River Rock Casino Resort

The River Rock Casino Resort complex was completed in August of 2005 and runs entirely on the BACnet® protocol. All MACH-Global™ controllers communicate over IP via a LAN belonging to the parent company, Great Canadian Casinos. BACnet IP is employed to communicate with a Trane BCU for chiller control.
The Reliable Control® MACH-System system coordinates cooling for a large chiller plant that consists of four chillers and a single heat harvester. There are 20 large, built-up AHUs dedicated to serve the casino and convention centre. The hotel suites are heated and cooled by 250 fan coils with independent control and adjustable guest set-point using SMART-Sensor™ technology. Office and tenant space within the hotel is served by fan coils and VAV boxes.
