Airport II Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) is the second largest airport in Italy behind Fiumicino. In 2010, MXP experienced 18.7 mio. passengers through 2 terminals. Some relevant figures: 140 GWh annual electricity consumption. A tri-generation plant delivers 80 MWel, 90 MWth heating, and 36 MWth chilled water through a large absorption chiller complex. Large air handling units supply the Terminal 1 with fresh air and ensure a good thermal comfort. Energy Action Plan

Protect capital by warning of potentially damaging states and operations. CASCADE integrated solution CASCADE integrated solution: The CASCADE solution delivers, via a web interface, an ISO 50001 energy action management platform supported by sub-hourly performance data visualization and automated Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) of building systems. Data are gathered at the airport from existing systems or advanced dataloggers, then concentrated in the CASCADE local server and finally transferred to the Datastorage tool. FDD is performed by both the Datastorage tool and the Sensus MI tool. The Enerit tool receives FDD signals and transforms them in content rich information by interrogating the airport ontology. The final web interface enables effective energy action management for all stakeholders involved in the energy O&M process. Integrated Solution
