General earthing system: earthing installation

The general earthing system connects the different parts of an electrical installation with the surface conductor of the Earth to guarantee security and functionality.

In an electrical installation, the soil itself provides equipotentialization for all of the metallic parts so that there are no differences in potential between each other. This is carried out in order to guarantee the safety of people and equipment from any possible defects in the actual facilities.


Oil & Gas sector: earthing and lightning protection systems

The petrochemical and hydrocarbon handling industry is of enormous importance to the global economy and is also a hazardous industry capable of causing serious environmental damage. Its electrical installations are exposed to the risks of fault and static electricity, and are vulnerable to hazards from lightning strikes. Grounding systems are key to reducing these safety threats to sensitive people and equipment. Artificial intelligence and IoT technology applied to grounding and lightning protection systems bring unique value to the safety and operational-financial efficiency of assets.


Self-developed tool for earthing systems 4.0, lightning and surge protection projects

Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. has developed a software with advanced functionalities for the design and analysis of earthing systems 4.0 and lightning protection systems. This software is the one we use within our expert services for erthing systems 4.0 and lightning and surge protection projects. One of its most innovative aspects is the analysis of the combined interaction of grounding and surge protection in a building.


Wind energy: earthing system most common problems

The wind industry is one of the most cost-competitive renewable energies globally. In an increasingly interconnected world, the sector must continue to innovate, for example through digital transformation. Smart technologies collaborate in solving the problems that, due to their characteristics and locations, wind farms face with respect to grounding systems. For this reason, Aplicaciones Tecnológicas S.A. offers professional services for geoelectric studies and grounding 4.0 projects. Furthermore, Smart Earthing Monitoring System allows centralised and unattended monitoring of the wind turbine earthing systems and the wind farm substation.
