Utilis officially opened its new U.S.-based subsidiary in San Diego. Elected officials and representatives from local utilities attended the opening event to learn about new innovation in the leak detection sector and the company’s upcoming pilot project for the City of San Diego, where Utilis will provide 100 points of interest signifying possible leaks.

Utilis is the world’s only leak detection provider that uses satellite remote sensing, according to the release. Utilis analyzes satellite imagery to detect leaks, which are processed by the company’s unique algorithms. The data is then displayed in Geopolitical Intelligence Services (GIS) reports, which include a map with street and pipe locations.

Utilis chose San Diego for its second location due to the availability of  talent and California’s interest in water conservation. Guests included organizations such as the City of Oceanside Water Utilities Department, California American Water, and SUEZ of North America.
