Request for Proposals

Professional Engineering Services
for the RDN Water Services SCADA Master Plan

The Regional District of Nanaimo Water Services Department supplies drinking water to nine (9) Water Service Areas (WSA) within the region. Currently there is not a centralized Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) hub where the systems relay information for storage or where Operators can remotely view and control the systems. Instead, each WSA and system component has its own local control system with some limited communication and automation functions.

In addition, communication between the various sites for automation of the systems is predominantly via dial-up analogue modems, which are historically unreliable and some replacement parts for the modems have recently become obsolete.

As such, the purpose of this RFP is to request proposals from qualified engineering firms for the development of a SCADA Master Plan for all RDN WSAs. The proposed hub (historian, back-up drives, etc.) of the SCADA system are proposed to be located at the Nanoose Water Treatment Plant
