— The Leading Pipeline Inspection Technology & Service Firm to Strengthen Its International Impact
San Diego, CA – November 30th, 2018 – Today, Aquam Corporation (“Aquam”) announced that it has appointed Simon Wick the General Manager for Aquam Pipe Diagnostics (APD), its pipeline diagnostics subsidiary. An internationally recognized water industry expert of nearly 30 years, Simon brings his wealth of experience in non-revenue water reduction, infrastructure asset management, and risk mitigation. This further strengthens APD’s global impact with its first-in-class technology and services targeted at the live inspection of aging pipeline infrastructure worldwide.
Simon transitioned from Matchpoint Water Asset Management, an APD client, where he was responsible for non-revenue water reduction, infrastructure failure risk mitigation, as well as expanding its footprint to the Western US. “We are delighted to have Simon aboard. Simon’s experience in the industry and his business acumen are a natural fit with Aquam.” Says Dan Squiller, CEO of Aquam. “Together, we look forward to delivering more innovative pipeline diagnostics solutions to utilities and other sectors.”
Prior to Matchpoint, Simon held sales, project management, and field engineering positions at Halma Water Management (formerly Palmer Environmental) in the UK. He started his career at Cambridge Water Plc where he rose through the ranks to the position of Chief Inspector. While at Cambridge Water Plc, Simon focused on leading his team and executing District Metered Area tests and innovative leak detection practices. He left behind the lowest ever recorded level of water loss the company had witnessed.
The world continues to tackle the aging infrastructure problem, and the US will need trillions of dollars to upgrade its water and wastewater infrastructure, according to the recently released Fourth National Climate Assessment. It is therefore paramount for utilities to have the technology and expertise advisory necessary to prioritize their Capital Improvement Programs (CIP), reduce the risk of infrastructure failure and lower losses from non-revenue water. Simon’s leadership skills and industry knowledge are a great fit with APD’s vision as he has led a diverse array of asset management projects, each designed to Prioritize capital asset investments, reduce the risk of failure and save overall costs for utilities, contractors and engineers.
“I am excited about leading the APD team and bringing our innovative technologies to accurately assess utilities’ live pipeline infrastructure without disrupting their operations,” says Simon. “We are eager to propagate a movement of using data-driven tools for water and wastewater utilities to save resources and costs. With the capabilities of pipe condition assessment, live leak detection and visual assessment, I am here with my team to help the world’s utilities cost-effectively understand, manage, and improve their pipeline assets.”

Daniel Krywyj founder and R&D director of JD7 recently gave an interview on BBC radio as to the growth and benefits of JD7 across the world.
The broadcast covered much of the central and northern UK and covered areas where JD7 have made a breakthrough with their unique technology.
Aquam, a world-leading clean-tech firm, and JD7, which offers pipeline assessment technologies, has reached definitive terms for the acquisition of JD7.
Aquam’s addition of JD7 and other subsidiaries, these being Nu Flow Technologies and Nu Flow, creates a dynamic tandem of diagnostics to assist Nu Flow working inside closed loop piping systems (such as water mains and fire suppression systems), as well as the ab ility to rehabilitate these inside infrastructure systems without destruction.
“This acquisition solidifies our position in the world as the number one small diameter pipe analytics and repair service,” Nu Flow CEO Cameron Manners said. “The technology that will be in the hands of hundreds of Nu Flow licensees worldwide will create a driving force that will become the preferred solution to aging infrastructure.”
“This will greatly enhance our market place in the USA and other regions where Nu Flow has over 300 licences for the smaller diameter mains,” JD7 Managing Director Stuart Hamilton said. “And will allow us to expand our sales and service division for the large diameter mains using JD7’s LDS1000 for leakage surveys and other specialist technologies that are at the forefront of technology available in the world today.”
Daniel Krywyj Technical Director also commented, “These are very exciting times for JD7 and Nu Flow and with this joining of forces, will position AQUAM at the forefront of the water and gas networks systems, allowing the group to offer a turnkey solution for clients regardless of what industry they are in.”
The Aquam group will fully address the failing infrastructure problem that has been plaguing the world for decades in all materials and all diameter mains in every situation from sewage to water to gas.
