In August 2017, Zhongshan Public Utilities Water Company selected Siveco’s bluebee® solution to further enhance its Risk Prevention and Field Management processes for five water plants. In December 2017, the mobile production inspection system was put into operation at the Dongfeng Water Plant, thus marking the company’s entry into the new era of “internet + production inspections”.


In a context of continuing expansion in production capacity and increasing risk of environmental pollution incidents in upstream water sources, the traditional inspection management model was unable to meet the company’s requirements for safe, efficient, rapid, and lean management. Based on its actual needs to ensure water quality, the company developed a mobile inspection system based on IoT (Internet of Things) technology to optimize the water plant production inspection business process and management model.



The system uses mobile communication technology as a means to interact in real time with the water plant central control room and the company’s production dispatch center. It automatically generates an inspection plan on a daily basis. Historical data can be accessed at any time during the inspection process. Hidden dangers can be reported on the spot and in real time through mobile phones. The system can track and control the quality of on-site patrols in real time, record the attendance and work status of patrols, perform analysis and statistics over time periods and routes, etc. and ensures seamless connection between inspection personnel and central monitoring teams. Overall the system ensures comprehensive coverage of inspections without blind spots.


The online system greatly improves the scope and efficiency of inspections, while enhancing operational management. In the next step, the water company will rely on this platform to further improve inspections for all subordinate water supply plants, wastewater treatment plants and secondary water pumping stations, covering the entire company’s operations. Zhongshan Water has reached a new level in the Lean Management of its operations.


During the first quarter of 2018, Zhongshan Water deployed bluebee® to the other four water plants. In April, the company signed a new contract with Siveco for secondary water supply inspections.
