Gradiant, a solutions provider for advanced water and wastewater treatment, announced a partnership with SpaceAge Labs (SAL), a Singapore-headquartered digital tech company focused on water and wastewater distribution systems. By leveraging SAL’s core expertise in water distribution networks and assets, the alliance will expand Gradiant’s digital AI solutions for water and wastewater facilities into an integrated offering in total water infrastructure.
Why did Gradiant onboard SpaceAge Labs’ solution?
The new partnership results in a differentiated and complete solution for industrial and municipal clients around the world. Gradiant will adopt SAL’s proprietary technology hydroEye AI, a cloud-based AI digital twin technology that provides real-time visibility of water, wastewater, and stormwater networks through intuitive web and mobile dashboards.
The data intelligence offered by the combined solution will enable public and private sector clients to perform predictive maintenance by detecting events in the distribution network before they occur, identify the event source, and take action to proactively resolve issues.
SAL’s tech will complement Gradiant’s SmartOps digital AI solution, an integrated platform for plant performance optimization and asset management. The productivity of facilities are improved by identifying areas needing attention and proactively predicting the likelihood of future events, such as the need for cleaning or replacement of membranes and equipment.
What does the partnership mean for stakeholders?
Commenting on the partnership, Deepak Pitta, CEO of SpaceAge Labs, said, “We are thrilled to establish this global strategic partnership as we combine our state-of-the-art AI and IoT devices with Gradiant’s industry-leading digital solutions in water and wastewater treatment.”
“This synergy enables the digital transformation for industrial and municipal end-users and harnesses the power of AI to protect and optimize water and wastewater assets,” Pitta said.
“Gradiant’s leadership in industrial water and proven digital AI solutions, together with SAL’s expertise in water distribution systems, will deliver innovative solutions to our global customers in a holistic and integrated approach,” said Prakash Govindan, COO of Gradiant.
“We are committed to delivering artificial intelligence-powered automation, predictive maintenance, and operations optimization using machine learning algorithms and data analytics in a complete and integrated platform that no one else can offer,” Govindan said.
