Digital monitoring to reduce resource use in the meat industry

The goal of the FI.RMS + SMILE project is to meter, sub-meter and analyse more than 40 energy parameters at SerinCar92, the main abattoir in Asturias. With up to 150 tons of meat production a day, and with energy costs of more than € 500.000 per year, adding several layers of automation to the monitoring hardware and software is key to finding technical anomalies or unexpected consumptions.

The project will compare data with best practices in the company and / or in the food industry, to preview future consumption and to analyse different options, such as investing in renewable energy for better savings.

Asturias aims to reach annual savings of 10 to 20 per cent through this S3FOOD project. This way, the FI.RMS + SMAILE project will reduce SerinCar92’s overall impact on the environment, as well as improving their income.
