cobago, software specialist based in Dortmund's Technology Centre and at the STARTPLATZ in Cologne, was able to assert itself at the Ruhr Summit 2018 among a total of 140 challenge applicants at the beginning and win RWE's Corporate Challenge.

"In view of more than 600 power plants of different types in Germany today and in times of growing energy demand and energy change, the integrity and safety of these power plants is an important issue", explains cobago CEO Dr. Dieter Kramps and adds: "The cobago team is very pleased that with our on-site companion for safety engineers and technicians we can make our small contribution to the digitisation of these critical infrastructures and that RWE and Siemens are now also reflecting our solution".

The cobago SIX "On Site Companion" was developed by cobago GmbH, founded in 2016, together with TÜV Rheinland, and is increasingly being used there in multiple countries.

The dialogue is now to be continued on the basis of the cobago product, with the intention of delivering in ready-to-use solutions.

ECP Summit Chemical Industry Summer 2018

The trend towards consistent and comprehensive digitization in operation and service has reached industrial users and operators of critical infrastructures such as chemical parks, power plants and transport and transmission networks.

At the ECP Summer Summit of the chemical industry in Düsseldorf on 25.9.2018, cobago presented the SIX solution in industrial service applications for the chemical and petrochemical industries to selected participants in practical examples and one-on-one presentations.

The trend towards consistent and comprehensive digitisation in operation and service does not stop at industrial users and operators of critical infrastructures such as chemical parks, power plants and transport and transmission networks. Machinery and equipment should remain at the cutting edge of technology and be operated reliably and safely. Technology and networks for traffic, electricity, gas and water need to be regularly checked, constantly maintained, maintained and, if necessary, renewed.

Operators of industrial infrastructures and network operators as well as their service providers are today parts of digital information networks with unprecedented complexity. Some typical processes are: Integrity and maintenance of power plants, networks and production lines, fire protection, operational safety, hazard prevention, monitoring of road conditions, lighting management, cleanliness and hygiene, network integrity, repair management.
