TELNET Redes Inteligentes S.A and  Santa María La Real foundation, agreed about two years ago to unite their technologies for monitoring multiple parameters in real time, to work in common, in their implementation in buildings of our rich artistic historical heritage, with the purpose to achieve its optimal energy efficiency, its better conservation and preventive maintenance, as well as the optimization of its management, through the information obtained, thanks to the real-time monitoring of important parameters such as: energy consumption, temperatures, humidity, CO2, number of visitors, etc … etc …, and without disturbing users.

This monitoring is obtained by analizing the data coming from the sensory networks and measurement equipment, installed in said buildings, facilitating the decision making based on real and monitored data.

En tal sentido, esta colaboración mutua, se materializó a finales de 2016 en el Proyecto MHS-EnerCon, con ayuda financiera del Ministerio de Industria, Economía y Competitividad.

This mutual collaboration was materialized at the end of 2016 in the MHS-EnerCon Project, with financial support from the Ministry of Industry, Economy and Competitiveness.

The objective of this project is to implement these technologies in three very important artistic historic buildings:

  • The Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, in Madrid, wonderful historical building, pride of the Spanish artistic culture for more than 265 years
  • The Palace of the Provincial Council of Palencia, impressive modernist building, inaugurated in 1914
  • The Cathedral of San Antolín de Palencia,  declared a National Monument in 1929.

Last October 23 we made the presentation of the first results already obtained, in each one of these buildings, which each have a network composed by more than 60 sensors and measuring devices, placed in different areas of the buildings, offering data on: energy consumption, temperature, humidity, air conditioning, heating, general lighting, artistic, exterior, gas consumption, CO2 concentration, number of visitors and so on.

The presentation took place in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, with the participation, among many others, of the Director of the Academy, Mr. Fernando de Terán, the President of the Diputación de Palencia, Ms. Angeles Armisén, the General Director of the Foundation, Mr. Juan Carlos Prieto, the Director of the Museum of the Academy, Mr. José María Luzón, and the Founder and President of TELNET Redes Inteligentes SA, Mr. Manuel Villarig.

All this parameters are monitored permanently and in real time, thanks to the EMIOS monitoring system of TELNET Redes Inteligentes, developed by its subsidiary  Energy Minus and the MHS system of the Santa María la Real Foundation.

Many more projects will follow this three projects, contemplated in the Global Project MHS-EnerCon, This is the common objective of the Foundation and TELNET Redes Inteligentes. In fact, at this moment, we already have another interesting Project in progress, such as the one from the old Roman village of La Olmeda in the province of Palencia, one of the greatest discoveries of modern archeology, and other projects in the study phase, that we will announce at the time.

With these actions, we are very proud that our technologies contribute so positively to the conservation and preventive maintenance of historic artistic buildings of our immense Heritage, whose legacy, we all wish that future generations can enjoy it.
