Cetetherm manufactures district heating substations for all types of building. With the help of IoT, the solutions become more cost-effective and environmentally friendly. The communication is provided by Spirius.

Many district heating substations are closed systems that manage the heating of an individual building via a small computer. It works well, but can be better with IoT and AI.

– A district heating substation is a physical unit with pumps, heat exchangers and hydraulics, but by digitizing it, more possibilities are available, says Patrick Isacson, consulting product manager for Cetetherm and continues:

– Through our solution Cetetherm Optimizer, the substation is connected and we can see all data and control the flows in a smarter way, which enables a reduction of energy consumption in the building by around 10 percent. A solution that both saves money and reduces climate impact.

In order to get the substation to communicate with the outside world, Spirius IoT SIM-cards were chosen.

– A mobile connection is more attractive than a fixed network because then we own the access point and don’t have to be in someone else’s infrastructure. Spirius IoT subscriptions are flexible, scalable and based on an IoT focus. In addition, Spirius is on top of roaming in Europe where we have a large market and they are also a strategic partner for us. With the big telecommunications companies, we had only been an insignificant account. Spirius knows what they do and what we need, concludes Patrick Isacson.

The service will be launched in full scale in January 2021.

Spirius are proud to have Cetetherm as customers.
