Hove commences Hove Smart Lube field test with the Spanish energy company ACCIONA Energía.
The field test takes place at ACCIONA Energía’s El Cabrito Windfarm in Cadiz, Spain.
The collaboration came about at WindEnergy Hamburg in October 2022.
Hove provides the equipment, materials and technical assistance for this initial field test. The test kit includes a Hove One Pump + accessories, a Hove Smart Lube (HSL) scanner, six months access to the HSL software and technical assistance to set ACCIONA Energía up for success with Hove Smart Lube; a field-proven digital plug-and-play solution that gives full traceability and lets the wind technician, and HQ, maintain control of everything linked to lubrication.
“We are delighted to do this test with ACCIONA Energía”, says Thomas Cramer, CCO of Hove. “Spain is a growing market for us, and ACCIONA Energía is an important key-player in the renewables sector in Europe and in Spain particularly. Their willingness to do this test shows their desire to set the standards even higher within operation and maintenance. Hove Smart Lube is a true IoT solution, that connects all elements needed for lubrication and in real time provides the data for operation.”
The test will begin in January 2023 and run for six months.
