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.


Predictive maintenance: what it is and how to achieve it with smart technology

Predictive maintenance is a technique that uses data analysis to detect anomalies in the operation of equipment and processes. The maintenance of any installation is vital for its proper functioning and, consequently, to achieve the operational and financial efficiency of a company, as well as to ensure occupational safety. The monitoring of the grounding system with smart technology carried out by Aplicaciones Tecnológicas is based on sensors that collect data and send it via IoT technology so that trained AI algorithms can detect faults before they occur, thus saving costs and minimising risks.


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.

Data centres: intelligent solutions for grounding and lightning protection systems

Data centres: intelligent solutions for earthing and lightning protection systems

Data processing centres (DPCs) represent an ever-growing industry in both importance and scale, but they also face increasing challenges. Downtimes and service interruptions are a concern for data centre owners and managers. Smart technologies in grounding and lightning protection systems are high-impact tools for infrastructure security, data and equipment integrity and service continuity.
