2014 - 15 conferences
At Schneider’s Software Global Customer Conference, Aena's for 'Smart City Management' of 46 Airports across Spain, using the Wonderware System Platform was presented. This was an example of integration of over 1 million different signals coming from a myriad of sub-systems being effectively managed in a common way to ensure uptime, security, and energy efficiency.
International Paper’s story was about improving energy efficiency by integrating sensor-based information in combination with SimSci, Schneider’s advanced process control software.
At the Emerson Global User Exchange, the session on "Enabling Water & Energy Reductions Through Expanded Utility Metering" was there. A presentation was made by the system integrator and Emerson on how they implemented an energy management project for a major beverage manufacturer. The team implemented a facility-wide monitoring system that included monitoring steam, condensate, water, liquid ammonia, and plant air that span four separate business units. A Peruvian mining company presented on how they were able to control the total load of air used on their processes, mainly on flotation cells while reducing the amount of energy used to pump the air into the plant. The Galloway Company, a dairy firm saved $120,000 annually in sewer costs by increasing the reliability and accuracy of measurement with modern connected technology.
At the GE Intelligent Platforms 2014 User Summit there were also numerous examples of how companies have used GE’s SmartSignal and CSense products to process data from IoT-connected sensors to improve energy and utility performance. Jeff Immelt gave keynote address. Speakers from companies like Kimberly Clark, Summer Garden Foods, Duke Energy, and GE Transportation and GE’s jet engine group, gave examples on how they are using the data available from the IoT with the analytic capabilities of CSense and SmartSignal to save billions of dollars.
