As the world of clean tech has lost a little of its shine new technologies are being delivered to the market. Consider the beauty and vitality of our underground wastewater ways that construct the sewers right under our cars and feet. These connected pipes are monitored and read for determining speed and health of the wastewater. Newer technologies are required to manage these complex systems. News of “The New Economy Selects Electro Scan Inc. as Recipient of Global 2013 Clean Tech Award for Water & Wastewater” is now released.
Electro Scan Inc. has been awarded the 2013 Clean Tech Award for Best Water and Wastewater Solutions presented by The New Economy a quarterly magazine held the ceremony at the London Stock Exchange.
Aimed at unearthing the new global clean tech elite – the champions of tomorrow – awards were announced in The New Economy’s Winter 2014 edition – one of the few periodicals authorized for distribution at the World Economic Forum held January 22-25, 2014 in Davos, Switzerland. “Disruptive technologies, like Electro Scan, that alter decisions often represent the biggest breakthroughs in our economy,” reports Herald Online from London.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our game-changing products,” states Chuck Hansen, Chairman & CEO, Electro Scan Inc. Besides growing revenues over ten times in the last twelve months, this is a great way to start the year.”
“Electro Scan’s technology overhauls the condition assessment of sewers, storm drains, and water pipes by finding & measuring defects not detected by the most advanced closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. Easily added to existing TV trucks and able to assess pipes at the rate of +50 feet (15 meters) per minute, Electro Scan automatically locates defects to the closest 0.4 inches (1 centimeter). More importantly, it provides an estimated defect flow in gallons per minute (liters per second).”
As utilities move more to smart grid operations, technologies that offer telemetry and wireless opportunities to manage big data flow can monitor the complex underground water ways. The valuation of the pipes , storm drains and sewers are the hidden circulatory system that users pay little attention.
The sewers are like our circulatory system that is often taken for granted until there is a blockage or it is impacted. New technologies can support the vast systems to alert our utilities on failures, upgrades and new design opportunities.
