The general objective of the project is to increase the competitiveness of WING COMPUTER GROUP SRL by designing, implementing, and testing an innovative flexible, scalable and customizable system with 3 constructive variants, to ensure energy support and collection of predictive maintenance data in order to increase the resilience of critical infrastructures.
This objective ensures the development of the company’s RDI capacity and infrastructure by introducing innovative products / services in the manufacturing, by implementing a new production unit, based on the integration of different energy sources and which will ensure the necessary energy for operating critical infrastructures in crisis conditions, will ensure an energy management of the facilities and predictive maintenance regarding the operating conditions.
All products / services resulting from the implementation of the project are dedicated to the field of Critical Infrastructures and Services.
The results of research and development present an innovative technological product designed to increase the resilience of critical infrastructures, in crisis or emergency situations, by providing a multi-source energy support based on hydrogen fuel cells and electric gasoline generators, intelligent support, flexible and customizable depending on the load served, designed to withstand various test scenarios, in terms of service life, at different ambient temperatures and in different hard-to-reach locations.
The project also aims to have a component for monitoring energy consumption, fuel reserve used, operational parameters of the critical infrastructure served: power required, data transmission speed and a predictive maintenance component to estimate the condition of the equipment. monitor and provide information on the degree of wear and the estimated life.
