Expands into South Africa and Turkey.
Continuing the growth of its global distribution network, Syrinix announced expansion into South Africa and Turkey, welcoming two new partners – WRP Consulting Engineering and TEKSU – that specialise in water loss management. The Pipeminder-One water and wastewater monitoring solution is now accessible on six continents, with a total of 13 partnerships spanning across eight countries.
James Dunning, CEO of Syrinix, commented: “Our primary goal has always been to serve as a resource for utilities working to conserve water in their networks. Unfortunately, the need to do so is escalating at a much faster pace than ever anticipated by our scientific community.
“As water sources become more and more limited due to environmental causes, such as climate change, we hope our technology will help community leaders recognise that some water loss is within our control. Syrinix technology can make that identification process easy, which is exactly what WRP and TEKSU have decades of experience doing.”
Though separated by more than 10,000 miles, WRP Consulting Engineering in Pretoria, South Africa and TEKSU in Istanbul, Turkey, were both formed with the same objective – water loss management. WRP was formed in 1998 and has expertise in the fields of water resources planning and water conservation, including non-revenue water reduction. The firm offers a full spectrum of services geared to water conservation management, including engineering, planning and design, technology training and software development. WRP also serves neighbouring countries Botswana, Namibia, Eswatini and Lesotho.
TEKSU provides a variety of services, from pipeline assessment and monitoring to modelling and analysis. The company is able to take findings and offer solutions from a comprehensive product portfolio, which will include all Syrinix Pipeminder-One models.
According to the World Resources Institute, South Africa and Turkey fall under medium-high and high baseline water stress levels. It is forecasted that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will be in similar scenarios. Syrinix technology is aimed at helping these at-risk communities with proactive preparation for these unavoidable conditions, helping save as much of this precious resource as possible for future generations.
