Northern Ireland Water (NI Water) is the sole provider of water and sewage services in Northern Ireland. Almost 1.8 million people across the country count on them to supply 605 million litres of clean water and treat 362 million litres of wastewater daily.
Over 1,500 staff—approximately 500 of whom are frontline workers—operate and maintain thousands of assets and supply production, mechanical and electrical services, as well as metering and billing.
While NI Water had a variety of portable gas monitors in their fleet to detect the presence of hazardous gases, their existing devices did not supply real-time gas readings, had no connectivity, and no built-in two-way communication capabilities.
As an organisation that has always prided itself on being at the forefront of safety and innovation across its extensive operations, NI Water sought out a more progressive—and scalable–solution.
