Moldovan utility selects Itron to modernise metering infrastructure


Floresti Communal Services in Moldova, Eastern Europe, has selected Itron to modernise its metering infrastructure.

The utility will deploy Itron’s Water Operations Management solution, wide-area low-power network, and residential and commercial & industrial (C&I) water meters.

The project will help the utility to improve operational efficiency, conserve water, and improve operational visibility, pressure management, data analysis and meter data management.

Itron’s water meters, equipped with Everblu Cyble Enhanced modules for fixed network data collection, will enable the utility to streamline meter reading and gather hourly water consumption data. The utility will also be able to reduce real and apparent water loss with access to water intelligence and tampering alarms.

“By implementing Itron’s technology, we will be able to improve operational efficiency while reducing NRW loss.”
