In the new logistics center of KAM, KABTEL implemented a solution for the automation of the cooling system.

On a total area of ​​60,000m2, in the largest logistics center so far in Macedonia, built according to the most modern standards, the building extends over an area of ​​16,000m2. It is located just a few kilometers from the center of Skopje. It has a capacity of 6,800 pallets for dry products, as well as 2,500 pallets for frozen products, fruits, vegetables and fresh meat. The process of receiving and storing products at special temperature regimes, in appropriate chambers such as fruits, vegetables, meat, chocolates, dairy and deep-frozen products, which are subject to strict controls, are one of the most important segments of the operation.

Challenges

The goal of the project – Automation of the cooling system in KAM

The goal of the project, which KABTEL in cooperation with the Vatalco company has carried out in the facility, is an automated 24/7 supply of the necessary amounts of water to the cooling system for the needs of the logistics center.

The main task of the BMS and automation and network solutions department of KABTEL, which it successfully implemented, is the automated monitoring and control of the distribution of the required amount of water for the needs of the cooling system. The water supply is carried out from three wells with a depth of 50 m in which Vatalco has previously installed submersible pumps with a power of 7.5 Kw.

In each of the wells, KABTEL has installed electrical cabinets in which frequency regulators from the renowned HITACHI brand are installed, with all the accompanying equipment, to enable the safe operation of the pumps, and a connection with the main cabinet where the HITACHI PLC controller is located is also enabled. which is in charge of managing and controlling each of the wells in a common system. The whole process is monitored on the WEINTEK operator panel which is installed on the main control cabinet.

Benefits

With this solution and the European standards of operation, fully automated control and monitoring of the process without the participation of the human factor, huge savings, maximum efficiency, as well as an active contribution to environmental protection are enabled. Namely, complete optimization of most processes also enables a reduced carbon footprint in nature, by reducing the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere by about 900 tons.
