AQUA ROBUR ENABLES SMART WATER INFRASTRUCTURE
In most countries, 20-25% of the fresh water produced is lost due to leakages in the pipelines. Billions of Euros are wasted each year in Europe. Deficient quality of the fresh water coming out from our taps is also an issue to the water utilities around the globe.
In order to detect leakages and water with poor quality, smart and wireless measurement systems are being installed throughout the pipe network. However, the greatest hinder to this development is the power supply for the remotely located devices. Today’s solutions are expensive and inconvenient.
Aqua Robur Technologies provides a ground breaking approach when it comes to power supply in this environment through the Aqua Power Shark system, which converts a small part of the water flow into electrical energy. This enables the installation of a sufficient number of measurement devices at the right spots of the pipelines to fight leakages.
Are you an investor or an expert with an interest for cleantech? Join our community of partners and supporters for a fast paced development towards the European markets.
The Aqua Power Shark system is easily installed next to the measurement devices. Aqua Robur Technologies is formost innovating around two factors, ease of use and pressure drop. The product allow for installation in extremely inaccessible thanks to the thin section of the pipe it require. The design of the turbine and the generator gives a key advantage, a low pressure drop.
The team driving Aqua Robur Technologies has a diverse background in business development, entrepreneurship, financing, mechanical engineering and access decades of experience in specific engineering capabilities through the group of consultants engaged in the company. Three inventors behind the venture’s core technology, have solid experience in turbomachinery and management of R&D and industrial processes. Started as a venture at the top Swedish university incubator, Encubator of Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship, Aqua Robur Technologies has access to a knowledge hub of Chalmers University of Technology.
Niklas is a purposeful growth strategist with a great rapport with Aqua Robur’s customers and partners. He moves things forward both on operational level and when working with our growing network. Niklas holds a MSc at the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and a Bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Chalmers.
