With SmartMetering solution, COMBIS enabled Gavrilović an insight in real time energy resource consumption, ensured lower costs, optimization of consumption, lower risks and less malfunctions as well as quick deviation identification.
Leading IT service provider in Croatia COMBIS implemented SmartMetering solution in Gavrilović.
SmartMetering is a solution for company’s energy efficiency which connects different data resources and enables their integration and processing. Solution provides a real time insight in energy resource consumption, secures lower costs, optimization of consumption, lower risks and less malfunctions as well as quick deviation identification.
"By implementing this system we enabled the user data integration and ensured standardized cost calculations, cost planning and analysis of manufacture work. Gavrilović, with SmartMetering, follows consumption of electricity, gas, steam and water from several hundred measuring points. Part of the solution are also quick measurements of processed quantities (pressure, temperature, moisture, etc.) which is updated almost every minute", commented Anita Mikić, Key Account Manager at COMBIS.
With quick measurements, employees at Gavrilović's energy department can react in case of deviations from parameters. All data is archived and numerous reports are available in order to follow the consumption costs per specific productions lines and to know in every moment what is happening with energy consumption in production.
"After project’s implementation, energy department at Gavrilović significantly gained on time and efficiency and lowered production costs. Because of the size of the production and a great number of installations, we can detect system anomalies or leakage in a short time. Besides, all data is reachable at one place, there is no more manual upload of any kind and now we can truly talk about a real analysis, optimization and planning of energy consumption“, noted Igor Vukelić, head of IT business solutions at Gavrilović.
Counter measurements and processed sizes are constantly archived in intervals of one hour, 15 minutes and one minute, depending of measurement type. From the archive, daily, monthly and yearly reports are available.
"In today’s world the cost of energy resources is constantly increasing. To optimize consumption it is necessary to have a quality system for monitoring and analysis of energy resource consumption, as well as to ensure key elements for consumption decrease. I am very pleased that we have participated on a project that achieved all of that", said Robert Rac from ASR Grupa, COMBIS’ partner in implementation at Gavrilović.
