Veolia designed Hubgrade with security at its core and is committed to protecting the integrity of physical devices, networks, software and data from attack, damage and unauthorized access.

Cybersecurity is a critical component that is fully integrated at every level, from data acquisition and transfer to data aggregation, analysis and reporting.
Hubgrade in China
As laid out in the Cybersecurity Law of the People’s Republic of China and other relevant laws and regulations, national cyberspace sovereignty, protection of critical information infrastructure and protection of individual privacy are key priorities in the country. To provide the best experience for our customers in China and to comply with China’s legal and regulatory requirements, Veolia Water Technologies has partnered with local Chinese experts (Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd. and Ningxia Western Cloud Data Technology Co., Ltd. via AWS China) to establish a local platform for Hubgrade in the country.
Hubgrade is therefore fully operational in China and deployed in accordance with national cyberspace sovereignty, offering peace of mind for users while they benefit from high levels of performance and international expertise.
The gateway to Hubgrade in China is a private and secure, customizable and mobile-friendly user interface. The customer web portal is designed to maximize transparency and control while increasing the operational efficiency of water treatment systems. It seamlessly consolidates water and wastewater treatment equipment performance data and service interactions into a robust dashboard that can be accessed from any location, anytime, from any device in China.
The Hubgrade Performance module is an online digital twin of the wastewater treatment and sewer network which provides prediction in real-time, leveraging a suite of powerful algorithms, intelligent software and holistic solutions offering real-time optimization. This state-of-the-art cloud computing platform is now available in China.
Finally, Veolia Water Technologies’ local team in China can provide feedback in a timely manner thanks to real-time access to plant data. They are able to assist with preventative measures, leading to a reduction in operating costs, and reactive measures such as troubleshooting and process support. By using the data and analytics along with technology that enables its experts to see what the operator is seeing without going on site, problems can be addressed right away while risks associated with events such as safety, plant shutdowns or compliance failures are greatly reduced.
Hubgrade brings Veolia’s experts closer to plant operators and their operational needs.
