Site Visit Option 1: Centro de Control de Majadahonda 9-11 am
This option will depart at 9 am for a 1 hour tour of the Majadahonda Control Centre and then return to the Madrid Marriott Hotel. This option will suit delegates with afternoon flights on Wednesday 26 April.
Canal de Isabel II Gestión built the new Control Center in 2008 next to the company’s waste water laboratory in the municipality of Majadahonda (Madrid), with a backup control centre located in the company’s headquarters in Madrid, to allow operations to continue in case of an emergency. The Control Centre allows Canal Gestión to take on the daily challenge of supplying water to more than 6 million people in the Community of Madrid through a system that includes 14 reservoirs, 78 groundwater collection points, 13 drinking water treatment plants, a 13,069 km sewerage network, 156 waste water treatment plants and a 421 km reclaimed water network. Operating this complex hydraulic network requires the handling of large amounts of data to be able to manage the system at all times. For this, the company has a set of information systems equipped with the latest generation technology that are integrated into the Control Centre located in Majadahonda.
The Control Centre allows the company to continuously control the status of its facilities, regulate the most important parameters of the water provided, ensure the region’s supply and improve the efficiency of operations, guaranteeing a prompt response to any incident that may arise. Canal Gestión’s control centre has integrated telecontrol and geographic information systems, with the information received managed and analysed via the telecontrol system’s customised SCADA software, which makes it possible to analyse in detail any element of the infrastructure managed by the company.
