Aurtra is an Australian company, based in sunny Brisbane, Australia. Aurtra was incorporated in 2016 and has built its IP upon a foundation of world’s best practice technology from The University of Queensland, following a decade of transformer research between academia and industry.
Aurtra’s three founders, all with success commercializing hardware and software technology, recognized the potential of the technology and its beneficial impact for asset management in the power distribution industry.
After further research, product design and development of the Aurtra solution, trial units were installed on The University of Queensland campus. Further systems were then trialled at problematic sites of Aurtra’s first power distribution partner in June 2017. These successful trials led to full commercial release of the Aurtra Solution in Q4 2017.
While Australian power distribution Utilities were the first to embrace the technology, Aurtra now has customers and channel partners in Europe, Asia and North America.
