Automated Logic WebCTRL® System’s Reporting Capabilities Key to HARBEC’s Superior Energy Performance (SEP) Certi cation

The Challenge

• Attain ISO 50001 Superior Energy Performance (SEP) certification to achieve carbon neutrality by 2013 • Increase real-time collection of resource consumption and energy usage data

• Integrate monitoring and measurement functions into existing WebCTRL® building automation system

The Players

HARBEC, a manufacturer of tightly toleranced plastic and metal components, is committed to sustainable operations. Founded in 1977, the Ontario, New York-based company has embraced a number of conservation practices, including the installation of its Combined Heat and Power (CHP) cogeneration plant in 2001, the installation of wind turbines in 2002 and 2013, and a facility-wide LED lighting upgrade in 2014. Today, the CHP plant and wind turbines generate more than half the electricity needed to power the company’s operations; exhaust heat from the plant is used to heat and cool the facility. From its management offices to the production floor, a culture of environmental responsibility permeates the company, which serves the aerospace, defense, security, medical, telecommunications, transportation and sports/leisure industries.

In 2012, HARBEC management set a goal of achieving ISO 50001 SEP certification in order to achieve carbon neutrality the following year. That decision would mandate the collection of precise resource consumption and energy usage data – a task that would require the expanded use of its Automated Logic WebCTRL system.

The Solution

The task presented a new challenge for HARBEC’s WebCTRL system,“not from an automation standpoint, but from a monitoring and measuring standpoint,” commented Jeff Eisenhauer, manager, energy systems, HARBEC. The project began with the company’s acquisition of metering devices sourced through Logical Control Solutions, Inc., its longtime building automation technology provider, which installed the WebCTRL system in 2001. In 2012, Logical Control Solutions installed sub-metering systems on all electrical generation and major

The WebCTRL system now documents the plant’s use of compressed air, natural gas, hot and chilled water as well as all city water consumption points throughout the facility. HARBEC is using the system’s EnergyReportsTM application, with its extensive trending capabilities, to track energy usage at

energy-consuming equipment, including

the Capstone® microturbines within its CHP plant; the Carrier® air handling units and absorption chillers; and the two on-site wind turbines. Reporting capabilities were then integrated into the WebCTRL system.
