who we are

We at APLINES are convinced that data analytics focusing on asset risks and their impact provide a powerful support for critical maintenance planning and investment strategy decisions.

WHY WE DO IT

A changing economic and regulatory environment, coupled with climate change, the rise of renewable energies and electric vehicles generate ever increasing strains on distribution system operators and a growing demand for an innovative Asset Management solution.

Proactive, sustainable Asset Management practices are more important than ever before.

We at APLINES are convinced that data analytics focusing on asset risks and their impact provide a powerful support for critical maintenance planning and investment strategy decisions.

These can ultimately lead to significant savings, giving distribution system operators the financial bandwidth to adapt their network to ever varying demands, guarantee their service levels, minimize the impact on consumer prices and implement sustainable asset management practices.

We are building a decision enabling system for managing environmental and asset risks at any scale of the grid.

Our asset management solution provides a consolidated view of the health and criticality for all assets of an electrical grid, which enables well-informed maintenance and investment decisions at the level of a network, a circuit, a section, or a span.

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 six months of listening and discussing with more than a hundred transmission and distribution system operators worldwide, APLINES has created new standards in delivering customizable Asset Performance Management solutions dedicated to Electric Utilities 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.

Our leadership team is guided by a simple vision:
To be our clients’ most trusted partner and to become a world-leading company in asset management.
