Syrinix shortlisted for Water Industry Achievement Awards: 'Most Innovative New Technology of the Year'
Syrinix has been shortlisted for the Water Industry Achievement Awards (WIAA) in partnership with Thames Water. The companies are championing Syrinix’s TrunkMinder system in the category of Most Innovative New Technology of the Year.
The WIAA, organised by WET News and Water & Wastewater Treatment, were founded in 2005 to celebrate and reward outstanding innovation in the UK water industry -- and 2013 has seen more than double the entries for 2012, as a result of a wave of new innovation in the water industry, driven by new technologies, such as Syrinix’s TrunkMinder, and a new recognition of the part these technologies can play in utility management.
Syrinix’s TrunkMinder technology is at the forefront of this innovation movement. The technology was developed when Thames Water approached the University of East Anglia to design a system for detecting leaks in trunk mains before they deteriorate into catastrophic bursts. The project eventually grew into a company, Syrinix, and TrunkMinder devices have been commercially deployed in a major rollout by Thames Water and the Crossrail project in London and the SE of England.
