Oslo, Norway: Disruptive Technologies, the creator of the world’s smallest wireless sensors, has won the opportunity to partner with Westinghouse Nuclear. As the winner of the “Dragons’ Den HUB2020 Beyond Sustainability” award, Disruptive Technologies will install their innovative sensors in a nuclear power plant to monitor vital components. The invitation-only challenge includes up to $25,000 in funding.
Westinghouse Nuclear presented a challenge to a select group of SynerLeap (an innovation growth hub powered by ABB) start-ups: developing a solution to monitor operations closely and lower costs. Regulations prevent heavy sensors on nuclear power plant components. Disruptive Technologies tiny, almost contactless sensors weigh only 2 grams, making them an ideal solution. The best-in-class solution won because of its size, simplicity, ease of use, and the ability to capture raw data in harsh environments, at scale.
Other features of the award-winning sensors:
“This new partnership shows that IoT technology is changing the very nature of the energy production industry,” said Bengt Johannes Lundberg, CEO of Disruptive Technologies. “Our robust sensors can meet the high standards of these operations with simplicity and exceptional security.”
“We are fortunate to have Disruptive Technologies as a member at SynerLeap powered by ABB – contributing with their entrepreneurial spirit and innovative mindset to our ecosystem of industrial partners, customers, and collaborators .
Their innovation – unique tiny wireless sensors - and forward leaning team have already an excellent track record verified by several collaborations together with ABB,” said Martin Olausson, Head of Business Development, Synerleap. “We are very pleased that Disruptive Technologies now also will collaborate with our industrial partner Westinghouse Electric."
