AMR installation contract awarded

The City of Medford in Massachusetts has signed an agreement with Terasen Utility Services to become the prime contractor for the exchange of Medford’s entire water meter population, replacing them with a fixed network AMR system. Terasen partnered with AMCO Water Metering Systems and Hexagram to secure the contract, which will result in the installation of nearly 14,000 water meters over the next year. Installation of the fixed network infrastructure and data collection system is underway, and Terasen will begin installation of meters and AMR devices in the near future.

In addition to providing project management, full-time field installation staff, office and warehouse space, inventory management services, vehicles and uniforms, Terasen will manage a call centre for appointment scheduling to access water meters located inside customer premises.
