fos4X has been nominated for this year’s Digital Top 50 award by Google, McKinsey, and Rocket Internet

fos4X has been selected among over 600 digital start-ups by a prestigious jury and has been nominated for the Digital Top 50 Award. This makes us one of the top 50 digital companies in Europe which will be represented during the TechCrunch Disrupt 2019 in Berlin.

With the Digital Top 50 Award, the companies Google, McKinsey, and Rocket Internet honor Europe’s best startups that make their contribution to digitalization and facilitate the continent’s tech scene. The award has been established in 2016, is supported by Mr Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation and is awarded in the four categories “Best Early Stage, Best B2B, Best B2C and Best Social Impact”.

With the fos4X solutions for the digitalization and optimization of wind turbines, we are strongly positioned in the B2B category.

Our strength is the combination of our self-developed fiber optic IIoT-sensors with our analytical software and the orchestration of the necessary Industrial Internet of Things infrastructure. This allows us to offer unique and holistic solutions that generate smart data and relevant decision recommendations to digitize and optimize wind turbines.

We propose that the levers of classical mechanical and plant engineering have been exhausted. The consolidation and relocation of production are suitable for further reducing the costs of plant manufacturers. The superior solutions for the industry, however, are the consistent collection of smart data, open interfaces, and a corresponding software for optimized operation. Our vision is that in ten years every new rotor blade will be equipped with various sensors that enable direct measurement of structural parameters. In addition, existing turbines can be retrofitted, digitized, and thus operated efficiently with our solutions.

With this conviction, our domain knowledge, fantastic measurement technology, and modern data analysis methods, fos4X is a reliable partner on the way to the digital transformation of wind turbine.

We are looking forward to a great event and exciting conversations about the digitalization of wind turbines.
