Mevea is one of the leading real-time simulation and Digital Twin technology providers since 2005

Our story

  • 2005 - Mevea was born!

    Mevea (Mechatronic and Virtual Engineering Applications) was founded in 2005 by a team of 7 researchers working in the field of mechatronics and real-time simulation from Lappeenranta University of Technology.

  • 2007 - First global customer

    After two years of developing the real-time simulation software, Mevea started long-lasting cooperation with Sandvik, the first global customer. The initial project included Sandvik’s loader and drill rig simulation models.

  • 2008 - Building towards international markets

    In 2008 the company was already growing internationally thanks to the first large cabin simulator being delivered to Kalmar for training purposes in Brazil. At the time, all assembly work was performed in-house.

  • 2011 - Awarded for innovative products

    The national Innofinland Prize of the President of the Republic was awarded to Mevea on November 29, 2011:

    “New generation’s product development simulator. The solution reduces the need for prototypes as the products are developed to a greater degree of completion in a virtual environment.”

  • 2012 - Real-time hydraulics simulation

    Simulators for mining machinery are an important part of Mevea’s business. In 2012 Mevea delivered simulators of concrete praying and scaling machines to Normet. These simulators included real-time hydraulic simulation and configurable control system integration which are some of the unique capabilities of Mevea simulators.

  • 2015 - The First Digital Twin was launched

    In 2015 Mevea delivered the very first full-fledged Digital Twin to Mantsinen Group. This is a very advanced simulator of Mantsinen material handler including the real-time simulation of sophisticated hydraulic system and integration with Mantsinen machine control hardware and software.

  • 2018 - Partnering with Siemens

    Siemens and Mevea representatives

    Mevea partners with Siemens. Mevea was selected based on both the accuracy of its real-time simulation software and the ability to seamlessly integrate with Siemens SIMOCRANE technology platform, producing Digital Twins capable of simulating the behavior and use of real cranes.

  • Now

    Mevea helps customers around the world to innovate beyond imagination enabling multiphysics Digital Twins across the product lifecycle in different industries.
