The SELF Santa Maria de Lamas pilot (Portugal)  has two swimming pools and two gyms. The pilot has three systems for the generation of hot water: solar system, CHP, boilers.

In SELF pilot, the swimming pool area where the sensor network optimization has been implemented into, has an external wall that is completely glazed with shading while the opposite side includes bleachers. The air heating and ventilation system is composed by two Air Handling Units providing the air supply and return through a distribution system. The module optimises supplied thermal energy and fan electrical consumption to achieve the optimal indoor thermal conditions minimising the energy used for the air treatment.

Facilities covered:
  • Olympic Pool (indoor) size: 50m x 25m, depth: 1,20 to 1,80, Capacity: 1650m3
  • Learning Pool (indoor) size: 20m x 6m, depth: 1,1m, Capacity: 132 m3
  • 2 Gyms (indoor) with one provided of electric equipment, such as electric bicycles
