Elster Group SE (ELTTY), a gas, electricity and water meter provider, won an order from the Brazilian utility Sanepar to supply 105,000 single-jet smart water meters in the next three months. No terms were disclosed.

The order from Curitiba-based Sanepar, or Companhia de Saneamento do Parana, was announced today by both companies.
