learnd complete Schneider Electric Ecostruxure BMS install at Police Operational Command Centre

The Police Force wanted to create a facility to give the teams that are leading the way in the fight against criminal gangs the best facilities to do that from. 

The new centre will also save costs by enabling the Force to release a number of small, leased buildings which are scattered across Merseyside and are no longer up to standard. This will reduce Merseyside Police’s annual running costs, ensuring funds can be redirected towards front line policing.

The centre is an integral part of the Commissioner’s 10-year strategy to transform and modernise Merseyside Police’s station and facilities while working to reduce the annual running costs of the police’s buildings by £2.5m. 

About the project

This huge site contains 11 new BMS control panels and a large number of air handling units, with the control for the ventilation and heating being via the BMS. We also fitted CO2 sensors throughout the building to reduce energy when the building is not at full occupancy. If the CO2 is low then the BMS reduces the supply air into the room, working the supply fans at a reduced speed. Furthermore, we’ve integrated with the site’s air conditioning to provide full monitoring and control.

Our install was completed on time and to budget, with the site was integrated into the Schneider Electric EcoStruxure head-end at Merseyside Police HQ as the final step.
