Total monitoring and 40% efficiency on HVAC.

Founded in 1889,Michelin has an international presencewith over 70 production plants on 5 continents. Michelin Alessandria is a production plant consisting of various buildings that extend over a total covered area of 33,500 sqm. The plant is active in three shifts, 7 days a week, and produces more than 1,000,000 tyres every year.

Project

Enerbrain worked at the project with two main goals:
1. Provide a detailed knowledge of the energy flows of the production site through a real-time monitoring dashboard
2. Reduce energy consumption and workers’ complaints about ventilation, heating and air conditioning in the most energy-intensive buildings without stopping production and without modifying the HVAC system.
To achieve these objectives, Enerbrain divided the plant into several main thermal zones, implemented a monitoring system and an actuation system that would allow the automatic control of energy flows for ventilation and heating.
