Vital infrastructure is close to our heart.

We create systems that help infrastructure owners to secure and optimize operations. Such as access to safe water, a modern railway and a sustainable energy supply.

We are organized as two separate companies:

  • Cactus Utilities AB: water, energy and process.
  • Cactus Rail AB: railway (traffic management systems). Please visit

Our clients have something else in common: business activities that favour a long-term sustainable society. The cactus was our inspiration when we named our company. It lives and thrives in environments that are harsh and demanding – just like our systems.

The art of running projects.

Our project management ability has become something of an institution. It encompasses everything from punctual implementation of the highest quality, to keeping to agreed budgets. We are certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001.

Thinking beyond.

As a company, we have been working on the Swedish automation market for longer than many others. Work with us and you will therefore be working with some of Sweden’s most highly experienced project managers, process engineers, system developers and automation engineers.

We delivered our first system back in 1974. You can rely on us, we know your business.
Thinking beyond.

VIVAB has signed an agreement with Cactus Utilities as a provider of a new, unified SCADA system.

VIVAB (Water and Environment in the West AB) was founded in 2009 and is jointly owned by the municipalities of Varberg and Falkenberg.

VIVAB’s largest water and wastewater plants are the sewage works Getteröverket in Varberg and Smedjeholmen in Falkenberg, and the water works Kvarnagården in Varberg and Kärreberg in Falkenberg. VIAB has a total of about 275 plants.

VIVAB’s objective of obtaining a new SCADA system is to implement a uniform SCADA system in all VIVAB operations within four years. Today, VIVAB is supporting and developing four different SCADA systems, where the VIVAB staff must have knowledge of several different systems. This makes the operation and management ineffective.

A new member to the Cactus Eye family

Nordvästra Skånes Vatten och Avlopp (NSVA) is a water services company in the south of Sweden. NSVA have now made their decision: Cactus Eye is the future. With four existing Uni-View systems in place this will be the largest Cactus Eye upgrade to this date. The project is set to initiate in april 2014 and is scheduled for commissioning in Q1 2015. “We are very happy that NSVA made this decision. It confirms that Cactus Eye is the top system for Water and Waste Water management. The ability to merge operational data with laboratory data, energy data and maintenance data enables the entire organization to work under the same conditions with the same system – says Dennis Jursic Wanninger”.
