Building Management System
for New Port Terminal Buildings, Qatar
|End User:||NPP Authority, State of Qatar|
|Start Date:||Feb 2016|
|End Date:||Nov 2016|
Trans Gulf Engineering Services contracted Avanceon to install Building Management System to control and monitor HVAC systems for twelve buildings under the Qatar New Port Package 0032
- Field installation and cabling of HVAC Devices for 12 Buildings
- Integration of equipment with DDC Controllers on different protocols like BACnet, Modbus and hardwired I/Os for all 12 BMS/HVAC Systems.
Avanceon proposed Schneider’s BMS for the New Port Package 0032.
- Struxureware Building Operation Advanced Displays for monitoring and control of the buildings.
- Schneider Automation Server with local input/output modules for field equipment control.
The Schneider Automation Server can communicate with other third-party systems like Fire Alarm System, VRF System, Security System, Lighting Control System, Chiller Plant Manager and Air Handling Units on open protocols like BACnet, Modbus and LonWorks.
Control Equipment Used:
Struxureware Building Operation displays for Monitoring and Control of twelve DDC control panels.
DDC Control panels included Schneider Automation Servers and its local IO modules and Panel Mounted Struxureware Advanced Displays. Automation Server to control all MEP services and field instrumentation as well as communicate with third party devices on Open Protocol for monitoring and control.
The Smart Struxureware BMS is of distributed system architecture and has three level of control as shown:
Building Automation Level:
Consists of field sensors, volt-free contacts and intelligent standalone DDC BACnet controllers. The operation associated with the equipment is achieved in this level itself without intervention of any higher network devices.
Consists of automation and enterprise servers that are capable of handling and storing the Building Automation functions like Trends, History, Totalization, Alarm Routing, Co-ordination with field devices for alarms or any information, optimum start/stop etc.
Information Management Level:
Consists of human-machine interface such as Advanced Displays Operator, Workstations, Graphics User Interface, Information Management to format according to the client’s requirements.
Major Components of Smart Structure Building Management /HVAC Systems include:
Advanced Display HMIs
Automation Server IO Modules
The aim of the project was to supply, install, test and commission HVAC/Building Management System for the twelve buildings under NPP0032 package with local monitoring and Control. In addition to BMS/HVAC control system supply, instrumentation and its installation was also included in the scope of the project.
Below are the key objectives that were accomplished over the course of this project.
