Salonit Anhovo is the leading cement manufacturer in Slovenia. As an environmentally and energy-friendly company, Salonit decided to carry out an energy management project. The project included an introduction to energy management systems and energy optimization in cement manufacturing. It is a large industrial area and LoRaWAN communication was the only suitable alternative to the classical wired system.
Salonit uses over 90 GWh of electrical energy annually, more than 8 GWh of gas, and
over 400,000 m3 technological water. The cost of consumed energy amounts to more than 6,000,000 EUR/year. The industrial area spans over an area of more than 6 km.
