US tech company Itron continues its run of global contracts with a deal to supply  120,000 automated meter reading water meters to utility Hamburg Wasser, provider to nearly 2 million people in Germany’s second largest city.

Over the next three years, Hamburg Wasser will install Itron AMR-ready water meters in a bid to improve customer billing, recover revenue and account for water usage to conserve resources. 

Marco Sievers, senior sales manager Utility, Water and Heat at Itron Germany, said: “Itron has extensive knowledge and experience in the utility industry, helping water utilities better manage resources.
“We look forward to sharing this expertise with Hamburg Wasser as they upgrade their metering system.”
