Strategic Partnership

This partnership was conceived to help water companies develop ‘healthy,’ resilient water networks, and reduce losses, by combining Black & Veatch’s programme management, logistics, delivery and analytics expertise with Inflowmatix’s unique dynamic (near time) pressure sensing technology. The first result of this collaboration is SERENE™, a service offering for the UK water markets that will provide network insights through a district metered area (DMA) Health Index assessment.
