The National Library of Sweden chooses Beijer Electronics’ Building Automation Solution


Beijer Electronics has received a strategic order from the National Property Board of Sweden. The Authority, in charge of managing state property, has chosen an automation solution from Beijer Electronics through the building automation integrator Nordomatic to ensure the building management of the National Library of Sweden in Stockholm.

The National Library is responsible for collecting and preserving all Swedish publications and audiovisual material, and for making this part of the cultural heritage available to the public. The new automation solution will manage the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), humidity control, lightning, energy measurement and elevator monitoring of the historic building.

Major growth opportunities
“Building automation is a segment we’re prioritizing, and this order is a strategic milestone”, commented Magnus Buhre, Beijer Electronics’ Manager of Building Automation. “The targeted effort has, in addition to the delivery to the National Library, also resulted in prestigious orders for Sweden's new national stadium Friends Arena, the Vasa Museum and the National Museum.”

Beijer Electronics will deliver both hardware and software for the National Library. The solution includes approx. 1,800 I/O’s, the recently introduced iX HMI solution and PLC systems. These products complement the previously delivered SCADA system. Beijer Electronics was chosen as supplier based on the ability to meet high quality standards combined with the capability to deliver ready-made software applications for HVAC.

The company has, in collaboration with building automation integrators, delivered solutions to Scania, Tetra Pak, Alfa Laval and Astra Zeneca.
