Past week we’ve successfully delivered our first project with Rijkswaterstaat and Antea Group Nederland! During “Project Sigma”, Villari technology was applied to monitor cracks on a large steel highway bridge in the Netherlands. We’re thrilled with the final results, which have far exceeded expectations.
This summer we’ve been working hard to validate Villari technology in operational context. We’re very excited with the results, and we’re very proud of our excellent collaboration with Rijkswaterstaat and Antea Group. With their continuous support we’re developing the next generation of crack monitoring sensors, which will further enable us to maximize the continued, uninterrupted and safe operation of our client’s assets.
Villari is looking for interns! To help us accelerate our business, Villari is looking for two interns in both commercial and technical roles. Are you excited to help a young team in building the next leading company in the field of structural health monitoring? Click on the pdf below for more detailed information, and how to apply.
As of today, our new website is live! We’ve added more information on our services, our underlying technology, and we’ve expanded our page describing Villari itself including our vision, mission and core values. Also, we’re looking for interns! Are you or do you know someone looking for a technical or commercial internship with us? Please refer them to our brand new career page!
We’re very proud to announce that the NetherlandsEnterprise Agency (RVO) has decided to award us with EUR 350K for development of our technology! Thanks to swift adoption of remote working methods during COVID-19-related restrictions (including last-minute video pitches from our side), the advisory committee has unanimously agreed to grant Villari these funds. We will use these funds to accelerate development of our next generation of wireless crack monitoring sensors, so that our clients can benefit from our innovative technology even sooner. Also, we’ll be expanding our team. Many thanks to the RVO for putting their trust in us!
Together with our partners, Villari is working hard on tackling a known problem in steel structures: monitoring tiny cracks at challenging locations. Currently our next sensor model is under development, and we hope to share some more with you soon!
As of this year, Rijkswaterstaat started its largest maintenance project to date: 20 billion euros will be spent from 2020 to 2033 on renovation of bridges and tunnels in the Netherlands. We think that by investing in smart monitoring technology, Rijkswaterstaat can safely extend the lifetime of their assets by multiple years. Let’s see what the near future brings…
