Aurtra is transforming power asset management through online monitoring and analytics. Aurtra will enable power companies to monitor assets in real time to optimise usage, minimise network down time and extend transformer lifetime.
Aurtra’s solutions are low cost, light touch, secure and interoperate with existing tools to extend asset life through improved risk management and optimisation of transformer loading, maintenance and replacement. The Aurtra Insight Dashboard provides a fleet-wide view of individual transformer insulation risk, with configurable real time alerts of unexpected status changes, and graphical short and long term trends. Aurtra’s solutions will be targeting the power systems monitoring market which is conservatively estimated to be worth well over $1 billion annually.
The intellectual property being commercialised by Aurtra was originally developed over 10 years at the University of Queensland. The founding Aurtra team have decades of start-up, commercial and power transformer industry expertise and are headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland.
In 2022 Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation completed the acquisition of Aurtra, this investment strengthens Schneider Electric’s position as the reference digital provider of services across the full electrical distribution value chain.
