One of the basic cornerstones of Smart Cities is the rational and efficient use of energy.
When efficient energy management systems are integrated and managed through the Smart City Global Platform, it is possible to reduce consumption and increase service quality, meaning that additional resources can be allocated to improving infrastructure.
The history of the company has always borne a close relationship to public lighting, giving SICE the knowledge and experience it needs to provide all services related to installation, maintenance, supply, monitoring, Smart City integration, engineering, consultancy, auditing and custom monitoring, such that it is always able to offer customers the best technological options.
Furthermore, SICE has the financial and credit capacity to make changes to technology with savings for customers right from the word go.
SICE provides a full energy service, coordinating investment in boilers, burners, cooling equipment, towers, pipe work, interior lighting, condenser units, maintenance and custom monitoring and verification, necessary to achieve adequate redeemable savings over short periods of uptime for medium term contracts.
SICE combines technical studies and execution capacity with funding investments for necessary changes that are likely to provide economic savings to customers from the word go.
The company's history, with close links to public lighting - mainly in urban areas, has given SICE the knowledge and experience that it needs to provide all its services. Over almost 100 years of service, a wide range of technologies and supplies have been used for installation and maintenance activities in over 1000 residential areas, which bear witness to SICE's experience and quality in this sector.
In recent years, lighting installation and maintenance services have been complemented by the entire range of services that can be offered by an Energy Services Company. SICE takes into account energy supply costs, Smart City monitoring and integration, engineering and consultancy, as well as auditing and follow-up, to the extent necessary to offer our customers the best technological option.
Monuments and historical buildings require specific lighting systems designed to respect unique features and to showcase the monument complex when illuminated.
Colour and protecting external spaces from light pollution are very important considerations for this type of lighting, and specific studies are required for the location and concealment of different types of projectors.
Highways in general, and tunnels in particular require lighting systems with close links to road safety.
The optimization of installations and control systems, as well as coordination with operating systems, allow consumption to be moderated with more economic and energy efficient systems, without affecting required safety levels. A specialist team adapts and plans this type of lighting, in accordance with regulations laid down by each country or city, and integrates it into control systems if necessary.
As an integrating company, SICE is able to source a wide range of solutions related both to the product and functions required by each customer. Lighting based on traffic demand or pedestrian demand (roundabouts, zebra crossings), with direct light-by-light control that can be designed upon customer request.
Lighting needs associated with the use of parks and gardens involve a range of design, installation and operation criteria that are totally different to road lighting. Lighting diagrams, times and use-dependent control are factors that to a greater or lesser extent affect lighting in these types of areas.
Centralized systems or lighting based on the presence of people are becoming increasingly common and are replacing simple time regulated systems that are still commonplace.
Installation and maintenance of different lighting centralization systems through on-site integration of different information storage and sending devices that allow the behavior of the installation to be analyzed, and make it possible to control the installation.
The centralized monitoring of control panels and the generation of alarms in the event of any type of fault in the equipment or electrical parameters, allow behavior to be audited and the maintenance response to be improved.
SICE operates one of the largest public lighting monitoring installations, with over 2600 panels and 250,000 light points in a single city. Similarly, SICE is a pioneer in the management and control of point-to-point lighting in tunnels and has installed DALI regulation to more than 45,000 fluorescent light points in the longest urban tunnels in the world.
SICE can provide everything from complete EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) for photovoltaic plants, to any components necessary for the construction of photovoltaic facilities from the ground up, either as a fixed installation or with single or twin axis solar trackers. SICE provides services needed by each client, on time and to the required quality: Basic engineering, civil construction, electro-mechanical installations, grid connections, detailed engineering, as-built plans, project management, etc.
With dozens of photovoltaic installations on roofs successfully delivered, SICE is capable of implementing architectural integration, selecting the most appropriate components for specific roofs, basic engineering, complete EPC, connecting the plant to the grid and filing the legal paperwork necessary for authorization.
SICE works on all types of isolated installations, from the smallest for private users to medium size installations necessary for health centres or schools, bringing clean energy to remote locations not reached by electricity companies.
SICE constructs micro-grids connected to the electricity company. These can either operate independently or in conjunction with the main grid to ensure that customers always have power at an adequate cost.
