ASCÓ CITY COUNCIL
Type: HVAC, Energy Consumption
The town of Asco is located next to the Ebro River in the province of Tarragona, Catalunya, and is one of the municipalities of Spain that hosts within its boundaries a nuclear power plant.
Ascó City Council wants to monitor and control all 16 municipal facilities it manages, as a way to improve energy efficiency.
The project first phase objective is to monitor the energy consumption of the city hall building and to automate and control HVAC equipment distributed across various floors on the building.
The first step was to install energy measurement equipment, manufactured by CARLO GAVAZZI, enabling the communication with actuators and temperature sensors that were installed on each floor/zone switchboards. With this setup, a bidirectional communication was established with the Smart Data System platform and then monitoring and automated tasks were scheduled.
The Smart Data System owned SentiloProxy, was installed on the communication module to enable the system to send collected data to the platform and receive commands in return.
