Vedanta Aluminium uses IoT for water conservation at Jharsuguda plants

The technology has started delivering reduced water consumption, improved water quality, reduced scaling and corrosion, and improved other operational parameters that have led to overall improvement in station heat rate, a measure of power plant efficiency.

  • The IoT technology deployed studies real-time operational data and recommends optimum water quality parameters that ultimately lead to water conservation through increase of cycle of concentration

New Delhi: Vedanta Aluminium has deployed Internet of Things (IoT) based technology for cooling water analysis and overall reduction in water consumption at its power plants in Jharsuguda.

New Delhi: Vedanta Aluminium has deployed Internet of Things (IoT) based technology for cooling water analysis and overall reduction in water consumption at its power plants in Jharsuguda.
