PWI Ken Erickson Innovation Award 2023

We are thrilled to announce that ARIIS, our Automated Rail Infrastructure Inspection System, has been honoured with the prestigious Ken Erickson Innovation Award!

Future Maintenance Technologies is deeply honoured to have received this accolade from the Permanent Way Institution - New South Wales (PWI-NSW) during the Awards Night in February 2024. The event was a testament to the support of our local Australian SMEs, with numerous leaders from the Transport & Railway sector in attendance.

ARIIS, developed and deployed in collaboration with Keolis MHI in Dubai, represents a significant milestone in rail infrastructure innovation. Over the past 10 months, our dedicated teams have poured their expertise and passion into designing, building, and supporting this advanced system.

We extend a special thank you to Aaron Wood and the team at Keolis MHI for their unwavering support and trust in FMT and the ARIIS vision. Together, we've showcased that the pursuit of true innovation is alive and well. We look forward to continued collaboration on future groundbreaking projects!

This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the dedication of our incredible ARIIS team and the support of our partners and advisors. Congratulations to Loic Ayoul, Owen Plagens, David Philpot, Ben McKelvey, and the entire team for their outstanding contributions.

We also express gratitude to individuals such as Jason Harrison, Scott Egan, Michael Miller, Gary Hambling, Andrew Mudford, and many others who have provided guidance and support along the way.

ARIIS winning the Ken Erickson Innovation Award is a testament to the power of collaboration, innovation, and relentless dedication to advancing rail infrastructure technology. We are excited about the future possibilities as we continue to push the boundaries of innovation in the industry.
