Institute of Water accredits Water Networks Training course
A Supply UK training course designed to help reduce surge effect in water networks has received a Certificate of Accreditation from the Institute of Water
- the first course ever to be accredited by the Institute.
Recent research shows that human error in how hydrants, valves and pumps are operated is a major cause of surge effects in water supply networks. Surge is a major cause of leaks and bursts in pipe infrastructure. Much of this harm can be avoided by modifying the way the network is operated - achieved by ensuring operators are thoroughly trained.

"Calmer Networks Training is a win-win for utilities and their customers – reducing leakage, improving water quality, preserving pipework and cutting costs. The benefit is on-going too, with best practice becoming embedded in those utilities that invest in routine training of standpipe operations staff.”

Supply UK joins up with Brazilian firm
Supply UK has joined forces with Brazil’s Vector Technology Group (VTG) to distribute its telemetry-based water services products and software into the UK and Europe.
The joint venture has led to the creation of a new company called Vectora Europe.
Supply UK will manufacture and distribute VTG products across Europe respectively, with direction from VTG’s headquarters in Sao Paulo.
Greater Manchester’s inward investment agency, Midas, which works on behalf of the region to secure new business from overseas investors, has supported the new operation.

“This is an exciting time for our business. Brazil is leading the way in software technology and we’re delighted to take the responsibility of delivering VTG’s services across Europe.
Much of VTG’s technology-based products are not yet available in this part of the world.”

Betaguard from Supply UK
The BetaGuard™ simplifies tower erection by eliminating the need for both horizontal and diagonal braces, reducing the main components to a total of three.
Structural safety is also improved with the bracing integrated into the BetaGuard™ frame. Utilisation and asset management is achieved with ease as individual single bracing members more susceptible to loss, damage and theft are replaced.
Other benefits of the BetaGuard™ include its ability to act as a bridging component to bridge towers, removing the need for bridging lattice beams. Tower erection without trip hazards at base level and a walk in/through facility with high clearance is automatically achieved.
Through creative design the BetaGuard™ provides Affordable Innovation, Achievable Safety and Astounding Simplicity.
