VAPAR

What is VAPAR?

VAPAR is a cloud platform that automates condition assessment directly from pipe CCTV footage. VAPAR users enjoy superior accuracy in the tracking of maintenance and repair requirements for this infrastructure in addition to significant savings in associated labour costs.

Mission

Delivering the right technology to eliminate repetitive manual tasks in infrastructure management.

We partner with our customers on their biggest challenges and use the latest technology to provide compelling solutions.

History

VAPAR was founded in January 2018 by two Australian engineers on a mission to automate manual tasks in asset management.

Today, the VAPAR platform processes over two hundred thousand metres of wastewater infrastructure for dozens of clients across Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Since its establishment, VAPAR has received over $1.2 million in funding from the Australian Government, NSW Government, and some of Australia’s most ambitious investors.
