We've acquired Oxford Scientific Software, developers of the Aquator water resources modeling software.
On the 10th of October we acquired Oxford Scientific Software, developers of the Aquator software platform.
Aquator software enables engineers and analysts to create and run complex models of water resources systems, providing insight into system performance under current and future supply, demand and environmental conditions in order to make better planning, development and resourcing decisions.
Oxford Scientific Software was established in Oxford, UK in 1994, and the company developed Aquator to provide a robust and highly capable water resources modeling tool after the team had developed custom models for large water utility companies.
Our Hydro-Logic® Services team has been working with Oxford Scientific Software since 2007, providing expert consultancy and modeling support, and has been a partner in the development of Aquator applications software since 2014. With the acquisition, the team will now work with Oxford Scientific Software founders Chris Green, Peter Edgley and Will Clark to expand and enhance the capabilities of the software to deliver deeper and more comprehensive insight to clients.
Aquator is the only water resources/supply software in the world with the right to use Microsoft Visual Basic® for Applications (VBA) to customize its models—making it uniquely capable of helping water providers to overcome their most important challenges.
“The acquisition of Aquator is a very exciting development for us and for the sector. It’s an extremely powerful modeling tool that we’ve been using for many years, and bringing it in house will enable us to develop it further and to provide water companies, regulators and consultants with even more valuable water resources intelligence. This kind of data-led decision making is critical for water companies to deal effectively and sustainably with the supply and demand pressures that population growth and climate change are placing on existing and future water systems.”
