Elemental Excelerator, Transcend and Suez’s Water Technologies & Solutions join forces

Demonstration project will seek to improve the speed and efficiency of delivering engineering expertise and innovative treatment technologies to emerging markets

Elemental Excelerator and Transcend Software have announced a commercial demonstration project using digital innovation to bring sustainable water treatment solutions to municipal and industrial water users.

Selected as part of Elemental’s ninth cohort, Transcend will collaborate with Suez’s Water Technologies & Solutions on the customisation and implementation of its Transcend Design Generator (TDG) software. Transcend and Suez will test the speed and efficiency in which water and wastewater treatment proposals can be generated through digital automation, improving the speed and volume in which Suez can bring sustainable and innovative treatment technologies to the global water sector.

Steve Davis, COO of Transcend, said: “Suez brings a global presence and a portfolio of innovative technologies that can help address water sustainability, and provide regions with cost effective and sustainable treatment solutions. The combination of Transcend Software and Suez’s global reach and expertise will enable Suez to deliver more value to its customers, much faster than can be done with traditional approaches.”

With a set of chemical, equipment and digital-enabled services and products, Suez’s Water Technologies & Solutions provides water technology and process expertise across industries worldwide. Transcend and Suez will work together to utilise the former’s software to drive the adoption of more sustainable, advanced treatment technologies, with an aim to deliver better outcomes for communities around the world.

Ralph Exton, chief digital officer at Suez’s Water Technologies & Solutions, concluded: “We believe Transcend’s software has the potential to help us create efficiencies in our proposal efforts in ways that will provide additional value to our customers and to our commercial teams. The digital capability that comes with this software may be a significant enabler that will allow us to continue to stay ahead of industry needs and bring our technology solutions to those situations where speed is of the essence.”
