Talbot Cuts Water Use
The Talbot Collection hotels are on a mission to reduce their water footprint and improve water sustainability through collaboration with SMART FLOW, which will provide real-time access to the hotels' water usage with instant alerts to any issues.
The water industry-disrupting technology SMART FLOW saved the Midleton Park Hotel 77% on its water usage, which equates to €91,000 savings on their annual water bill along with 36.5 million litres of water. This resulted in a nationwide rollout.
The Talbot Collection hotels will now have 24/7 real-time access to verified information for their portfolio’s water consumption. The technology developed by SMART FLOW will thus enable the group to pursue its sustainability targets concerning water consumption.
Dave Hogan, the CEO of SMART FLOW, noted: "It was a pleasure working with The Talbot collection Hotels and their group sustainability manager. Our primary goal was to demonstrate how we can easily assist the group in reducing their water usage while protecting their assets against plumbing leaks. SMART FLOW's client base is growing stronger with the addition of many brand names like The Talbot Collection hotels."
Rafal Siuda, group sustainability manager, The Talbot Collection, added, "As group sustainability manager of The Talbot Collection, water conservation was one of my main concerns in our hotels. We highlighted our issues with water usage in one of our Cork-based properties, Midleton Park Hotel.
"SMART FLOW identified the issues and provided the insights to resolve them, along with providing us with full visibility of our water usage. From the initial demo call, through installation to resolving problems, the SMART FLOW team was quick, efficient and professional. After achieving superb results, we are expanding SMART FLOW across all properties in The Talbot Collection."
