OCS were the lead integrator responsible for implementing a common graphical user interface which integrates MECD’s BMS system, field devices, lighting controls, process extract systems, coherent metering system, chillers and combined heat and power (CHP) system.
The multi million pound project integrates 11,000 main plant points, 16,000 field points, 18 plantrooms and 46 air handling units connected with BACnet Honeywell Hawk controllers.
This allows the University to control and manage all of its environmental systems from one common point. Email alarms are in place across all systems to allow immediate response if any problems occur.
“MECD is an extremely complex development, with lots of different environments used by thousands of people that all need to be managed as efficiently as possible. It is the biggest project OCS have ever been involved in and we are proud to be playing a role in helping the University of Manchester to make progress towards its zero carbon goal.”
