Case Study


Support of the operating personnel in daily building operation through AI-supported analyses. At the same time, the aim is to better „understand“ one‘s own building in order to further optimize operations in a user-centric and needs-based manner.


By connecting to the Emalytics cloud platform and creating a digital twin of all installations with the help of aedifion, building operation is permanently monitored and analyzed. This make sit possible to reduce energy consumption in line with demand.The monitoring of the modern plant technology is now supplemented via a central dashboard in the cloud.


79 500 € € annual cost savings  (4,69 €/m²/a)
518 MWh annual energy savings(30,60 kWh/m²/a)
227 t CO2 annually reduced emissions (13,38 kg /m²/a)

Three Phases to Success

In order to meet the requirements of sustainable building operation and meaningful system monitoring in THE SHIP, three phases were central:

1. The simple provision of data from the Phoenix Contact Emalytics IoT framework.

2. The structuring of this data into more than 150 digital twins by experienced aedifion engineers

3. The continuous analysis of the systems and the optimization of the operation according to the needs.On the basis of this process, SHIP was able to identify and implement significant energy savings in a very short time.were identified and implemented. This approach plays a key role in evolutiq‘s digital sustainability strategy.

Customer Feedback

With the Emalytics cloud platform, we have a powerful tool to continuously monitor and optimize the highly technical building operations in THE SHIP. Using the solution gives us a great way to optimize consumption and emissions in a sustainable way . This is especially exciting with a focus on the future.
