smart France S.A.S. had already been successfully supported during the planning of the Hambach factory with the aid of building simulation. The factory is thus particularly well positioned with regard to the specific energy requirement. In addition it was possible to markedly reduce the necessary investment costs for the central heating in comparison to conventionally executed planning.
This planning support was also used for the extension of the factory. In the paint shop the layout of the production processes was closely monitored by a simulation in order to be able to cut out air conditioning through the arrangement and layout of the workstations.
A component of the comprehensive energy management was also the development of a database solution with which the requirement for gas, water, heat, power and compressed air can be settled and administered with the suppliers on site and the utility companies.
