Enzen is a proud sponsor of the Northumbrian Water Group’s annual Innovation Festival, taking place from 8th to 12th July at Newcastle Racecourse.

To celebrate the theme of innovation, we're profiling different Enzen solutions that are helping make energy and water more accessible, affordable and sustainable for all. One of these is our drone-based Digital Asset Management technology, which is improving safety, data quality and service for utilities and their customers.

Many power distribution assets are housed in shafts, tunnels and hard-to-reach areas that need to be inspected manually. The inadequate lighting, damp and cold conditions, restricted space and the inherent dangers make such inspections risky, expensive and time-consuming.

To solve this challenge, Enzen has developed an alternative solution using digital asset management technology alongside lightweight and durable drones. The drones inspect the assets and gather an all-inclusive view based on quantitative and qualitative data, which is then processed through a web-based platform designed specifically for the operations and maintenance of utility assets.

Centralised resource

The outcomes are safer, quicker and more reliable data collection, plus a centralised data resource that ultimately leads to better asset maintenance and less service disruptions for consumers.

The event is fun yet focused, as delegates apply problem-solving techniques like design sprints, data hacks and workshops to find new, creative ways of improving people's lives. To find out more about the event, visit innovationfestival.org.
