Media Release: Water expert makes waves at IWEX Conference

WATER quality engineering firm, Panton McLeod, has been unveiled as one of the key speakers at this year’s prestigious IWEX exhibition.

The Scottish company’s managing director, Iain Weir, will be making a high profile presentation at this year’s event in Birmingham – the UK water sector’s biggest trade exhibition – to showcase the innovative work of Panton McLeod’s robotic division.

During the presentation, entitled Robotic Inspection & Cleaning of Drinking Water Reservoirs, Iain will explain how the firm’s robotic team is revolutionising the UK water sector – by providing the most environmentally-friendly method of cleaning and inspecting water storage facilities.

The talk is part of a wider programme of talks about innovation and asset management in the water sector, featuring speakers from some of the biggest names in the industry.

Iain said: “It’s a tremendous honour to be speaking at the IWEX conference. It is one of the biggest events in the water sector and attracts many high profile names from throughout the industry – so it is a chance for us to strengthen our reputation as the UK’s leading water quality engineer.

“We have been using our robotic equipment for a number of years and it has now become a key component of our work across the UK. We have deployed our ROV and VR600 machines in high profile projects for some of the biggest names in the industry – such as Scottish Water and Severn Trent Water – and we are continuing to showcase the robots for new clients.

“However, there will still be many people who have not heard of these machines before or who may not realise just how beneficial they are when performing routine cleaning or inspection work on underground water tanks.

“By showcasing this innovative work at IWEX, we hope to further promote our equipment and services and spread our influence across the country.”

The robots have previously been used to complete cleaning and inspection work in projects across the Wales and Wiltshire regions, in addition to cleaning a major water storage facility in Glasgow for Scottish Water.

Panton McLeod is one of the leading names in the provision of cleaning, repairs and inspection services to the water sector, and works with many of the UK’s biggest water companies. It provides traditional drain-down projects, robotic cleaning and inspection work and high quality repairs for structures that are used to store drinking water.

IWEX is the UK’s leading water and effluent event which showcases the latest water technologies and industry expertise. Part of Sustainability Live, the IWEX exhibition takes place at the NEC in Birmingham and attracts tens of thousands of delegates from across the UK water sector.
