Real-time water level monitoring of the tanks was made possible by installation of the EWS Solar Mount & connected EWS Vented Level Sensor. This device is a purpose built and fully self-contained unit which can be easily installed atop any critical infrastructure.
The Solar Mount was setup to record the tanks water level every 15min and transmit collected data every 12hours via Iridium certified satellite telemetry contained within the unit. All data is then displayed for the customer on the easy-to-use, secure Orion iO dashboard.
Through the Orion iO dashboard alarm levels for “low water level” were then setup to both indicate critical water leakage at the tanks and initiate refill of the Water Tank itself. Alarms and notifications are all fully customisable to the clients specific requirements.
The Sydney Gateway starts at the St Peters Interchange, the junction of the M8 Motorway and M4–M5 Link, all of which are being built as part of WestConnex.
This large tunnelling project is located near the Blue Mountains Region of NSW. When completed, the $2.5Billion project will be Australia’s longest road tunnel at 11kms long and will form the main road corridor between Central Western NSW and the Sydney Region.
