Siemens improves energy efficiency of largest museum in Southern Hemisphere

Siemens has been awarded the contract to comprehensively upgrade the lighting, water and cooling systems of Museum Victoria, Australia. The Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) agreement has a value of 4.2 million euros. The investments will be paid back over seven years through the energy savings achieved.

Museum Victoria is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere, consisting of three large individual museums, including the Melbourne Museum, the Immigration Museum, a heritage listed exhibition space, and Royal Exhibition Building, as well as two storage facilities.

The State Government of Victoria is aiming to make the operation of all its museums, more efficient and environmentally friendly. This includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions and potable water use.

The Siemens Building Technologies Division was awarded the contract to implement these efficiency goals. This will include installing the Desigo CC building management system which has the future capability to integrate with the existing lighting, fire and security system at the Museum.

All museums will see upgrades that reduce water use and make lighting more energy efficient via implementation of a new lighting design featuring the latest LED technology.
