New Delhi, March 13, 2012: IBM and Ingersoll Rand have come together to provide Remote Energy and Asset Management solutions in India to drive greater energy efficiencies for organizations who are engaged in infrastructure creation or maintenance for sectors like commerce, hospitality, health, pharma etc. This solution leverages IBM’s Intelligent Building Management (IIBM) system (a combination of monitoring, asset management and advanced analytics) along with Ingersoll Rand’s Energy optimisation technologies, to help trigger preventive and predictive maintenance to create Smarter Buildings.
Buildings in India account for 30% of energy consumption. Of this consumption, the major usage is due to HVAC(Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning) and lighting. With rising energy costs, organizations are facing capital and operating budget challenges. Maximizing capital productivity requires increasing asset utilization, efficiency and uptime. Similarly operating costs of energy and maintenance need to be optimized.
Says Venkatesh Valluri, Chairman & President, Ingersoll Rand India: “Ingersoll Rand has been at the forefront of driving ‘Innovation and Technology Convergence’ and to us this means bringing together organizations and technologies on a common platform and converging them to drive profitable sustainability practices. This partnership is a strategic initiative where IBM and Ingersoll Rand are combining their strengths in operations and management systems to bring end-to-end managed services to customers.”
Adds Nipun Mehrotra, Vice President & General Manager, Sales& Business Development, IBM India/South Asia: “Technology today can make it possible to “listen” tothe abundance of information emitted from buildings. IBM is working towards building a Smarter Planet. This partnership with Ingersoll Rand reaffirms our commitment by using intelligent data to build Smarter Buildings that are accountable for energy and carbon resource use, helping create a sustainable environment.”
