cobago wins RWE Corporate Challenge

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 Corporate Challenges of the Ruhr Summit are a meeting point for corporations and companies from industry and commerce with fresh solutions and ideas from the startup scene. 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. In dialogue with RWE (power plant operation) and Siemens (power plant construction for the world market), the requirements for inspection, maintenance and integrity management of specific power plants could now also be exchanged. The dialogue is now to be continued on the basis of the cobago product, with the intention of delivering in ready-to-use solutions.
