NEM SOLUTIONS: EARTO Innovation Award 2017
The award was given by EARTO Organización, the highest European representation in the field of innovation.
TECNALIA has received the EARTO Innovation Award for the development of a fault prediction technology applied to the Industry 4.0, which is patented by NEM Solutions. The European Innovation Prize was jointly awarded to TECNALIA and NEM Solutions within the category of “Impact Delivered”, which recognizes the best technology transfer practice. The award went public last night in Brussels, during the prize-giving ceremony. It is important to highlight that the underground of Brussels is one of the users of this technology.
Fault prediction in the Industry 4.0 can be done thanks to applying Big Data, which allows the efficient management and the intelligent analysis of large volumes of data in the industry in order to maximize the productivity and the competitiveness at a global level. As such, this technology, named A.U.R.A., helps predict the expected behavior and detect future faults of the key assets of a business, as it could be wind turbines or the subsystem of a train.
This industry, which has been industrialized and patented by NEM Solutions in cooperation with TECNALIA in the research phase and technology development, is currently applied in the wind energy sector and in the rail sector at a global level.
