    The expanding demand for sensors

    Demand for smart sensor technology is rapidly expanding. From navigation systems in smartphones to driver-assistance systems, sensors are playing an increasingly crucial role in winning the technology race.

  • Exhaust gas treatment
    How to comply with new regulation for exhaust gas

    Increased focus on the environmental impact from the Marine industry drives new exhaust gas emission restrictions and regulation. The new regulation forces vessel owners and shipbuilders to implement new technical solutions to ensure compliance with local, regional and global legislation.

  • A world of water under pressure
    A world of water under pressure

    Water puts pressure on people everywhere – whether they are struggling with too much, too little, or too dirty water. In fact, a water crisis is evaluated as one of the highest risks to the world and with the largest impact, according to the World Economic Forum. In this article, we outline the causes of this global water crisis – and offer a lifebuoy that can help us overcome it.

    Big mobile hydraulic solutions have never been so small

    Without heavy machines, our world would grind to a halt. However, modern machinery relies on the complex and sophisticated systems to stay in operation and perform to capacity, and the smallest component can make a critical difference.

  • Decoupling water from growing energy consumption
    Decoupling water from growing energy consumption

    It takes water to produce energy – as it takes energy to produce water. The mutual dependence of water and energy and the accelerating demand for both have a major global impact on economic growth and societies everywhere. To create a more sustainable future, we need to decouple the water industry from growing energy consumption.

  • Global study: Pressure management reduces water and energy loss
    Global study: Pressure management reduces water and energy loss

    Throughout the entire water cycle, pressure plays a key role in ensuring an efficient, reliable, and sustainable water supply. And for decades, the water industry has struggled with numerous pressure-related challenges in the water system. By using intelligent pressure and flow management, a global study proves how water facilities can reduce unnecessary water and energy loss.

    Here’s how you CAN simplify and save on mobile hydraulic equipment

    CAN communication is best understood in the following way: instead of sending a message from component A to unit B, the message is broadcast. Each component is then able to listen for, collect, and act on information that is relevant for that particular component.
