Midas Technologies & Aquavent UK Save NHS More Water and Costs

Aquavent UK the water consultancy and product division of Midas Technologies (GB) Ltd recently commissioned the installation of 2 of their Aquai-Mod® hydraulic flow modulation devices reducing Addenbrookes hospitals water consumption by up to 110 million litres per year. This equates to 1.4 million baths or 109 million 1 litre bottles of water and up to £141,000.00 of cost savings per year.
Aquavent UK conducted an initial free pressure management assessment of the site and then submitted a formal cost proposal and project plan, which was implemented by Cambridge University Hospitals Trust. Provisional predictions by Aquavent were a third of what has been achieved through careful planning and
the Aquai-Mod® technology that requires no human intervention as the system works on a consumer demand basis. Ian Jackson, Capital Infrastructure Manager at the hospital, said of the installation “Aquavent approached Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) with a proposal to install their Aquai-Mod® pressure stabilisation device as a water saving/cost reduction project.
Aquavent carried out a considerable amount of monitoring of water supplies liaising with Addenbrookes water supplier, Cambridge Water, to ensure that the project was feasible and that good base consumption data was established, to demonstrate that the savings were realised. Their approach has been one of working professionally, in close partnership with CUH to ensure that the installation, commissioning and ongoing validation of the project has minimum impact upon the operation of CUH and Patient care, this approach gave CUH certainty over the project and initially indicating savings of over £47,000.00 per annum. The project has been a great success for CUH being relatively easy to implement thanks to the professional approach of Aquavent UK and the Aquai-Mod® product.
