MONTREAL, Canada, July 29, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Avensys Inc., a subsidiary of Manaris Corp., announced today that its Intelligent Bubbler System has been selected by Hydro-Quebec for certain critical water level measurement applications. It and Hydro-Quebec, one of North America's preeminent energy producers and distributors, collaborated in the development of the system.
This joint effort has led to the successful introduction of the Intelligent Bubbler System, which is the most technologically advanced bubbler currently on the market. Water reserves are critical assets for hydro-electricity applications and this system can help producers secure accurate and timely information on their electricity generating capacities.
"Working in concert with Hydro-Quebec has permitted Avensys to accelerate the development of our breakthrough system, and this first large order from Hydro-Quebec marks the successful fruition of a very important collaboration," said Martin d'Amours, President and CEO of Avensys. "Our Intelligent Bubbler System has passed a series of very demanding tests with flying colors, and we anticipate that it will prove to be in great demand for a number of hydrology applications throughout the world."
Avensys' Intelligent Bubbler System is an automated system used to measure the level of both surface and ground water. The System can also be used for industrial applications to remotely measure levels of liquids in tanks and reservoirs as well as for critical hydrological applications like flood prevention. While single-tube bubblers have existed for many years, Avensys' multi-tube bubbler, which is based on a patent owned by Hydro-Quebec and features proprietary, state-of-the-art software, adds a significant level of precision and reliability.
