TWTG will provide its NEON Vibration Sensors at Shell’s Pernis Refinery in the Netherlands.
Rotterdam, 31st August 2021. TWTG is excited to announce that they have won a tender by Shell Nederland. The I-IoT hardware company based in Rotterdam has now delivered the first 100 NEON Vibration Sensors to Shell’s Pernis Refinery. TWTG, a Dutch scale-up, is proud to have achieved this milestone, especially in the highly competitive landscape of LoRaWAN-based Vibration Sensors.
“We are delighted that Shell has placed their trust in TWTG for the delivery of our products and we will work tirelessly to demonstrate that we should be the supplier of choice for any other LoRaWAN devices to come, “ said Nadine Herrwerth, Managing Director of TWTG.
The project will demonstrate the benefits that condition-based asset monitoring can bring to industrial sites, by detecting bearing-faults on pumps or other rotating equipment early and being able to act upon detailed information, before any issues can arise, hence reducing downtime and eliminating potentially hazardous situations.
Felix Fikke, Instrumentation Project Engineer at Shell Pernis is excited about having NEON Vibration Sensor on site: “These devices will change the way that we monitor our pumps and allow us to react faster. We can measure root-mean-square (RMS) velocity as well as fast fourier transform (FFT), and all this is possible with a LoRaWAN sensor, which is fantastic!”
In many industrial sites there are a variety of assets being used regularly, without clear and timely information about their health status. The future of asset performance management is changing. It is becoming ever more digitised, with data collected from Industrial IoT sensors providing insight and knowledge.
The TWTG NEON product range supports all industrial customers moving towards LoRaWAN as the Industrial IoT network of the future. More information on the NEON Vibration Sensor can be found here.
