SAGE Automation is excited to have been named a preferred Master Alliance Partner in Schneider Electric’s water and waste water sector.
The accreditation makes SAGE Automation one of just two Master Alliance Partners in Australia in the water and waste water market.
Announcement of the accreditation took place at the Schneider Global Systems Integrator Alliance conference in Paris, France. The event brings together more than 600 industrial automation partners from around the world to exchange ideas and share industry best practices.
The Preferred Master Alliance Partner status is awarded for demonstrating technical excellence in the water and waste water (WWW) market, including:
- Successful implementation of Schneider solutions, evidenced through project references validated by clients
- Clear focus of the SAGE business and strategy on the WWW segment
- Successful completion of Schneider Electric’s Water & Waste Water EcoStruxure value proposition training.
SAGE CEO Adrian Fahey was in Paris for the announcement and expressed the importance of the long-running relationship with Schneider Electric.
“Our partnership with Schneider has extended to not only include Master Level status as Systems Integrator but now also includes Preferred Systems Integrator Alliance Partner for Water and Waste Water,” Mr Fahey said.
“This accreditation highlights our maturity and many achievements in the water space, as well as demonstrating the industry-leading knowledge and solutions our team can bring to each project,” he said.
Mr Fahey was also invited to present at the Innovation Days conference, where he spoke of digitalisation in the systems integrator world.

In that time, it has provided control system solutions for many major water utilities around Australia, including a stormwater management and reuse scheme in Murray Bridge that allowed for the harvesting of more than 220 megalitres additional water.
