SPAIN: Elster wins major metering contract (10/04/12)
Spain’s Consorcio de Aguas de Bilbao Bizkaia has chosen Elster to supply up to 42,000 S220 single-jet water meters over the next two years. The utility manages the primary water supply and drainage network for around one million inhabitants, providing services to 90% of the population of Bizkaia.
The tender was divided into three zones with Elster winning Zone A, which is 47% of the total award. As part of the contract Elster will also install a fixed network AMI system to enable the utility to manage its water resources more efficiently. The meter has a dynamic flow range up to R200, and can be equipped with a bi-directional pulser that makes it suitable for remote consumption reading.
