Cleantech Innovation Award - WINNER

Perceptive Engineering's work in the water sector has been recognised at the recent Rushlight Awards.

The UK National awards have been running for 10 years and celebrate innovation in the fields of cleantech and sustainability. 

Perceptive won the award for Advanced Process Control in wastewater treatment.  WaterMV is able to reduce operating costs, increase process headroom, and reduce the risk of non-compliance.

Global IChemE Innovation Award - Shortlist

A research project run by Perceptive at the University of Strathclyde, using Perceptive's software and expertise, has been shortlisted in the prestigious IChemE global awards 2015.

Perceptive has developed the tools necessary to optimise the performance of scalable continuous reactors, offering increased yield, lower energy and greater flexibility in these next-generation process units.

Investors in People 2015 - Bronze Award

At our first attempt, Perceptive Engineering achieved the standards required to attain the Bronze Award from IIP.  The inspectors told us that we were only just short of the much-more-rigorous Silver standard, so that's next!

Water Industry Achievement Awards 2015:  WINNER

We are extremely proud to have won the category 'Most Innovative Use of Existing Technology' in the annual Water Industry Achievement Awards.
As well as providing more reliable, more compliant and more efficient process control, our WaterMV software gives operators the information they need, when they need it.

Water Industry Achievement Awards 2015:  Finalist

Finalist in the category 'Most Innovative Use of Existing Technology' for developing Advanced Monitoring tools that calculate and display the true cost of missing or unreliable data.  This 'Lost Opportunity Report' demonstrates the value of good data and enables operations staff to prioritise maintenance scheduling.
