RWE Subsidiary Selects Itron To Bring Efficient Water Supply To Urban Areas In Western Germany

Stocks in this article: ITRI

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ:ITRI), a global technology company that helps utilities measure, manage and analyze water and energy, announced today that RWW (Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft), a water supplier located in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, selected Itron to enable more efficient delivery of water in urban areas of Western Germany. RWW is a subsidiary of RWE, one of the major utility companies in Germany. With Itron’s smart water metering solution, RWW will be able to detect water loss, identify potential theft and increase billing accuracy.

Itron’s intelligent solution detects low flow rates and flags abnormally high consumption patterns. As a result, RWW will be able to pursue more focused management of its distribution system to preserve water. Moreover, the system will enable bills over shorter periods of time that are easier to understand, empowering customers to more closely monitor their own consumption and discontinue potential wastage.

As a part of the solution, RWW will install 160,000 volumetric residential meters and 40,000 multi-jet meters. In addition, Itron will deliver a C&I supervision system, including commercial and industrial (C&I) water meters and Itron’s WaterMind solution, for an extensive non-revenue water reduction project. The deployment will be conducted over four years, starting immediately. Itron will also provide comprehensive training for RWW staff.

“Itron’s technology met our requirements perfectly. We initiated the roll-out of Itron’s volumetric water meters to provide more accurate billing and to cut down on maintenance through enhanced long-term stability of the hardware,” said Dr. Christoph Donner, technical director at RWW. “The decision wasn’t based merely on the technological features of the solution; it was also important to find a strong partner who truly understands the complex challenges of network efficiency.”

“Itron’s technology is well-suited to enhance the service of water supply networks. Our smart water metering solution will help RWW pursue effective network management and improve customer service,” said Marco Sievers, head of sales for water and heat in Germany. “Together, RWW and Itron set out to make Western Germany a more water-efficient place for the benefit of RWW’s customers and for the sake of the environment.”
