Santa’s best optimized porridge

Dec 22, 2023 | Company news

Santa Claus was busy preparing for his annual delivery of gifts to children all over the world. He had a lot of things to do, such as checking his list, packing his sleigh, and feeding his reindeer. But he also had to make sure that he had enough porridge for himself and his elves. Porridge was their favorite meal, especially on a cold winter night.

Santa had a large pot of porridge cooking on the stove in his kitchen. He used a special recipe that he had learned from his grandmother, who had taught him the secrets of making the perfect porridge. He added some cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey to give it a sweet and spicy flavor. He also used fresh milk from his own cows, which he kept in a barn next to his workshop.

Santa knew that porridge was not only delicious, but also nutritious and energy-efficient. He had learned from Viimatech Digital, a company that specialized in data-driven maintenance and optimization of pumps, that porridge had a low specific energy consumption, meaning that it required less energy to cook than other foods. He also learned that porridge had a high best efficiency point, meaning that it reached its optimal temperature and consistency at a certain point of time and heat.

Viimatech Digital had installed a device in Santa’s stove that measured the electrical signature of the motor that powered the pump that circulated the porridge in the pot. The device sent the data to the cloud, where Viimatech Digital’s unique algorithms analyzed the energy efficiency and condition of the pump and the porridge. The device also alerted Santa if there were any problems with the pump or the porridge, such as dry run, wear, clogging, or overheating.

Santa was very happy with Viimatech Digital’s solution, because it helped him to save energy and money, as well as to prevent any unpredicted interruptions in his porridge cooking process. He could also monitor his porridge remotely from his smartphone, so he didn’t have to worry about leaving the stove unattended while he was busy with his other tasks.

One night, as Santa was about to finish his final check of his sleigh, he heard a beep from his phone. He looked at the screen and saw a message from Viimatech Digital:

“Your porridge is ready! It has reached its best efficiency point and optimal temperature and consistency. Enjoy your meal!”

Santa smiled and thanked Viimatech Digital for their service. He put his phone in his pocket and headed to the kitchen, where he found a steaming pot of porridge waiting for him. He ladled some porridge into a bowl and sprinkled some raisins and almonds on top. He took a spoonful and tasted it. It was the best porridge he had ever had.

He called his elves to join him for dinner. They came running from their workshop, where they had been wrapping the last batch of gifts. They sat around the table and helped themselves to the porridge. They all agreed that it was the best porridge they had ever had.

Santa thanked Viimatech Digital again for their technology and wished them a merry Christmas. He also thanked his grandmother for her recipe and wished her a merry Christmas too. He felt warm and cozy inside, ready for his big night.

He finished his porridge and cleaned his bowl. He put on his red suit and his black boots. He grabbed his sack of gifts and his hat. He went outside and climbed into his sleigh. He checked his reindeer and his navigation system. He gave a thumbs up to his elves and a wink to his wife. He took the reins and said:

“Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

He snapped the reins and the sleigh took off into the sky, leaving behind a trail of magic dust. He flew over the snow-covered roofs and the twinkling lights. He delivered his gifts to the children and ate the cookies and milk they left for him. He spread joy and happiness wherever he went.

He returned to his home in the North Pole, where he was greeted by his elves and his wife. They hugged him and congratulated him on his successful mission. They gave him some more porridge and some hot chocolate. He ate and drank and told them stories of his adventures. He felt happy and proud, grateful for his life.

He went to his bedroom and crawled into his bed. He snuggled with his wife and closed his eyes. He fell asleep and dreamed of porridge and pumps, of children and gifts, of Viimatech Digital and his grandmother, of Christmas and love.


Founded in 2017, Viimatech Digital has proven the technical and commercial advantage of its digital solutions which rely on phase current of the motor driving the pump.

The company is lowering barriers of industrial and utility digitalization by offering cost effective and easy to use IoT to optimize maintenance and energy costs of pumping.
