AQS and Panton McLeod strike up clean water solution partnership
AQS Environmental Solutions is working in partnership with UK water quality engineering specialist Panton McLeod to deliver innovative clean water solutions in Ireland.
The relationship allows customers to benefit from AQS' suction and jetting technology and expertise, combined with Panton McLeod's chemical cleaning and clean water maintenance systems.
The partnership will provide clean water suppliers with faster, more cost-effective and safer methodologies for surveying, cleaning and repairing reservoirs and clean water pipelines. Clean water suppliers will gain access to Panton McLeod's PM88 system that allows reservoirs to be cleaned and returned to service quickly and safely in a way that removes the risk of cryptosporidium contamination.
AQS technical director Rónán Beasley said: "We're delighted to be working in partnership with Panton McLeod to offer a unique and powerful combination of expertise to the Irish water supply market.PM88 is the market leading non-aggressive reservoir cleaning system in the UK.
“Working together, we have already proven its worth in Ireland. Return-to-service times are shorter, and cleaning is more effective.At the same time, we are using the best and most modern vacuum and suction technology, by deploying our brand new JHL SuperFlex jet vac tanker on reservoir cleaning projects."
Panton McLeod business development director Paul Henderson said: "AQS is the ideal partner for us in Ireland. Its team shares our values and ethos for delivering innovative and high quality potable water system cleaning technologies.
"By working together with AQS in this exciting partnership, we‘re convinced we will be in a strong position to offer water suppliers with the very best reservoir cleaning and maintenance service in Ireland."
The PM88 system has been used to clean a 100-megalitre reservoir in the Dublin area, with the project completed in two weeks, compared with the six weeks it would have taken conventional mechanical cleaning.
AQS, part of Lanes Group, is also making use of Panton McLeod's robotic technology, where mini submarines and crawling robots are deployed to carry out surveys and cleaning tasks.
