Aquasentry

Aquasentry

Aquasentry was formed on 25th April 1986 by Peter Docherty as Aqualarm, providing basic pollution monitoring equipment. On seeing the potential in the products and the markets the Bayford Group decided to invest in the company in 1987 and in 1988 the name was changed to PMD Technologies Ltd. Over the years the company has manufactured and supplied many environmental products including sewage monitoring equipment, pollution control devices, leak detection equipment, as well as spill response and environmental consultation. By January 2006 the Bayford Group out rightly purchased PMD Technologies and introduced the trading name Aquasentry. Today the company is committed to providing tailored solutions for your environmental needs and with the introduction of FOG, firewater and rain water harvesting services the clients feel confident that Aquasentry are the experts to rely on.

Do you understand what is needed to protect the environment?

It is important that everyone understands their responsibilities when it comes to both British and European law, the guidance provided by the Environmental Agency and the potential hazards of spills, leaks and accidents to the environment. With the introduction of the “Polluter Pays Principle” in 2004 it is vital that you not only know your responsibilities but are also able to deal with any incidents in an effective and speedy manner.
 
Need Help?

Environmental Accidents can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds, cause massive business delays and ruin a reputation. Aquasentry can help with recommendations and next steps to ensure that your business is secure.

Since 1986, Aquasentry has been successfully developing and manufacturing a range of innovative products. These are designed to prevent pollution, control spillages and conserve the environment effectively and reliably.

As an established leader in the supply and installation of pollution prevention, conservation and spill control technologies, we believe that saving money is just as important as environmental compliance. You can be assured that our proposals are environmentally friendly as well as economically effective.

European legislation states ‘If the spillage goes into the water network, then any costs incurred by the Environment Agency, will be recovered from the polluter’. Known as the POLLUTER PAYS POLICY.  We work alongside the Environmental Authorities so all our products are fully compliant with the latest legislation, codes of practice and guidelines that are vital for companies looking to ensure EA compliance.
 
In the event of a spill you have to also pay the ongoing costs to restore the water source back to its natural habitat. You may also need to undertake site restoration to get your business back to working form. Can you afford the time and expense of an out of control spill?
