Itron in Smart Meter Pact With Manas, Turkish Water Utility

Itron Inc. (ITRI), a smart-meter provider, and Manas Energy Management Inc. said they were awarded a supply and installation contract with a regional water utility in Turkey to help cut costs and reduce water loss.

Kocaeli Water and Sewage Administration, or ISU, purchased commercial and industrial water meters for an undisclosed price that will help the utility reduce non-revenue water, or clean, treated water that’s lost during distribution, the Liberty Lake, Washington-based company said today in a statement.

Installation is under way by Manas, with the system for ISU’s top 1,000 commercial and industrial water consumers to be fully operational by May, said Itron, whose technology will monitor account usage in real time to capture “anomalies.”
