Establishing a strong base in the US

A number of initiatives have enabled us to establish a base in the United States, and build for an exciting and successful future in the country

Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas. Now playing: RiventaTowards the end of last year, Riventa’s Steve Barrett presented our pilot project with a Nevada water district at WaterStart’s Channels for Innovation Summit, held in Las Vegas.

For the water district in question, the pilot utilised our wireless pump monitoring system to maximise operational performance, recommend asset upgrades and find savings.

We were delighted to present at WaterStart’s summit. It was the beginning of a positive relationship between our two organisations, and we are now part of WaterStart’s tech portfolio. Being within the organisation’s portfolio means we benefit from WaterStart’s ability to connect water companies with innovators such as us, which offer solutions to commonly experienced water challenges.

Working from our US office

Our US office is within WaterStart’s building on East Flamingo Road in Las Vegas, Nevada. We’re currently recruiting for someone to work in the Vegas office and they will work alongside our recently appointed business development executive for the US, Andrew Wetten. Andrew is based on the East Coast and has been developing business in Northern California and across Nevada. As a result, we’ve been working with state water companies to deliver innovative technology and smart strategies to manage costs, and prioritise pump and system maintenance spend.

Networking across Northern California and Nevada

To further develop our network, Andrew has led our participation with NorCal TAG (the Northern California Technology Approval Group), which is an innovation forum run by Isle Utilities, a consultancy that brings together tech businesses and water utility companies.

With Nevada a hub of water innovation, Andrew recently represented us at the American Water Works Association’s ACE18 Conference and Exposition, which took place in the state’s capital, Las Vegas. As a AWWA member we were delighted to be part of such a fantastic event, and look forward to supporting many more such US events in the years to come.
