Southwater is an exciting £250 million development in the heart of Telford, Shropshire, between Telford & Wrekin Council and Southwater Event Group. The development includes shops, restaurants, a cinema, car park, ice rink and commercial properties and is part of a wider redevelopment of the Telford town centre.
A brand new building management system was required in the Southwater Energy Centre to control and monitor the brand new heat generation plant which had a key aim of providing low temperature hot water to a number of the keys developments within the new Southwater development via a district heating network scheme.
The main performance objectives of the BMS was to control and monitor the district scheme plant items to:
- Ensure that they operated safely & reliably
- Ensure that they operated in an energy efficient manner
- Monitor plant performance and highlight and report any plant failure or performance problems
- Monitor utility consumption
Nyke Energy were able to deliver a fully functioning building management system to specification by utilising Cylon UC32 controllers with Modbus capability.
Nyke Energy effectively managed the project from inception to completion including the control panel design and manufacture, electrical installation, control strategy and software design, final commissioning and end user training.
Nyke’s robust solution provided Telford & Wrekin council with remote critical alarm monitoring, UPS battery backup and remote monitoring of plant status and energy performance.
