COPASA expands water meter order with Elster


São Paulo, Brazil and Luton, England — (METERING.COM) — December 16, 2011 – Brazil’s second largest water utility Companhia de Saneamento de Minas Gerais (COPASA) has selected Elster to supply more than 111,000 S120 single jet water meters over the next 12 months.

This follows COPASA’s selection of Elster in June 2011 to supply 63,000 glass and plastic register cover S120 single jet water meters to support its metering programs.

COPASA is one of the leading operators of water services in Brazil, supplying more than 3.5 million domestic and business customers in the southeast of Brazil with water services.

At COPASA, the S120 meter will provide more accurate water usage measurement, helping improve revenue generation and customer service. COPASA will deploy a combination of plastic register cover single jet meters, including a standard flat plain version and a 45-degree version for easier meter reading.

“COPASA is impressed with the S120 single jet water meter and we look forward to our continued relationship with Elster,” said the company’s water meter manager Arnaldo Reis Carvalho Filho.
