i2O Water wins prestigious Rushlight Award for clean technology

Posted: Tuesday 10th February 2015

i2O Water, the Smart Pressure Management technology company, has been recognised for its excellence in clean technology by winning a prestigious industry award. It follows the introduction of i2Os Smart Pressure Management platform in 2014 which enables water companies to optimise the performance of their water distribution networks.

i2Os founders Adam Kingdon and Andrew Burrows collected the Rushlight Water Management Award at an award ceremony in London recently.

Conceived and developed by data scientists and engineers in Southampton, UK, i2Os technology combines network intelligence, tools for remotely managing pressure and advanced automation capabilities that learn the characteristics of water flow and pressure throughout distribution networks and intelligently adjust pressures to remove the excesses that accelerate leakage and burst frequency.

i2Os technology is currently used by 66 utilities around the world to save more than 235 million litres of water every day.

i2Os Smart Pressure Management technology provides everything water utilities require to understand and manage water pressures on a single, scalable and rapidly deployed platform. It allows utilities of all sizes to use a range of different pressure management strategies to achieve cost effective improvements in leakage and network management.

The Rushlight Awards bring together leading organisations developing new clean technologies throughout the UK and Ireland. They are supported by a wide range of organisations, including the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Carbon Trust, Technology Strategy Board and Environment Agency. i2O Water previously won a Rushlight Award in 2013.

Andrew Burrows, CTO and co-founder of i2O Water, comments: This award recognises the effort i2O has put into creating technologies that allow water providers of all sizes and locations to reduce leakage and improve network management. Utilities are wrestling with issues such as population growth, urbanisation and greater economic activity in areas where supply is already limited. i2O has demonstrated that it has a major role to play in improving network resilience and driving environmental and efficiency improvements around the world.
