Wouter van Reeven.
Convenience as a park manager
As a park manager, Wouter is always looking for ways to make things easier. ICT helps with that. RecraPlan started in the time of the pandemic when a maximum number of visitors was allowed in various facilities. If you don't have to keep track of that, but have an app for it, where guests can make reservations themselves, it saves time. "If you save time on basic tasks, it allows you time to think about a sustainable future."
This sustainable future is also where Wouter further developed with RecraPlan. A boiler that often malfunctions, causing complaints from guests, led to the next step in the development of RecraPlan. "What if you know in advance when the temperature of the boiler drops, can that prevent complaints?" Wouter wondered. The answer turned out to be yes, and the LoRa network with temperature sensors was born. The step towards Legionella management was small.
The contribution that Wouter made to a project on the energy transition in the municipality where Wouter's park is located leads him to make the step towards energy management. There is little offer in this area for parks, and it often requires high investment costs due to the modification of electrical cabinets or the installation of gas submeters. As a result, there is actually very little known about the exact energy consumption in the parks. Much is based on assumptions, and comparison is even more of an issue in the industry.
