OneStone Finalists in two AWA categories in 2021

As a leading water systems consultancy, we assist our clients in planning, designing, operating, and testing efficient water systems.

By using a holistic approach, we can positively impact our clients, communities, and the environment through the development of innovative and sustainable water solutions.

We are proud to announce that we are finalists for the Australian Water Associations Research and Development Excellence Award as well as the Infrastructure Project Innovation Award (Metro) in Western Australia for 2021.

The first award recognises projects which have challenged current practice and address the need for a sustainable future. The second, recognises significant and innovative infrastructure projects within the water industry that drive prosperity and sustainability.

Finalist – Research and Development Excellence Award

In collaboration with Augment Technologies, our FluidSpace™ simulation system lets controllers run a digital ‘twin’ of a water distribution system, providing accurate feedback to enable thorough testing of pump control logic programmed on physical PLCs for every scenario.

FluidSpace™ is the latest advance on control system modelling, providing proof-of-concept for control systems of the future, optimising the operation of existing water infrastructure, and de-risking upgrade and expansion projects to make water supply more stable, reliable, and secure.

Finalist – Infrastructure Project Innovation Award (Metro) in Western Australia

The Water Corporations Tamworth Hill Pump Station needed a control system upgrade to reliably operate at maximum capacity, allowing increased water production from southern water sources. In collaboration with Guidera O’Connor (GO) and SPIN Group, a ‘Plug-and-Play’ upgrade was achieved using the FluidSpace™ simulation system together with SPIN’s SIMIT (Siemens) virtual control system simulation to develop and test the control logic prior to installation.

This project demonstrates the benefits of using a responsive ‘digital water’ twin in control system design and testing as well as provides proof-of-concept for derisking the development of more highly automated control systems in the future.
