Fine Energy had a fleet of wind turbines which were going to become obsolete unless a way could by found to monitor them, control them and run diagnostic tests on them remotely. This made us realise that there are lots of assets in other sectors such as water which will also need to be replaced at considerable expense if they cannot be put online.
So we came up with a retro-fit approach – introducing a small robust, versatile internet-connected computer into the control cabinet of each asset. Osmium doesn’t take over the installation, it sits alongside existing equipment, enhancing its capabilities and extending its life. We make this happen at a fraction of the cost of swapping-in an internet-enabled replacement control system.
