GECO - Energy Management and Remote Control

The aim of the project is to maximise energy saving in buildings, by controlling energy flows and environmental parameters to allow consumption relating to technological systems to be contained.

GOAL

The aim of the project is to maximise energy saving in buildings, by controlling energy flows and environmental parameters to allow consumption relating to technological systems to be contained. It involves the provision of control and data acquisition systems (meters) in the various complexes and the creation of a web-based platform for the management, collation and processing of data, and to enable the setting of parameters and operating times. The system is able to read data from various proprietary information systems, thus allowing the integrated management of all systems of a building via a single platform.

ACTIVITIES

In 2018 the establishment of the former sugar factory in Cesena was completed. The tender-based project has been improved in the remote plant management part. The system based on the LonWorks platform allows precise control of most of the complex’s technological systems and provides sufficiently extensive coverage to meet the needs of AUTC. Activities relating to the compliance upgrading of electrical substations are ongoing, including the implementation of a remote control system that detects power and consumption in real time.
