With this integration, S3 Innovate’s clients can leverage advanced analytics, visualization, and machine learning along with taking predictive and preventive measures to outsource the existing risk of network.
One such case being, Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has been championing the green building movement in the country and has introduced its BCA Green Mark rating scheme—a building rating system designed for the tropics and sub-tropics with a strong focus on the actual energy efficiency of building systems. “We partnered with Microsoft, Cushman & Wakefield, and S&I Systems to build the ‘Chiller Efficiency Smart Portal’, powered by Microsoft Azure’s suite of IoT services,” expounds Soon. “We are glad that S3 Innovate was able to overcome the challenges and meet our expectations in the development of the portal. S3 was able to quickly apply its IT expertise to integrate IOT, energy management and data collection from the buildings’ subsystems together at the same time apply data analytic to make sense of the data stored in the cloud,” affirms Ang Kian Seng, BCA’s Group Director of the Environmental Sustainability Group. The portal enabled BCA and Building owners to access and make comparisons of chiller plant performance trends across multiple buildings, stakeholders to make quick and insight-based decisions on scheduling preventive maintenance, and negotiate performance-based contracts with their chiller providers. Moreover, being a great technology partner for Cushman & Wakefield by making use of their field energy audit experience and perceiving the project needs, S3 Innovate ensured a smooth development of this pilot project by BCA. “S3 Innovate has been a great technology partner that complements our strengths in the energy solutions domain. They understand our project inputs quickly, which significantly contributed to the smooth development of BCA’s pilot project,” says Lee Zhen Yi, Deputy Director Energy and Sustainability.
In the coming years, S3 Innovate envisions bringing more flexible cutting-edge models to improve the connectivity for its global customers. “We are continuously working to bring best-in-class service portals for our clients and climbing the ladder, we also intend to map our services in Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam,” concludes Soon.
