Loraontech seeks to delve into smart agriculture by monitoring processes

The startup from Alava has recently participated in the Bind 4.0 program and in the Basque Open Industry, where it has been able to generate interest in the Basque industrial sector.

Loraontech is a startup created this year in July, and is dedicated to the world of IOT LoRaWan technology. This tool allows for greater efficiency in buildings and dense urban areas, thanks to its radio frequency modulation. The company, located in the Álava Technology Park, uses this type of sensors to measure parameters such as temperature, air humidity, PH, conductivity or air quality, for use in different sectors. Today four partners make up the Loraontech staff.

“We seek to offer connectivity solutions through IoT technologies that allow data to be valued, helping in aspects such as prevention and decision-making,” highlights Asier de Celis Hernández, CEO and founder of Loraontech. In its short history, the startup has already worked in two sectors implementing its solutions. In the smart agriculture sector, it already has pilots underway in several olive groves in Rioja Alavesa, with the aim of monitoring all production.

For its part, the startup has managed to enter the industrial sector thanks to its participation in the Bind 4.0 program and the Basque Open Industry, both of the SPRI Group. “It has been a very positive experience for Loraontech. It is the first fair we have attended and we have come away with contacts for the possible realization of projects. We received great interest in solutions based on Lora since this technology allows us to monitor using sensors without having to pull cables,” explains the CEO of Loraontech. In addition, the company has received help from the Ekintzaile program to support entrepreneurship.

Looking to the future, Loraontech aims to expand its workforce as it adds projects to its activity. “During the next year we hope to consolidate the company and end up establishing the lines of industry and smart agriculture. We have great expectations due to the interest of the different sectors where we have started working,” concludes Asier de Celis Hernández.

The SPRI Group supports innovation, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship with comprehensive support so that ideas successfully reach the market, through entrepreneurship aid programs such as Aurrera, Basque Fondo, Bind 4.0, Ekintzaile or Intraempreneurship.
