Port de Binic: Pier Ports for Power Case Study


 
Port de Binic, France, is a small port located on a leisure harbor in Northwest France. They were looking for a solution to monitor the power utilization by boat owners from a number of access points in its harbor. Their goal was to collect usage data so they could perform a cost analysis which would help identify potential areas for cost savings.
 

Challenges

  • Ability to easily centralize information and display it in a scalable manner that offered local and remote access.
  • Check whether power consumption fit the contract, and if it did not, an automatic reaction needed to send an SMS alarm.
  • Remotely control the connection by a computer in captaincy and on mobile phone of the harbor master.
  • Equipment needed to operate in the harsh environment of a marine harbour.
