About Gov-PACT NEA-ESG Joint Innovation Call on Cleaning, Waste Management and Monitoring of Environmental Process Parameters
The National Environment Agency (NEA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG) have jointly launched an Innovation Call under the Government – Partnership Capability Transformation (Gov-PACT) initiative, to encourage greater use of technology and automation to raise productivity for cleaning, waste management and monitoring of environmental process parameters. The innovation call also seeks to address operational challenges in the industry, as well as to build up the capability and skillsets of workers.
Innovation Call: [E] To Develop a Low Cost Non-intrusive Solutions to Measure Steam Flow and Compressed Air Pressure
The Measurement and verification (M&V) process is critical in the evaluation of any energy efficiency project in industrial facilities. However, the M&V process can be challenging for the existing stock of industrial manufacturing companies which do not have the necessary monitoring and metering devices installed in their facilities.
Currently, companies will need to stop their production operations to install steam flow meters. To measure the pressure of compressed air systems, companies may need to do “hottapping”. However, companies do not permit “hot-tapping” as there are concerns that it will affect the quality of the compressed air that is supplied to their process machines.
In the absences of actual monitoring and metering, the actual energy performance improvement cannot be ascertained. Hence, proposed solutions are required to help companies measure the aforementioned process parameters in a low cost non-intrusive way and with reasonable uncertainty level.
Proposers are to come out with two different solutions to each measure the steam flow and air pressure.
The proposed solutions for measuring steam flow and air pressure should meet the following general requirements.
* Proposers should come out with two solutions: (i) designed for general purpose areas, and (ii) designed for weatherproof, flameproof and explosion-proof areas.
*Please refer to link for full details on Requirements.
The call is targeted at Singapore registered SMEs / start-ups. Foreign companies are invited to submit proposals. However, to qualify for Government's funding, foreign technology providers should work with Singapore registered SMEs / start-ups.
