Sensohive, Denmark + Amper, Spain
In Denmark alone, approx. 300,000,000 kWh (3 GWh) of electricity is used to dry and dehumidify concrete in the construction industry. According to “SBi-instruction 258, Instructions on Building Regulations 2015” it is estimated that almost 50% of this energy could be saved if there was a technological solution that could control the softening process more efficiently. Sensohive and the Spanish IoT company Amber, will in this Tech Match partnership further develop the existing Maturix sensor and software system that collects a large number of very accurate data on the hardening of the concrete. Via new control algorithms and a newly developed Smart Control Box, the data is used to turn dehumidifiers on and off and fan heaters so that the above savings are realized.
