About Us - SPN

Story

Since its inception in 1982, SPN has maintained a team of highly skilled engineers and has continuously evolved and innovated in asset performance optimization.

From a practice focused on project engineering, SPN quickly became a data-driven company with the creation of the n-Spektor high-resolution data acquisition system in the early 1990s.
After pioneering data collection across hardware and control signals, SPN launched an automated analysis platform as part of its e-audit services, backed by a new infrastructure allowing for continuous data collection.

Today, SPN remains at the forefront of asset optimization through the integration of artificial intelligence in its analysis capabilities while also improving its delivery methods with MySPN, the mobile application which sends asset performance notifications and alarms directly to smartphones.

It is in SPN’s DNA to help clients manage and optimize the performance of assets and we will continue to do so to remain a leader in our industry.
