Electro Scan Inc. (Electro Scan) is pleased to announce an important staff expansion both in Canada and the US. With a dramatic increase in revenues, new customers, and pipeline condition assessment industry acceptance of the groundbreaking low-voltage conductivity technology, the company has added outstanding technical credentials with two pipe inspection experts.

"We're delighted to add two outstanding industry experts to the Electro Scan Team," stated Chuck Hansen, Founder, and Chief Executive Officer, Electro Scan. "Luc Lupien's experience with potable water Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining projects and Nick Jackson's established history of selling Electro Scan products and services at the company's largest dealer in the Southeast US, will allow both hit the ground running; especially with our new Potable Water Leak Detection solution.”

Luc Lupien, Director of Business Development, Canada
Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Lupien joins Electro Scan following 25 successful years in the polymers business, performing sales and marketing for companies such as Dow Chemical and BASF Corporation, covering both Canada and the US. In the most recent 12 years, Lupien served the Municipal Potable Water Market where he developed the North American market for Aqua-Pipe technology and worked with Sanexen. Lupien now looks forward to advancing the Canadian market for Electro Scan's cutting-edge technology.

Nick Jackson, Director of Business Development, US
Based in Oxford, Mississippi, Jackson, US, Nick joins the company after previously working with Electro Scan's largest independent distributor in the US Southeast, Kazmier & Associates. Holding a BS degree in Nuclear and Radiological Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, US, Nick is an experienced technical sales professional with a strong history selling instrumentation and water infrastructure process equipment, including Electro Scan products and services. He will be supporting in-house sales and business development of Electro Scan's US potable water leak detection solution, in addition to gravity sewer leak detection products and services.

The company’s innovative low-voltage pipe inspection technology offers unparalleled advantages to pipeline owners over legacy acoustic leak detection and visual inspection methods and can be applied in both pressure and gravity pipe systems. Electro Scan's patented solutions provide utilities 1 cm locational accuracy while quantifying leak severities in either gal/min. or l/sec.

Both Lupien and Jackson joined Electro Scan on 2 April 2021 and are already connecting with old and new friends.

"Returning global economies to healthy growth will depend largely on municipal utilities and the private sector alike to proactively adapt to our now disrupted reality," stated Hansen. "Focusing on business as usual is no longer acceptable, as people need to show real results to reducing infiltration and non-revenue water losses, setting data-driven priorities for capital spending, and testing pipeline repairs, rehabilitation, and renewals for water tightness that were once given a free pass by legacy inspection technologies that relied on listening for leaks or visual inspection."

Digital transformation of water utilities will have a profound impact on the way pipelines are selected for repair and rehabilitation, in many cases causing dramatic shifts in prioritising capital expenditures when compared to the use of legacy technologies.
