Who our customer is

Global Healthcare Production Company

This Global Healthcare Production Facility (GHPF) * is 860,000 square feet.

GHPF develops, manufactures, and sells a diverse range of medical device products. GHPF is also a member of Practice Green health. GHPF adopted a sustainability policy aimed at reducing energy consumption by 20% over 10 years. As part of this policy, GHPF has worked closely with its local utility to implement energy conservation measures, like lighting retrofits. This was the first step; the next was to turbo charge energy savings through new technology,

Set to accomplish

The Solution

Cimetrics was selected to provide its Analytika Pro solution for GHPF. Cimetrics collaborated with Siemens, GHPF’s building automation system provider, to connect to and collect sensor and actuator data from over, 8,500 physical points. Data was collected continuously, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year, totaling over 800,000 data samples per day.

The following systems were monitored: 100 air handling units, 70 chilled water and hot water pumps, 11 chillers, 14 cooling towers, and more than 375 terminal units.

Over 2,500 Analytika software algorithms continuously analyzed the data to
identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption, improve comfort, and reduce operations and maintenance costs.
