At the invitation of Dajiang Environment Corporation, Rudy Dijkstra, General Manager of Acquaint, travelled to Nanjing, China, for a business trip. Today Rudy arrived in Nanjing, where he will participate in the International Top-level Forum on Engineering Science and Technology 2019 & the 4th Singapore-Nanjing Eco Hi-Tech Island International Water Environment Management Summit. The summit is held 16-17 October 2019. On Thursday 17 October 2019 Rudy Dijkstra will be a guest speaker during the Round-table Talk on Global Water Innovation and pitch Acquaint’s state of art technology during the Grand Final of “Yangtze Water Award” Global WaterTech Challenge.
The International Water Environment Management Summit is organized by the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), co-organized by the Division of Environmental & Light Textile Engineering, CAE, Nanjing Jianye People’s Government and Dajiang Environment Corporation. The summit is supported by International Water Association, Jiangsu Nanjing Eco Hi-tech Island Economic Development Zone, Sino-Singapore Nanjing Eco Hi-tech Island Development Co., Ltd. and Nanjing Jiangdao Institute of Environmental Research.
Sino-Singapore Nanjing Eco Hi-tech Island is a township development project jointly developed by the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry, CPC Jiangsu Committee and the Provincial Government of Jiangsu. With a total area of 15.21 km2 and gross investment of over RMB 100 billion, the Island will be developed into a new model of Sino-Singapore cooperation and a sample of sustainable cities of innovation, entrepreneurship and city-industry integration and become an incomparable “Eco Hi-tech city, Low Carbon Smart Island”. During the summit academicians, experts and business leaders in the water and science industry from China, the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan and other countries and regions, come together to discuss about the water environment management and global water innovation. Rudy Dijkstra, General Manager and co-founder of Acquaint, will be a guest speaker on Thursday 17 October 2019 the Round-table Talk on Global Water Innovation. He will share Acquaint’s water related best practices and innovation experiences.
The afternoon program will focus on the Grand Final of “Yangtze Water Award” Global WaterTech Challenge. Acquaint was selected for the final stage of the Yangtze Water Award. This Global WaterTech Challenge, organized by Singapore-Nanjing Eco Hi-Tech Island, showcases the best of Sino-Singapore collaboration and aims to create a model city that promotes low carbon renovation and a green upgrade of the water S&T industry. The aim of the challenge is to gather innovations in water science and technology from around the world and share a common interest in practical solutions for sustainable development through global water innovation. In the afternoon pitches and the awarding ceremony will take place. Rudy Dijkstra will pitch Acquaint’s state of the art technology, that will increase the reliability of pipeline utilities.
Asset owners are facing a future with an increase of NRW (Non-Revenue Water) and a higher leakage rate. The remaining technical lifespan is in general unclear and it is hard to prioritize maintenance. This causes an increased risk level. Acquaint can provide a new level of risk control by means of collected degradation rates through pipeline inspection, data science and a consistent asset management approach.
The winning teams and individuals of the Yangtze Water Award will receive exclusive interviews with media, will be given the priority to enter the technology island with low cost and will receive assistance in applying for the talent introduction plan.
