Lord Lieutenant presents Sentec with Queen’s Award for Innovation
The Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Hugh Duberly, CBE, today visited Sentec, the world leading supplier of smart grid and metering technology, to present CEO Mark England with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation. This is the second year in a row that the company has been honoured with a Queen’s Award. The Mayor of Cambridge, Ian Nimmo-Smith, also attended the event.
The Lord Lieutenant and the Mayor toured the Sentec lab and offices before getting more hands-on with the technology in the demonstration room. Products they experienced included the Aquiba and iPERL smart water meters, a demonstration of the I-ATS smart switching system from American manufacturing partner, Milbank and Sentec’s new smart grid sensor utilising their patented Iris technology.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation, which recognises continual innovation and commercialisation, was awarded to Sentec for its Sterling technology. The Sterling technology is at the heart of both the Sensus iPerl smart water meter, currently being rolled out in the US and the Aquiba A200 smart water meter aimed at the Australian market.
Last year Sentec received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category in recognition of Sentec’s exceptional growth over the last three years, during which period the company more than trebled its overseas earnings to £4.3m.
Mark England, CEO, commented, “It was an honour to welcome the Lord Lieutenant and Mayor to Sentec, show them our technology and see the hard work of the whole team recognised. The award we’ve won this year is for innovation which reflects our skill and experience in the smart metering space.”
