Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Another BACnet success story is now available to inform and guide the building automation community. BACnet International Gold member KMC Controls and Turkish manufacturer of leading-edge prescription pharmaceutical products, Neutec Pharmaceuticals, completed expanding Neutec Pharmaceutical’s 80,000 square foot facility to over 400,000 square feet in late 2012. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are subject to stringent storage and reporting requirements with regard to environmental data within the plant, and all critical production and storage areas must have temperature and humidity recorded every 15 minutes in order to maintain compliance with the standard. The system installed includes a fully interoperable BACnet package.
“The system has allowed the facility to operate at peak efficiency because we know when we have a problem with our controlled environment long before it is out of tolerance,” stated A. Tarkan Asalkan, General Manager of the Neutec facility. “This allows my facilities staff to take corrective action before we lose any production. The reliability of the control system is unbelievable… This level of control means we can improve production rates by 5-10%, which translates to a lot of money!”
“BACnet International’s focus is on facilitating BACnet adoption and user success,” stated Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International. “It is encouraging to see this evidenced in projects such as Neutec Pharmaceuticals.”
