In the south of the Iraqi governorate of Albasra, within the new natural gas field that has been developed by Kuwait Energy Iraq Limited (KEIL), we executed a complete engineering study and supervision on installing and operating the low energy systems of the residential and administrational camp, to serve seventy of the working staff in the field. The systems included:
Building Management System (BMS) to control the generation and distribution of electrical power:
Using Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) from the German company SIEMENS, in addition to a SCADA monitoring system from the German company Movicon, in which the system shows the state of the electrical power and the complete consumption of the entire camp and separately for each building or any other important facility, in addition to the ability to witch the power on or off.

The servers and central equipment were connected in the location through a fast and reliable data network with switches from the American company HP, encompassing the connection between all the activities at the location, in addition to connecting all the working systems in the camp.
IP Paging System:
The camp was equipped with IP paging system from the European company ATIES, to allocate vocal announcements throughout the location according to the designated place as needed, with a central control from the monitoring and control room.
Central Telephone Switching System IP PIBX:
The system was installed with equipment from the Japanese company NEC, and that is to provide vocal communication among the different rooms and offices, for which the signal is carried by the data network.
IP Signage System:
Display screens were installed to show security and safety information, were the management of the information displayed is centralized in the control room of the camp.
Entertainment Video on Demand System:
In addition to delivering satellite channels from three different TV satellites for each room in the camp, a service of demanding movies from a large collection of movies from all over the world was also delivered to a camp designed especially for this purpose, using equipment from the German company IRENIS.
Meeting Room Systems:
