Salonit Anhovo is the biggest cement production factory in Slovenia. In order to comply with European energy regulation and meet the energy consumption reduction target, Salonit Anhovo decided to carry out an energy management project. The project required a custom-made solution to optimize energy-intensive production processes.
KEY CONSUMPTION DATA:
Usage over 90 GWh of electrical energy annually, more than 8 GWh of gas, and over 400,000 m3 technological water. The cost of the consumed energy in the company amounts to more than 6,000,000 EUR/year.
Focus on the energy-saving instead of the cabling.
Wireless technology was chosen over wired technology to simplify the roll-out of an energy management system (EMS). LoRaWAN was the obvious choice with its long-range capabilities.
Transmission of the data was done by our ComBox.L® communication equipment, which has long battery lifetime and suitability for the harsh industrial environment. In total we installed 36 ComBox certified devices, 11 of which are for gas metering, 10 are for water metering, 5 for compressed air, and 10 are used for electricity meters. The data was gathered and analyzed by advanced software platform GemaLogic®.
A detailed view of energy metrics and reduction of energy consumption in the long run. After using the LoRaWAN-based EMS for almost a year now, Salonit Anhovo is able to monitor its energy efficiency performance.
