Unique offshore wind ‘living lab’ in Grimsby is switched on to launch new digital future

Today marks an exciting moment as the 5G PORTAL in Grimsby springs to life. The 5G ‘living lab’ not only symbolises the digital strides in offshore wind but also accentuates the sustainable future we’re driving towards, with the integration of high-speed communications. With fifteen 5G radio transmitters strategically positioned across five sites, including four wind turbines, we’re merging green energy with next-gen technology.

Spanning the port of Grimsby and the Lynn and Inner Dowsing wind farm, the 5G PORTAL is set to usher in cutting-edge solutions, reinforcing the UK’s stature as a forerunner in the global offshore wind sector.

Accelleran and Partners Spearhead Innovation in Autonomous Transport Systems at BMW Group Factory

As part of a three-year research project between 2019 and 2022, m3connect explored the application possibilities of an intelligent factory in the logistics domain in collaboration with three Bavarian partner companies and supported by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development, and Energy. Under the project name “Autonomous and Connected Logistics,” autonomous transport systems and mobile devices were tested under real conditions in a 5G campus network at the BMW Group Dingolfing plant.

m3connect conducted this subproject in collaboration with partners Accelleran, a manufacturer of RAN software, and Benetel, a provider of RAN hardware.
