Electro Scan agrees partnership with WRc

WRc has agreed a partnership with US firm Electro Scan to offer its innovative pipe condition assessment solutions to the UK and Ireland wastewater market.

The deal between Electro Scan’s UK subsidiary and WRc will see Electro Scan’s services offered on an exclusive basis through WRc’s Assess and Address business unit.

Headquartered in Sacramento, California, Electro Scan designs advanced instrumentation, mobile, and cloud computing applications that automatically locate, measure, and report defects in water, sewer and gas pipelines. Its major US customers include the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, California and Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, Florida. In the UK, Electro Scan has worked with Severn Trent Water, and in April 2015 was awarded Best Project by the UK Society of Trenchless Technology for its work with the Midlands utility.

“WRc’s proven track record of partnering with innovative technology companies is central to growing our pipeline condition assessment business,” said Dale Hartley, Commercial Manager, WRc. “Electro Scan’s product features and benefits fit nicely into our ‘best of breed’ bespoke portfolio offering.”

Mark Grabowski, General Manager, Electro Scan Inc, added: “WRc’s reputation for innovation and consultancy was a key factor in our decision to team in the UK. Given the ending of AMP5 and beginning of AMP6 in the UK, WRc appears well positioned to help optimize CAPEX, OPEX, and TOTEX decision making.”

WRc’s Assess and Address business unit has achieved recent contract success in August 2015 when WRc secured the Scottish Water SR15 Pipeline Inspection and Condition Assessment Framework for a six year period, with an option to extend for a further six years.
