Meeting real-world challenges
Osmium grew out of a partnership between wind energy specialist Fine Energy and Aberg Design, specialists in edge computing. At Fine Energy, as owners and operators of wind turbines, our ability to respond to faults and to plan maintenance was hampered by having access only to top-level diagnostic information, and not to the detailed diagnostics available on site over an HMI. As a result, costly site visits were frequent and unnecessary downtime was costing us production revenue.
Failing to find an industry solution that met our needs, we set about developing our own solution with Aberg Design. The result is Osmium, a competitively-priced retrofit connectivity solution, designed with user insight and benefits from the latest technological advances in mind. Transformation can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of internet-enabled replacement equipment. Initially deployed in the wind energy industry, Osmium is now being used in other sectors including food processing and hydraulic oil contamination monitoring.
Osmium technology lead Ulf Aberg brings a creative background and experience in game design to the challenges of IoT. Client focussed and with a penchant for detail, Ulf is well placed to deliver technical solutions for your remote real-time monitoring and control projects.
Commercial lead Graham Hygate worked as a research physicist and as a management consultant before setting up the renewable energy business that led to Osmium. He is focussed on identifying customers and partners who can benefit from retrofit connectivity.
Jo Hughes is the marketing lead for Osmium. Jo has held a range of roles across different industries with a strong history of working within the technology sector. She focuses on finding technological solutions to the challenges that face today's businesses.
