KBC announced the release of Visual MESA Energy Management System 6.1 (VM-EMS) for industrial facilities. It reduces energy costs by providing scheduling and optimal advice in real-time. This allows for quick and accurate responses to changing process demand, which automatically adapt to current operations. VM-EMS pulls information from utility systems into one model, which is accessible through a web browser.

This release builds on KBC’s successful track record in real-time optimisation with new capabilities for automated operations scheduling. Users can set up ‘Automatic Runs’ at a daily, or other predefined frequency. The system then automatically generates the optimal schedule without operator intervention, saving time and helping users to make timely and efficient decisions.

VM-EMS is a web-based and mobile-compliant solution. The user interface has a new look and the system is accessible on mobile devices. This allows operators to optimise and monitor energy cost and emissions on-the-go.

"Energy costs are a large part of industrial facility operations expenses," said Mike Aylott, KBC’s chief technology officer.

"Environmental regulations for emissions constraints just compounds the issue. Significant cost savings are possible by using an energy management system that monitors the site’s energy usage in order to recommend lowest cost utility operation. Visual MESA Energy Management System does just that."
