who we are

WHY WE DO IT

A changing world is a challenge to business.

A testing economic outlook, shifting regulation and the rise of the renewables industry mean today needs a new approach. Distribution systems need to adapt, and innovative Asset Management solutions are making sure infrastructure can remain optimal and efficient.

Proactive and sustainable Asset Management practices are the key to long-term viability. They can reduce the probability of future repairs and ensure your existing network is used optimally.

We at APLINES are convinced that the details are in the data. We analyze your data to provide a clear analysis of asset risks, critical maintenance planning and strategic infrastructure investments. We help you visualize impact on grid performance and costs, and to maximize the value of your assets.

We build a clear picture for your business. 

We analyze your asset data and present insights in an intuitive way so you can make the right decisions to manage asset and vegetation risks, either on a small or large scale.

WHAT WE BUILD

HOW IT ALL STARTED

In response to growing demands from distribution system operators for innovative Asset Management solutions, APLINES was founded in October 2019 through an incubator project by Schneider Electric. After listening to and discussing the needs of modern infrastructure with more than a hundred operators worldwide, APLINES has created new standards in delivering customizable Asset Management solutions across the world. 

As a venture of Schneider Electric, we benefit from the depth of technical expertise in electrical networks of our parent company and leverage its global footprint for unparalleled reach to our customers.
