Statement of Operating Intents- Water Corporation
A Statement of Operating Intents (SOI) provides the operators and commissioning team with a concise description of the system, the operating constraints, and the allowable normal and contingency modes of the scheme assets. This addresses a gap where the operations manuals produced by the design process typically target the mechanics of the control system and interface screens without explaining the fundamentals (the operating intent).
The document provides an explanation of:
- Operating constraints,
- The overall scheme operating objectives,
- A site-by-site description of the available controls and recommended settings, and
- Allowable operating modes.
WISE has completed Water Corporation SOIs for Burrup Seawater Scheme expansion, Cervantes water scheme, Geraldton water scheme interim strategies (3 stages of scheme upgrades), and Allanooka borefield (Geraldton water source).
