Kudan Inc. (headquarters in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; CEO Daiu Ko, hereafter “Kudan”), a leading provider of real-time simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) software, is pleased to announce the initiatives to date in the solutions business that Kudan has been developing in Europe, as well as the outlook for future business expansion plans as follows.

The solutions business is a business in which Kudan collaborates with system development companies, application development companies, hardware manufacturing companies, mapping service companies, and other partners to package and provide Kudan’s artificial perception/SLAM algorithms into solution services that can be used by end customers.

In Europe, Kudan has established a collaborative partnership with STS Engineering and Construction Kft., a renewable energy engineering, procurement, and construction company headquartered in Hungary (Reference: Kudan Announces Strategic Partnership with STS Group to Jointly Expand Digital Asset Platform Solution Business towards European Municipality and Utility Infrastructure Sectors (November 14, 2023)), to provide solutions for digital twins in the mapping area (Digital Asset Management Solution, hereafter “DAMS”), and furthermore, Kudan has been discussing with several customers to start DAMS projects.

In the European market environment, the Council of the European Union and the European Council Meeting have strengthened the political policy of emphasis on renewable energy by raising the 2030 renewable energy ratio target to 42.5%. In response, plans for new large-scale renewable energy power plants, such as mega solar power plants, and capital investment in power grids are expanding across countries in Europe.

With this background, Kudan has been working with energy companies and facilities management companies to develop a plan to implement its DAMS for the DX of major power infrastructure, targeting power grids and substations.

DAMS is a one-stop digital solution that generates a digital twin of facilities, and based on the digital twin, realizes facilities management planning, asset data management, operation and maintenance, and project management. This solution significantly improves the efficiency, reduces costs, and adds value to facilities management operations as follows.


  • 10x ~ 20x faster asset data collection and processing time
  • 30% ~ 50% less search time for asset data and avoid physical facility visit
  • 2x ~ 5x efficiency improvement for asset data utilization
  • 20% ~ 40% productivity increase of facilities management operation


  • Expand the type of assets that can be managed
  • Generate new business through information sharing and interdivisional cooperation
  • Decentralize the maintenance works and activities
  • Enable Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

With the backing from the digitalization strategies of European countries, Kudan and the following companies are currently working together to formulate plans and close contracts for the DX by DAMS implementation by 2026, targeting approximately 2,000 km of power grid, approximately 200 substations, and many other facilities.

  • E.ON SE (One of the world’s leading energy companies headquartered in Germany)
  • MAVIR Ltd. (Hungarian state-owned company and part of the MVM group, Europe’s major energy company)
  • SolServices Ltd. (Part of Polat holding, a major real estate company headquartered in Turkey)
  • Other world leading companies in facilities management, etc.

In addition, the demand for DX for facilities management is growing in the public and manufacturing sectors, and Kudan will work with European governments to expand its business to meet this demand.

  • Public sectors: Public buildings, transportation-related facilities, roads, green spaces/parks, airports/harbors, etc.
  • Manufacturing sectors: Manufacturing facilities, Energy facilities, , Building facilities, etc.
