Atmos to partner with United Utilities and develop innovative water leak detection technology

In an application process that saw pitches from over 130 suppliers, we are proud to announce that United Utilities has named Atmos as one of its six new partners for Innovation Lab 5.

United Utilities’ Innovation Lab is an idea development programme headed up with L Marks to launch innovations that will transform the water industry.

The 14-week programme will see Atmos develop a multi-method approach improving the performance and monitoring of water pipelines.

Martin Duff, Business Development Director for water said “United Utilities’ Innovation Lab recognizes only the ideas that have the most potential for delivering significant improvements to its operations, so I’m thrilled that we’ve secured a spot on this year’s programme.”
