STREGA LoRaWAN shut-off valve for 8000+ apartments in Dubai

Dubai owns the most iconic buildings in the world: they want to showcase the best technology and be the “First to have” something "smart".

In Dubai, there was the challenge of needing a high-pressure operation, high density, not being able to lay cables, and no existing LoRaWAN coverage to be able to deliver cold water for HVAC to more than 200,000 apartments.

On average 7,000 manual valve Open/Close were done at the time of the installation.

The Challenge:

Delivery of cold water for HVAC to more than 200,000 apartments in Dubai (8000+ STREGA valves installed).

  • Buildings are not the property of STREGA's customer: no cables can be layed

  • High density of Smart-Valves to install (some buildings have more than 1000+ tenants !)

  • Poor or no existing LoRaWAN Operator coverage

  • 10-15 years autonomy required in order to change the batteries at the same time they change these for the BTU meters

  • High pressure operation (15-20 Bars) requires high energy to operate the valves

Challenge or problem: STREGA's customer required remote and wireless operation of the cold water supply to HVAC-systems. Enabling more effective billing and a reduction in manual operations of cold water valves.
Solution: 8000+ Wireless shut-off valves installed, in a solution matching 10-15 years autonomy.
Result: Valves can now be closed remotely from the Control Center if a customer is not paying the HVAC bill (average of $250/month !)
