Early 2018 Wireless Value was invited by her Spanish reseller Suministro Y Calibration Industrial (SCI) in Bilbao to participate in an extensive development project. The objective of the project is to develop and validate an innovative and efficient solution to the energy intensive process industries for energy and resource flexibility (CIRMET solution). Industrial processes continue to run using raw materials by-products and/or waste material. The process should run on fossil fuel, energy recovery and sustainable energy.
In total 15 companies, universities and research institutes are participating. It is an international group with participants from Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, France , Poland and Italy. The project has a budget of over 10 million euro, a lead-time of 3.5 years and is financed by the EU for 70%.
Wireless Value role is to develop the wireless system for data gathering, data storage and data evaluation. In the project we will execute the following projects:
- Develop WiSensys modules for use in ATEX area’s
- Modules for energy measurements
- Modules to be used for planned maintenance
- Introduction of control functions for WiSensys (open/close; on/off etc.)
We expect to have the first products ready early 2020
