ABB Measurement & Analytics has won a multi-million pound framework agreement with UK utility Thames Water to expand its supply of instrumentation equipment.

The framework will see ABB offering pressure instrumentation and electromagnetic flowmeters, with the addition of clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters and borehole level transmitters sourced through its established partnerships with Katronic and Impress Sensors.

As well as the equipment from Katronic and Impress, ABB will also be supplying thermal mass and swirl flowmeters for use in applications including gas and biogas lines at Thames Water’s sewage treatment and thermal hydrolysis plants (THP) process digesters.


Thames Water has set itself key targets in line with the outcomes focused approach set by Ofwat for AMP6. These include ensuring the continued performance of its water distribution network, minimising interruptions to supply caused by factors such as pressure problems and leakage, and ensuring the continued quality of the potable water supply.

ABB has been a supplier to Thames Water for over 20 years, supplying battery and mains electromagnetic and coriolis flowmeters and gauge, absolute and differential pressure transmitters for use across the company’s distribution network and treatment works

Steve Wilding, field sales manager for ABB Measurement & Analytics in the UK and Ireland, said: “The addition of the equipment from Impress and Katronic, together with our thermal mass and swirl flowmeters, will allow us to act as a complete partner covering Thames’ complete flow and pressure measurement requirements.”
