THROUGH THIS PROGRAM

SMART AND CONNECTED PUMPS

with Technosub, an expert in dewatering solutions and pumping equipment.

This solution allows for real-time monitoring while helping prevent failures, optimize equipment management, and facilitate preventive maintenance. It is an ideal solution for mining. The prototype has been deployed and a collaborative pilot project is underway. The companies also presented their project before the MISA Group and the QG100 Network, as well as at the CIM convention. They are working hard on the project and have progress meetings every other week.
