Riventa establishing a strong base in the US

17/07/2018


A number of initiatives have enabled pump system optimisation experts, Riventa, to establish a strong base in the United States, and build for an exciting and successful future in the country.

Towards the end of last year, Riventa’s Steve Barrett presented the company’s 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 Riventa’s wireless pump monitoring system to maximise operational performance, recommend asset upgrades and find savings.

The Channels for Innovation presentation was the beginning of a positive relationship between Riventa and WaterStart, with Riventa now part of WaterStart’s tech portfolio. This means the company benefits from WaterStart’s ability to connect water companies with innovators to offer solutions to commonly experienced water challenges.

Riventa’s US office base

The US office is within WaterStart’s building on East Flamingo Road in Las Vegas, Nevada. Riventa is currently recruiting for someone to work in the Vegas office and they will work alongside the recently appointed business development executive for the US, Andrew Wetten. Andrew has been developing business in Northern California and across Nevada. As a result, Riventa has 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 its network, Andrew has led Riventa’s 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, Riventa’s Andrew Wetten also recently represented the company 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, Riventa were delighted to be part of such a fantastic event. The company looks forward to supporting many more such US events in the years to come.
