The next goal is to operate Alpentherme Gastein as a “zero-emissions spa.” This means making the entire heat supply carbon-free using power from renewable energy sources – by means of a heat pump powered by green electricity – as well as thermal water. New comprehensive measures are in progress to support the spa in achieving this goal. Building automation has already been migrated to the existing measurement and control technology and expanded. In the future, all building processes at Alpentherme Gastein will be visualized and optimized using Desigo CC, which is the technological backbone for smart building infrastructure. It enables communication between the various energy producers through an open, powerful and always up-to-date platform, increasing convenience, efficiency, resilience and security.
In order to continuously optimize and increase the performance of the technical systems in terms of functionality and energy efficiency, Siemens Navigator will be used to map and evaluate energy consumption and operating situations. Siemens Navigator combines a variety of plant and maintenance information with performance data, allowing unnecessary energy consumption to be detected and improved immediately.
In the previous modernization project, Siemens building technology experts combined advanced technology and a maximum feel-good factor for guests in just ten months. The solutions are now being optimized even further to transform Alpentherme Gastein into one of the first “zero-emissions spas” in Austria.
