WaterForce Adapts to Challenges of Remote Work Sites
GrayMatter co-innovated with Hershey, Pa.-based Keystone Clearwater Solutions to create WaterForce — a new way of thinking about water management solutions for the oil and gas industry.
Remote drill sites are often tucked into hillsides that interrupt radio signals or are too far from populated areas to access cell phone communications.
Those challenges have led many to believe it’s not feasible to use wireless technology to monitor and control water pipeline systems.
That’s why GrayMatter and Keystone Clearwater Solutions worked together to create WaterForce, a smart-sensor, turnkey solution that’s flexible enough to adapt to any terrain.
“One of our customers described it as the Cadillac of automated water management systems.”
Jeff Wehler, Senior Vice President & Controller, Keystone Clearwater Solutions, LLC
