ATLANTA, GA. — Bluewater Health has implemented the Honeywell Forge Enterprise Performance Management solution at its hospitals in Petrolia and Sarnia, Ont. in an effort to reduce the building’s operational costs, be more efficient and improve building resiliency.
Bluewater underwent a digital transformation for its renovated facility in Sarnia and its 110-year-old location in Petrolia. Honeywell Forge Digitized Maintenance was deployed in the facilities to analyze and optimize building systems maintenance at the hospitals. The solution recommends early and preventative actions based on live and historical data to avoid costly, unnecessary changes and reduce unplanned, reactive work on building systems, a release indicates.
The solution has helped the hospital reduce electricity usage by an average of eight per cent of expected consumption and reduce gas usage by almost 12 per cent against the target over the first few months of the deployment.
“Using Honeywell Forge, Bluewater Health can pull thousands of building maintenance data points into one dashboard and receive real-time analysis of building performance,” states a release. “The plant maintenance team can now manage the building through a proactive maintenance process of curated recommendations. Honeywell Forge Digitized Maintenance is providing Bluewater Health with new insights from more than 1,200 equipment inputs in the building, showing building performance and finding opportunities for improvement — before small problems become big issues.”
