“Water Dragons continues to drive connections, innovations and engagement around new ideas, across the water sector. This final was no exception and it was fantastic to see the different thinking from the presenters who brought a great diversity of solutions to the judges.”

Michael Quinn, Co-Founder of Qinov8 said:

“We are extremely proud to receive validation and recognition that AQUAPEA® is effective at reducing leakage and could be scaled as a global solution. The Water Dragons competition provides great opportunities for innovative technologies like AQUAPEA® to display their game-changing ideas. Innovation is the key to success in all industries and judging by all of the entries this year the water industry is in good hands.

Winning the Water Dragons Award and now working alongside Future Water, will hopefully help us showcase the importance of including AQUAPEA® in every water engineer’s toolbox, as a first response solution to leakage.”
