Tele2 delivers 5G private network to X Shore’s factory in Nyköping, Sweden

Tele2 has signed an agreement with electric boat company X Shore to build a private 5G network in their newly built factory in Nyköping, Sweden. By having its own 5G network, X Shore will become more flexible and efficient in its production of the electric boats of the future. Tele2 5G private network

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.
