Kocaeli Water And Sewerage Administration Relies On Itron Consulting Services And Technology To Reduce Non-Revenue Water

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI) and Manas, Inc. announced today that they were awarded a contract to supply and deliver a comprehensive water solution to Kocaeli Water and Sewage Administration (ISU). ISU, a regional water utility in Turkey, purchased Itron’s commercial and industrial (C&I) water meters, advanced data collection system and software, together with Itron’s consulting and support services. Manas is providing integration, installation and training services. With installation underway, the utility intends to have the system fully deployed by May 2013.

Itron’s unique infrastructure audit and ongoing system monitoring expertise will aid in reducing non-revenue water, which is clean, treated water that is lost in the distribution system and not accounted for in the billing process.

ISU’s water management goals encompass all 600,000 end customers; however, a specific program has been initiated that focuses on the top 1,000 C&I customers, which represent the largest consumers of water in its service territory. Itron’s technology will monitor the C&I accounts’ usage in real-time, which will be critical to capturing anomalies and quickly correcting problems thereby saving costs and conserving water supply. It will also ensure that key customers have access to their detailed consumption on the internet.

“It’s an honor to work with ISU on such a significant water resource management project,” said Mathias Martin, vice president business development of Itron’s Water Group. “By implementing innovative technologies, ISU is leading the way for network optimization and water loss reduction for the whole region.”

“We’ve decided to launch an ambitious non-revenue water program to analyze, identify and reduce water losses. We’re confident that this initiative will result in huge cost savings,” said Mr. Ilhan Bayram, general manager of ISU. “We’re pleased to collaborate with Itron and Manas for the supply of an end-to-end solution focused on large customers.”

“We believe that with this first implementation in Turkey, ISU’s project will serve as an important model that will soon be deployed by other Distribution Companies and in other countries,” said Ahmet Resat Gorur, chairman of Manas.
