SPIE Est renovates Fessenheim lock monitoring and control system. Illkirch, 12 November 2015 -SPIE has won the contract to renovate Fessenheim's lock monitoring and control system; that was first placed in service in 1956 on the Grand Canal d'Alsace located by the Rhine... "This operation is part of the campaign to upgrade the automatic control of locks on the river Rhine, these installations date back to between 1995 and 1999 (previous-generation automatic control systems), "says Raymond Wolff, Monitoring and Control Department Engineer at EDF's hydraulic engineering centre (CIH) and project manager
This solar power facility will be equipped with a monitoringsystem for its remote management and to measure its performance and energy availability factor. The plant will eventually generate 6 072 MWh a year, enough power for 1 340 homes
Recent award winners include: a weight overload sensor for vehicles, a mobile video monitoringsystem using digital transmission and a carbon capture foam. Some innovations are so promising that they are even patented and marketed!
Following on from a contract for multitechnical maintenance of two basic nuclear installations (reactor buildings and APEC fuel storage shop (1)) at the Creys Malville power plant, EDF CIDEN has awarded SPIE Nucléaire a new contract worth more than 1 4 million for the engineering, supply, installation and testing of 28)KRT(2 and)KRZ(2 radiation and health protection monitoringsystems
This encompasses planning and configuration, infrastructural interfaces, the electrotechnical equipment of the energy and building technology, cooling systems, ventilation systems and sanitary installations as well as the entire security technology including access controls, lock systems, alarm and monitoringsystems and fire-extinguishing systems
There are so many opportunities, not just to develop our current fields of business, but also to build up new areas of know-how, such as non- intrusive predictive maintenance and the deployment of new monitoringsystems. The underlying basis for everything must always be a combination of safety, quality and operational excellence
As a result of the real-time monitoringsystem set up by SPIE, initial data is already available to help maintenance teams manage buildings so as to meet specific energy savings goals (more than 50 % in final energy savings). In September 2013, SPIE and have signed an energy performance service contract for six buildings in the town, targeting a 25 % reduction in energy consumption and a 29 % cut in carbon emissions
