European smart factory monitors energy consumption using LoRaWAN

May 30, 2018 | Case Study

Salonit Anhovo, along with others in the diverse process manufacturing space, is facing increasing pressure from environmental regulation. Factories not only need to produce less waste, but also need to use less energy. As the largest cement production factory in Slovenia, Salonit averages 85 GWh consumption and spends upward of €9 million per year on electricity. In order to drive down its energy consumption and operate more efficiently, the company rolled out a wireless energy management system (EMS). This system provides a central dashboard from which the factory can monitor and control energy consumption, in real time, from various equipment on-site. However, with a sprawling 3 km production site, Salonit needed a wireless technology that was able to transmit information from the various pieces of equipment over long distances, was able to withstand a harsh and noisy industrial environment, and had low power consumption.
