About Us


Finding a solution to real world challenges


Osmium grew out of a partnership between wind energy specialist, Fine Energy and Aberg Design, specialists in edge computing. At Fine Energy, as both owners and service operators of wind turbines, we were acutely aware that the lack of internet capabilities in our otherwise efficient equipment was significantly hampering our ability to identify and respond to faults and effectively plan maintenance.  As a result, costly site visits were frequent and unnecessary downtime was costing us production revenue. 

Failing to find an industry solution that met our needs, we set about developing our own solution with Aberg Design.  The result is Osmium, a competitively-priced remote monitoring and control service, that has been designed with user insight and benefits from the latest in technological advances - at a fraction of the cost of internet-enabled replacement equipment. 

Initially deployed solely in the wind energy industry, Osmium is now being used in other sectors including food processing and hydraulic systems.  A key strength is its ability to be integrated with a range of existing devices, making it the ideal ‘out of the box’ remote monitoring and control solution, whatever the industry.
