• The Maintenance fair will take place from 4-6 June at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC)

At the Maintenance Bilbao trade fair, the Basque technology centre, IKERLAN, will be exhibiting the latest technological advances it has made in partnership with the private sector in the fields of maintenance and Service 4.0. An innovative concept that defines the performance of services based on the application of information and communication technologies (ICT).

This third Maintenance event will take place from 4-6 June at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, in the Biscay town of Barakaldo, where the Arrasate-Mondragon centre will have its own stand.

Maintenance is an area that is gaining importance within the industry because it prolongs the life of equipment, increases the competitiveness of manufacturing processes and reduces production costs. IKERLAN is developing new advanced maintenance solutions in this field, aimed at optimising resources, improving product reliability and increasing business profitability.

As well as showcasing its expertise, the technology centre will also use its presence at the event to learn about the latest trends and developments applied to industrial maintenance, the latest innovations in the area of asset and equipment management and the advances made in the area of production reliability.

"This trade fair not only offers us the opportunity to share our technological skills in the field of industrial maintenance, but also to create synergies with leading companies and agents in the sector, transferring our knowledge to them in new after-sales services that add value to their products and strengthening the exchange of knowledge," explains Jone Uribetxebarria, head of the Operations and Maintenance Technologies team.

With a full programme of conferences, seminars and discussion panels, in which IKERLAN will also actively take part in the form of a presentation, the Maintenance fair is a showcase for the latest trends and a meeting point for the sector's international benchmark organisations.


IKERLAN is a leading centre in technology transfer and in the contribution of competitive value to the company due, among other things, to the specialisation of its researchers. It offers comprehensive solutions that combine different technological fields into three large areas: Electronics, Information, and Communication Technologies (TEIC), Energy and power electronics, and Advanced manufacturing. In 2018, IKERLAN obtained the certification, via AENOR, for the integrated management system (UNE-EN ISO 9001:2015 and UNE 166002:2014),  which recognises the excellence of the centre in the field of R&D&I. It currently employs more than 300 people.

The research organisation will have its own space at the event to present its latest developments in the field of advanced maintenance and services supported by digital technologies
