Making Installations and Structures Smart
From sensor data to integrity and efficiency management

Zensor is a VUB spin-off originating from the Electrochemical and Surface Engineering research group (SURF). The company offers ‘Engineers in a box’ for various industrial applications such as offshore wind turbines, roadside service stations, buried pipelines, (petro)chemical plants,…
Zensor’s solutions send out rich alarms when dangerous situations arise, but also automatically generate daily or monthly reports containing an overview of those components or devices requiring preventive maintenance or exhibiting a sub par performance.
For the measurements themselves Zensor relies on specific VUB-knowhow to measure corrosion activity together with an intelligent combination of additional sensor types to be able to determine, from remote, what exactly is going on at the structure.

Zensor has in the mean time grown into a one-stop-shop for multi-aspect monitoring industrial assets. Their goal is to make the life of structures and installations as safe, as long and as efficient as possible.
