Peterborough company puts less water into Bath

A PETERBOROUGH-based water technology company has reduced water consumption at the Royal United Hospital Bath NHS Trust by 48 per cent.

Aquavent UK used a combination of its patented pressure reducing valve and hydraulic flow modulator (left) in the hospital’s water system.

Consumption is expected to drop by 24 million litres per year, which will deliver a return on investment in the equipment within one year, according to Mark Lock, managing director of Aquavent.

There will be additional peripheral cost savings and a reduced impact on the environment.
