Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) provides water, wastewater, gas, and electric services to customers in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. CSU was experiencing failures with a distributed control system and needed a new solution that would provide enhanced reliability, efficiency and sustainability. Unexpected plant outages were becoming a costly problem. The CSU water department had already migrated its legacy DCS system to a Rockwell Automation control system, so the utility decided to standardize all plant operations on Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture because they needed a single vendor capable of providing integrated hardware, software, and networking.

The new solution allowed CSU to remotely operate multiple gas, hydroelectric and power plants from a single central location. Operators can now perform maintenance and troubleshooting tasks at a plant onsite or online from a central facility to better meet customer demands, save time and reduce labor costs.
