Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority adopts AI enabled Building Management System
Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) today has announced that it has successfully upgraded its existing Integrated Building Management System (IBMS) that looks after 40 buildings within Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) to an AI enabled IBMS.
The new technology has helped DSOA save approximately AED1 million per month. This number takes into consideration both a reduction in energy usage and a reduction in facilities manpower.
More specifically, the benefits of the new system include a significant reduction in energy-saving totaling 36% per year and the number of operators required to manage the 40 buildings – from 110 to five. Furthermore, the software is based on a framework that integrates a range of devices, regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol, hence allowing DSOA greater flexibility.
In addition, from the centralized control room, the DSOA facilities management team can monitor electricity usage in real-time, giving greater ability to make appropriate adjustments and send alerts during high-consumption instances. Lastly, the IBMS grants the ability to capture and store more historical data to feed analytics tools, which help DSOA’s facilities management team to drive toward continual energy reduction and performance improvements.
