovation, Aquatech Amsterdam provide the perfect platform to network, exchange ideas and do business” (AquaTech 2019).

Imbema is an exclusive distribution partner from 3S Antriebe in the Netherlands. Together they have successfully realized a number of automation projects with multiple local utilities. At Aquatech, 3S Antriebe not only presented some of these projects and the innovative technologies distributed by Imbema, but also included LIFE SmartWater, a project co-fiananced by the European Commission’s Life financial instrument.

Life SmartWater technology is comprised of proprietary technology developed by 3S Antriebe in Germany, specifically combination of sensor management and electric actuators in water supply systems. One of the largest water utilities in the region of Oasen is the pilot partner in the Netherlands. For this pilot project 3S Antriebe implemented 20 3S actuators for buried valves and gained access to real-time analysis of their network operations. Therefore, Oasen have now the opportunity to monitor their network and also actively act on the condition of it.

On May 21 and 22, 2019, 3S Antriebe were presented at the booth of the sales partner R2M. UK is an important market for 3S Antriebe GmbH. Several water supply companies have already operated the 3S AIG. The first pilot projects with the wireless 3S valve actuators will start at the beginning of 2020.
