The Plaza Hotel:
BMS Design, Install, Commission – Sauter modulo 6
The 4 star Plaza Hotel in Tallaght is a modern hotel in South County Dublin with spectacular views of the Dublin & Wicklow mountains. In 2019, Sirus was engaged to install a Building Management System to efficiently control the hotels heating systems and maintain a comfortable ambience for all visitors.
The Solution – Sauter modulo 6
The Sauter BMS installation consisted of an East & West Boiler House from the initial mechanical installation to the BMS integration with the newly installed mechanical plant.
Each of the boiler houses consisted of the following:
- 3 no. Hamworthy Stratton LPHW boilers
- 2 no. Cosmo Gas Aquaden fired HWS
- Associated LPHW & HWS pumps c/w VSD’s
Both boiler houses were fitted with a new DPU housing (Figure 1) the Sauter modulo 6 generation of controllers with the required I/O modules allowing efficient control of LPHW Boilers supplying LPHW to AHUs and radiators circuits for all floors & the HWS system.
As can be seen from the photos in Figure 1 below, the layout and size of the Sauter modulo 6 Controllers and I/O modules allow for smaller panel requirements while leaving room for expansion. Sauter modulo 6 can be extended to take up to 26 I/O modules if required.
The 3rd Floor Boiler House was a retrofit of an existing panel that needed an upgrade. The original panel housed a Trend IQ250 with an available I/O count of 96. This has been retrofitted with Sauter modulo 6 generation of controllers (Figure 2) with an available I/O count of 60 with room for expansion.
This panel controls both East & West side existing plant such as extract fans, HWS valves for buffer tanks & radiator circuit valves for individual floors. This results in efficient control of heating and a comfortable ambient temperature.
Sirus BMS Engineers used the Sauter modulo 6 App which enhances fault finding for issues and callouts and contains a useful augmented reality feature.
