Honeywell partners Resorts World Sentosa to build Singapore’s first large scale Cloud-based Building Management System with focus on decarbonization
SINGAPORE, 17 JULY 2023 – Honeywell has penned a strategic partnership with premium lifestyle destination resort Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) to provide seamless and advanced energy efficient solutions to the integrated resort’s daily operations. This journey will see Honeywell implement Singapore’s first large scale Cloud-based Building Management System (BMS) for RWS which includes several innovative features to tackle decarbonization.
This partnership will equip RWS, a 49-hectare integrated resort home to world-class attractions, luxury hotels, award-winning MICE venues and more, with smarter control of its building systems and facilities and achieve significant energy savings made possible by Honeywell’s latest building management technologies such as smart dynamic energy optimization, fault detection diagnostics system and performance centric maintenance. Honeywell and RWS will also jointly develop RWS’ centralized command centre into an open industry showcase centre to stimulate industry-wide adoption and innovation.
“Honeywell is pleased to have RWS on board in our journey towards shaping the future of building management systems. I would like to commend RWS for not only adopting the latest BMS technology but also stepping forward to specially commission an open showcase centralized command centre so as to offer a platform for collaborative learning. This is a significant milestone for the industry as both Honeywell and RWS are committed to showcasing our insights and best practices with the sole objective of driving growth and innovation in the adoption of technology and connectivity,” said Yadav Sharad, Vice President and General Manager, Honeywell Building Technologies ASEAN.
The implementation of ‘Next Generation Building Management System’ will see RWS become the first large scale adopter for Cloud Based BMS in Singapore. This programme enables the migration of on-premise to cloud for mobile connectivity, with seamless system updates, minimum downtime and caters for big data analytics and API integration.
One feature of the ‘Next Generation Building Management System’ is the Smart Dynamic Energy Optimization of ACMV system which will provide real time automated adjustment to achieve up to 4GWh energy savings annually for RWS while maintaining guest thermal comfort level in Singapore’s tropical climate. This is equivalent to the energy use of over 880 4-room HDB flats per year.
Another feature will see RWS adopt the ‘Fault Detection Diagnostics System’ and reliability centric maintenance which will see the utilization of large data through advanced analysis of real-time events and trends for 24/7 intelligent system surveillance for operational insights. This platform will provide a transition from a traditional reactive to preventive and predictive response to increase service level and reduce fault calls to improve overall efficiency of the building and productivity of its occupants.
Honeywell is also responsible for integrating RWS’ BMS with lifts, escalator and fire system for full oversight of its buildings’ operations. This will include the installation of IOT sensors for comprehensive utility management system and tracking, reduce utility consumption, as well as streamlining complex workflows and optimizing response.
These features are set to significantly improve RWS’ energy efficiency. RWS was the first destination in the world to be certified to both the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Destination Criteria and GSTC Industry Criteria for Hotels in 2021, and is making progressive efforts in becoming a carbon-neutral tourism destination by 2030.
As part of the partnership, RWS will also be part of Honeywell’s Early Adopter Program where cutting-edge building technology will be test bedded at the integrated resort to support a continuous improvement in decarbonisation.
Honeywell continues to move forward towards a sustainable future as the company is on its way to delivering its commitment across the globe to implement innovative solutions in improving demand, community resiliency and grid reliability with lower energy cost and bridging the gap within the needs and demands.
