Spring launches a new "accelerator challenge" based on condition monitoring

Water sector innovation hub Spring has launched its next ‘accelerator challenge’: it is seeking new solutions for water companies to monitor the health of electro-mechanical assets and predict faults occurring due to changing environments and unpredicted events.

The new competition is being hosted in partnership with Innovate UK KTN, which specialises in connecting innovators with new partners. The partners said proposed solutions are particularly welcome from industries that use sensors and prediction tools to monitor the health of their electro-mechanical assets, such as pumps and valves.

The challenge links to the sector ambition ‘delivering resilient infrastructure systems which can adapt to future challenges’ set out in the joint 2050 Water Innovation Strategy.

Successful applicants will be asked to pitch their innovations to Spring and a group of water sector representatives. Selected solutions may enter into a collaborative trial at water company sites, with the possibility of uptake by multiple water companies if projects are successful.

The challenge is now open for entries until 14 November 2022. Find full details and apply HERE:
