Digital Twin Software Company Sensat Raises $20.5m USD to Automate the Way Infrastructure is Planned, Built and Managed

Technology provider powering major infrastructure projects raises $20.5m (£16.7m) in Series B funding round - led by National Grid Partners. Funds to accelerate international expansion and product development underpinning Infrastructure automation.

LONDON - October 20, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Sensat has raised $20.5m (£16.7m) in Series B funding in a round led by National Grid Partners, with the participation of existing investors. Sensat is a leading digital twin company with a mission to digitize the underserved construction industry and bring efficiencies to the development and operation of large infrastructure projects. 

The funds will help Sensat to drive digital automation in infrastructure projects in the energy, rail and telecommunications sectors, which have traditionally lacked the productivity gains that have been a by-product of the rapid digital adoption that has occurred in other sectors. 

Sensat helps infrastructure owners and their construction partners deliver on time and on budget by facilitating team collaboration, uncovering hidden risks, eliminating site visits and acting as a window into the entire project. Teams can visualize and collaborate on high-resolution, multi-layered digital twins, resulting in faster project completion, fewer missteps, lower costs and superior project performance. 

Today, more than $150bn worth of assets worldwide are planned, built and managed with Sensat software. 

The investment from National Grid Partners, the corporate venture capital and innovation arm of National Grid, augurs a prominent role for digital twin technology in the smarter management of utility infrastructure projects. National Grid's footprint in the U.S. market will help Sensat to understand the specific needs of the U.S. customer and better tailor the platform to address the market. 

Sensat CEO James Dean said: "We are delighted to welcome National Grid Partners as a shareholder and look forward to serving utility customers in the U.K., U.S. and beyond, bringing a new era in digital automation for the utility and wider infrastructure sectors."

Ian Cooper, Head of European Venture Capital at National Grid Partners, added: "Many of the world's largest infrastructure projects already use Sensat to digitize the planning, development and management of their infrastructure projects and enhance team collaboration - eliminating the largely manual processes and data silos that characterize traditional project management. We hope to see Sensat become the leading digital twin solution for infrastructure projects in the utility industry and beyond."

Author Joe Ginter’s New Book ‘Ditchmen 3: The Rise of Dirt Cake’ is the Thrilling Continuation of the Author’s Captivating Series Following Mr. G

Recent release "Ditchmen 3: The Rise of Dirt Cake" from Covenant Books author Joe Ginter follows teacher Jay Griner, also known as Mr. G., and his not-so-late wife as they use a new and improved Ditchman to withstand the retaliatory efforts of defense contractor Stan Bando, along with his version of a Ditchman called Dirt Cake, and work together to save their hometown for the third time.

SAINT MARYS, Ohio - November 23, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Joe Ginter, author of "Ditchmen 1" and "Ditchmen 2," has completed his new book, "Ditchmen 3: The Rise of Dirt Cake": a fascinating novel filled with suspense that follows Mr. G on his latest heroic adventure written as an enthralling screenplay. 

Author Joe Ginter describes the opening shots, writing, "This beautiful, sunny late October Saturday morning of the various landmarks from the first two screenplays of the St. Marys, Ohio, area. This includes windmills with a nearby farmer in his combine harvester, Griner's Farm, the rural cemetery, and the country road adjacent to Griner's Farm and the cemetery. The country road has been completely resurfaced and the bunker underneath filled in. Other shots include Ted's rural home, the present-day cemetery in town, Amy's new lab completely funded by the government catty-corner from the cemetery, the school, and the restored theater downtown and also not previously mentioned locations and items like the town's historic canal boat and museum, 'Reelect Ted Horn for Mayor' signs, banners promoting Halloween Week, and a sign promoting the annual Ghost Ball and, finally, a new wellness-and-fitness center decorated with grand opening banners and posters promoting its open house event." 

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Joe Ginter's new book tells a compelling story using clean humor and an engaging plot. The author used his students, future graduates of 2029, to prepare "Ditchmen 3: The Rise of Dirt Cake" for publication. Ditchmen were imaginary creatures that he sketched when he was four years old as his family would drive down country roads.

Readers can purchase "Ditchmen 3: The Rise of Dirt Cake" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
