The ‘eureka moment’ for the StormHarvester concept was in 2012 when Brian, our CEO, was working as a civil engineer in Australia. He realised that if the rainwater tanks were emptied before a storm, there would be enough storage capacity to lessen the flooding in the area that happened every year.
After working with Queen’s University Belfast for over three years, he developed an automated water management software platform in 2016.
From then on, the business has seen massive growth and the product portfolio has evolved. StormHarvester now has partners in over 20 countries. StormHarvester’s unique machine learning algorithm is being used by wastewater utilities right across the UK to predict sewer blockages and detect anomalies in sewer flows and levels. This plays a major role in preventing sewer pollutions and flooding, which is key driver for wastewater utility companies today.
