The efficiency of nature
It is this natural, efficient working method that seems to underpin the operational philosophy at Dunea: robust, smart, efficient and reliable. One of the electrical engineers at Dunea, Cees van de Noort, forms part of a dedicated process automation team responsible for the constant supply of fresh drinking water to over 1.3 million people throughout
The Hague city and surrounds. Electrical engineering has been a central focus of Cees’ professional life since graduating from high school in Leiden – and he has since built up decades of hands-on experience gained working in various facilities from water plants in Sumatra to petrochemical plants in Europe – all the while installing hardware and electrical systems to enhance profitability and reliability. This has led to his specialisation, and passion, for PROFIBUS systems – a particular technology utilised by Dunea Duin & Water to enhance their operational efficiency.

The benefits of certification
“Our last upgrade was the installation in the decalcification process. Here we have 8 masters in combination with four controllers, and here we’ve opted to use PROFIBUS for as many components as possible. By specifying high standards at the specification stage we’re now seeing very few issues in the PROFIBUS installed environment.”
“PROFIBUS supports better diagnostics, which means commissioning can happen a lot quicker. It just gives us better quality data that is timelier and essential for operations and management. what makes PROFIBUS so attractive is its ability to drive down our overheads and improve operational efficiency throughout the lifetime of the facility – this includes the whole lifecycle from design, ongoing maintenance and revamps as well.”
