A modern automation concept for Wahlen's water supply

Endress+Hauser (Switzerland) AG installs a control system including measurement technology.

In 2010, Endress+Hauser (Switzerland) AG was commissioned to install a new distributed control system including measurement technology.
Two stages of expansion ensued in 2013 – these encompassed a membrane filter system and the extension of the controller.
