    Since 2015, AIRA LAB has been developing Smart Contracts using Blockchain technology for industry 4.0, smart factories, smart cities, autonomous vehicles, supply chain management, carbon credits trading, liability and insurance applications. The key know-how of AIRA LAB is the algorithm that allows to link together technical and economic transactions between machines, and/or between humans and machines, into one comprehensive transaction. AIRA LAB can record such transactions in 100% secure and immutable way. For the offshore wind industry, it means automatic tracking and encrypted recording of the history of technical failures and maintenance operations. The system keeps this information securely protected from any types of forgery or adulteration for the infinite duration of time. The resulting database is a valuable resource of trustworthy data for inter-corporate proceedings or insurance claims.
