Tele2 delivers 5G private network to X Shore’s factory in Nyköping, Sweden
Digitalization across industries is increasing and with this also comes the need for stable connectivity. In Nyköping, Sweden, X Shore is establishing a new facility with the ambition of becoming the world's most sustainable boat factory, with the capacity to produce over 400 electric boats a year. Now Tele2 and X Shore have signed an agreement which entails Tele2 delivering digital infrastructure to the new factory in the form of a private 5G network.
X Shore will use its 5G network to wirelessly connect production equipment to collect data and maintain and control production. The wireless production equipment will also be more flexible, allowing X Shore to move quickly if production increases or changes. Assembly descriptions and quality controls will all be digitalized and continually updated on connected tablets.
- A private mobile 5G network provides completely new opportunities to digitalize, automate, and streamline operations for all types of industries. X Shore is a world leader when it comes to sustainable, electric boats and with a modern 5G network in its new factory, they are now also at the forefront as an example of how a manufacturing company can use technology in a smart and efficient way, says Stefan Trampus, Executive Vice President B2B at Tele2
The digital infrastructure is based on a private 5G network from Tele2. A private 5G network is a locally scaled-down mobile network that uses frequencies which PTS (Public Telecommunications Service) gives X Shore local permission to use on its property. A private frequency enables X Shore to have a secure, predictable, and accessible wireless digital infrastructure independent of loads on public or unlicensed networks. In addition, 5G is a standard that will be supported for many years to come and will contribute to a sustainable solution for X Shore.
- Our goal is to ensure sustainable and efficient production at all levels, from our working environment to environmental impact and financially. We also need a network that is robust, safe, and efficient. With a private 5G network, we also enable increased automation with, for example, connected tools and self-driving vehicles, says Elias Wästberg, Head of X Shore Industries 1.
