For the last 20 years, GreenVulcano has been promoting an all Italian innovation that aims at the development and the implementation of a stable, safe and long-lasting infrastructure. All in an effort to start a brand-new dialogue on the way we conceive infrastructure.
At the beginning of 2020, in light of the success achieved with infrastructure monitoring projects in Italy, France and the Netherlands, we decided to establish an independent company out of our IoT platform. Sensoworks is a startup operating in the field of monitoring and predictive maintenance for civil infrastructure, with a focus on integrating sensors with on-premise or cloud company software.
With the creation of Sensoworks, GreenVulcano is looking to promote not only it’s innovative agenda but to also shine a light on the Italian engineering excellence that for such a long time has been kept in the dark. They plan on doing this by giving a voice to its software integration experts by creating solutions that will improve the usage and construction of buildings, tunnels and civil infrastructure of all kinds.
But what does it mean to “monitor infrastructures”?
A solid control web allows the infrastructure managers to acquire the necessary data to evaluate potential decay or abnormal circumstances.
The installed sensors become a point of reference for those responsible for the maintenance, health and safety and a fundamental support to the maintenance plan. They allow for more constant and less extreme interventions, increasing the infrastructure’s safety and general performance, as well as dramatically decreasing the maintenance costs.
To us, to innovate means to adopt an holistic approach, a win-win strategic plan for both the market and its users. It means to improve the way we conceive our daily reality, to solve its issues and strengthen its qualities.

VITO DISTANTE – BIOGRAPHY
Graduate in Environmental Civil Engineering, since the beginning of his career he’s dealt with geophysical inspections for the geotechnical and geological characterization of terrains and rocks that make up the underground and with geotechnical/structural monitoring through the design, implementation and management of complex systems for the acquisition of static and dynamic measurements on different kinds of civil and industrial infrastructures.
