Pro.Energy for controlling Energy Efficiency

The Pro.Energy module for controlling energy efficiency.

“The OPC UA communication protocol available in both Movicon 11 and Movicon.Next made it easy to exchange information from one application with the next.”

The Cantine Riunite & CIV technical department uses Pro. Energy to control energy consumptions in accordance with the directives of the Legislation Decree n. 102 of 4th July 2014.

It has therefore become essential for organizations to introduce energy management systems with the aim of reducing, through efficiency, energy consumptions that constitute a large part in production costs. In addition to this, the enforcement of increasingly stringent regulations are obliging companies to adopt new energy efficiency standards, such as those defined by the recent ISO 50001 standard introduced in June 2011 to replace the UNI EN 16001 standard, concerning Energy Management systems.

Cantine Riunite & Civ is one of the most important wineries in Italy who is specialized in producing sparkling wine, such as Lambrusco, Pignoletto and Prosecco, from local vineyards sold on the domestic and international market.
The business model of Cantine Riunite & Civ is founded on a solid winemaking cooperative with around 1,800 viticulturist members who cultivate 4,000 hectares of vineyards. It boasts an integrated production system that ensures product quality and traceability with eight wineries and three production centers.

The administrative headquarters reside in Campegine where there is also one of their production plants; winemaking areas, as well as wine cellars and other production plants are located in the DOCG, DOC and IGT regions in the province of Reggio Emilia, Modena and Treviso.
The company manages brand names which include Riunite and Albinea Canali, Cantine Maschio and Maschio of Cavalieri, Righi and Gaetano Righi.

The importance of energy consumption in organizations reflects on the issues of world energy that is constantly growing in demand but diminishing in supply with steep costs and negative effects on the environment with global warming caused by pollution.

The ISO 50001 standard therefore represents an opportunity for every organization to confront the energy issue effectively and establish new policies that enable them to follow a systemic approach in improving energy efficiency through targeted investments with rapid returns and the consequent benefits.

It specifies which corrective measures organizations
need to implement in order establish energy management systems that are capable of achieving continual energy efficiency improvement.

This is what has led Cantine Riunite & CIV of Campegine, the excellence of Italian productivity
in the Emilia Region, to develop monitoring systems of the various energy vectors. This application was entirely developed by Gianluca Torelli, an expert electronic from the maintenance team, who used both Progea’s Movicon platforms.
