THE NEW SEAMLESS IOT PLATFORM
FOR THE WATER SECTOR
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.
Brining everything together – The brand new Fenix Hub combines the state of art wireless communication platform LoRa with the innovative power supply, which replaces the need of changing batteries and digging for grid connections; The new Fenix Hub is developed to meet the needs of the modern remote measurement strategy, which strive towards real time data transfer and a high sensor density. In practice, this put high expectations on the power supply to be flexible, durable and cost effective. This is what the Fenix Hub has been optimised for.
The Fenix Hub 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. 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.
