Interview: WYLD – Expanding in Saudi Arabia

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks

This is an interview in a paid marketing (detta är en intervju i ett betalt samarbete).


Wyld Networks have recently signed up for a partnership with Vracity and Brinja, and in this interview CEO Alastair Williamson will tell us what this is all about and how this potentially can lead to deployment of Wyld equipment at (up to) 3.600 bridges in Saudi Arabia – and also likely deployment in many more countries!


1: Tell us about your partnership with Vracity and Brinja?

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks: Vracity is a technology company that work closely with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Transport. Their solution creates digital twins for buildings and infrastructure by gathering and combining accurate information using technologies such as 3D laser scanners, drones, World leading Ground Penetration Radar Consultancy (GPR) for methodology and output validation sensors, cameras, and other IoT-related devices.

Brinja is an innovative sensor company with data analytics for the construction industry measuring humidity, dust, noise, temperature and movement.

The partnership will focus IoT infrastructure for bridges. Specifically on predictive maintenance, asset-monitoring and reducing human site visits whilst improving the overall monitoring of the ‘health status’ of these bridges.

Vracity’s digital twin will integrate with Brinja’s sensors to measure crack detection, vertical positioning and vibration of each bridge. Brinja’s multiple sensors will be connected to a Wyld Connect terminal and Wyld will send messages via LEO satellites to Wyld Fusion.


2: Which physical sites will you first deploy?

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks: We will be focusing initially on one site. And then rapidly expand into all of the 3600 bridges in Saudi Arabia.


3: What are the benefits for the stakeholders in Saudi Arabia?

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks: There is a big opportunity for Wyld to digitise civil engineering assets in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The aim is to reduce the number of site visits whilst also giving more accurate information (reducing human error).  This will enable preventative maintenance to ensure improved operational efficiency. This will also reduce the carbon footprint of the current processes in place for monitoring bridges within Saudi Arabia.


4: Opportunity and scale of this partnership

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks: For Wyld, this opportunity involves one terminal with Brinja’s multiple sensors per bridge. In total there are 3600 bridges. There is future potential of embedding the Wyld module into the current bridge sensor portfolio in due course. In terms of messages, there will be 4 messages per day per sensor.


5: The future potential across the other sectors in Saudi Arabia

Alastair Williamson (CEO) Wyld Networks: Vracity are keen on working with Wyld in a number of sectors in Australia and the Middle East within Agriculture, Water Management, Environmental Monitoring.


Dagens Börs would like to thank Alastair Williamson, CEO at Wyld Networks for a very interesting interview, and we wish him and the company the best of luck in the future!
