Scottish Water Partners with Glasgow Cleantech Firm Hypervine

Glasgow-based startup Hypervine seeks to aid Scotland’s net-zero ambitions as it offers its artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology in a new partnership.

The company’s tech will provide end-to-end site data for construction and mining firms, boosting efficiencies whilst enabling reductions in carbon emissions.

Hypervine’s tech turns construction site activities into measurable site metrics. By combining data captured from satellites, Hypervine provides end-to-end site data that aims to bring predictability to site activities, creating improvements in efficiencies in time, money and carbon emissions.

“Hypervine has come a long way since its inception,” says Paul Duddy, CEO and Founder of Hypervine.

He added: “Since that starting point, we have grown our product stack significantly, our technology now helps construction firms win bids, reduce costs and improve their carbon footprints whilst giving visibility over previously unattainable site operations. We are proud partners in this and see an exciting digital future for construction, working together to reach net zero across the industry.”

Digitising the construction process, alongside providing a record of all activities into and out of construction sites is key to hitting these emissions targets – a process that will no doubt have to be catalysed across multiple industries following COP26.

Paul Ingham, Operations Director Scotland for Morrison Construction, commented: “After trialling Hypervine on some of our sites and being impressed with the initial outcomes, we saw an opportunity to invite Hypervine in as a partner on our DV2 bid to Scottish Water.

“Leveraging the economic and environmental savings created by its technology are essential in achieving Morrison’s ambition to differentiate as the Greenest Construction Partner as we maximise carbon reduction across our operations.

“Working with Hypervine has been both informative and a pleasure; the team’s dedication and attention to detail has helped shape the framework, adding alternative options to our capabilities in achieving Operational Excellence and building a sustainable future for our customers and communities.”

Construction companies and projects of such magnitude are faced with real difficulties when meeting emissions targets, The World Green Building Council calculates that 11% of global energy-related carbon emissions are from materials and construction, whilst the production of cement accounts for 8% of global carbon emissions according to the Chatham House thinktank.
