Integral Energy Management System Project

Electricity
  • Integration of the company and redundant meters by IEC protocol.
  • 34 consumption points with Modbus communication
Natural gas
  • Integration of the main meter via web service
  • 6 points of in-process natural gas consumption per OP customer
COMPRESSED AIR

Integration of compressed air production, pressure and temperature (OPC)

PRODUCTION
  • Integration of instant production by forging line and process temperatures (OPC)
  • Integration of manufacturing references and configuration of lines for each product (OPC)
  • Integration of data from other products through communication with ERP

With co2st-TEM, CIE Galfor has now an innovative solution that facilitates detailed monitoring and control of consumption, with energy efficiency indicators by product and reference, manufacturing line and work shift.

On the other hand, the tool alerts on consumption deviations against targets set for different operating conditions.

In short, CIE Galfor has strengthened its decision-making capacity and updated its continuous improvement process applied to energy production and management.
